Rackspace Managed Private Clouds

This is for those that want the cloud, but not the headaches or IT management and need more security and support.

Built on dedicated, branded servers running VMware, these environments are protected by your dedicated Rackspace firewalls. They are designed to provide you with the best of both Cloud and Managed Hosting. So, the most important benefits of the Cloud-resource and budget optimization with rapid scaling up or down – can be had with the higher security and improved reliability of a Rackspace Managed Hosting Solution.

Our Managed Private Clouds are an even more secure and reliable approach to public Clouds.

And the best part is, you don’t have to invest in or build and manage your own Enterprise class private cloud to make it happen. We make it happen for you from the data center, to the network, to the VMs. All the nonstop work – purchasing the components and licenses, configuring your Private Cloud, patching operating systems and troubleshooting issues whenever they pop up – is taken care of on our end.

All you need to do is decide if one of our three recommended configurations will do the trick for you. Or if you want a built-to-fit solution based on your specific needs, we can do that too. Our around-the-clock Fanatical Support will take care of the rest.

The Smart Way to Scale

  1. Rapid VM provisioning makes scaling easier.
  2. Purchase custom configured VMs as you go and pay for them only when they’re turned on.
  3. Dedicated network and host machines provide added security.
  4. Automatic recovery keeps your up and running by providing redundancy.
