Our Elastic Engineering pod works alongside your internal team in an agile, sprint-based model to move your cloud initiatives forward. Your team can leverage our collective expertise to learn-while-doing, adhering to best practices and absorbing knowledge from a wide range of cloud projects.

Working together

Rackspace Elastic Engineering is a cost-effective route to access the high-value and high-impact cloud expertise your business needs to operate in the modern cloud, which traditionally was only available through narrowly defined professional services engagements.
