Access our expertise
We've focused on hosting VMware since 2006 and have deployed thousands of environments of all shapes, sizes and complexities. We're one of VMware's largest vCloud Air Network partners, with elevated access to technical specialists for rapid resolution.
Get dedicated infrastructure — from storage, host machines and networking through the VMware software stack. Everything is installed, configured, managed and monitored 24x7x365 by experienced engineers.
VMware Certified Professionals (VCPs) help architect, deploy and troubleshoot your environment, no matter how complex. Gartner® has recognized Rackspace as a leader in their Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting.
Get the enhanced security of a single-tenant environment with physically isolated network, compute and storage layers.
Managed guest OS support
We proactively support the guest OS layer, including managed VM backups, antivirus, OS monitoring and patching. We can also support different kinds of databases.
Dedicated hardware resources provide consistent performance. No shared environments mean no tenancy-related performance compromises and no noisy-neighbor effect.
Visibility to important statistics
Manage your virtual environment from the MyRackspace portal. Use statistics to determine your available compute capacity (CPU, disk and memory) and any compute constraints caused by resource-intensive VMs or apps. You can also call us if you need help.
Quick recovery from unexpected failures
Safely commit changes and roll back updates to your VMs by saving snapshots before making changes. We offer a range of resiliency solutions to help protect your environments in the event of disaster or unexpected downtime.
High performance configuration options
We can handle your most performance-hungry workloads. Rackspace offers flexible virtual CPU and RAM options, the ability to break apps up into component parts and place them in a hybrid architecture, plus the option to quickly scale out into our public cloud.
"Actual uptime is higher and flexibility is also greater. It is much simpler to upscale and downscale capacity than it was before and, thanks to the price model we’ve chosen, the costs are transparent to us and to our clients."Martin Goossens, Director of Support & Hosting, Planon Software
