What are the benefits of using AWS?

Be faster to market

Competitive pressures mean you need to evolve products and new features faster and reduce time-to-market. With unique capabilities enabled by automating deployments and the breath of developer toolsets, you can respond to customer needs and innovate more quickly.

Lower your costs

Deploying applications on AWS costs significantly less than deploying on-premise – plus, you benefit from autoscaling for peaks and the ability to test in the cloud. And because application services and new feature releases can be automated, you save even more.

Improve security
& compliance

AWS offers the highest standards in industry compliance such as PCI and HIPAA, plus it provides an expansive toolset of security products. Complemented by a Shared Responsibility Model, Rackspace can guide you on how to implement them.

Expand your
addressable market

You can deploy applications across the globe easily, thanks to the extensive geographic reach of AWS. And when it comes to showcasing your software the global presence of AWS Marketplace opens the door to many new geographical markets.

“The Rackspace onboarding and architecture team provided detailed advice on which cloud-native services to use when building out our cloud platform, while taking into consideration our unique requirements.”
