The Levels of Managed Hosting

In a managed hosting environment, your provider owns and is responsible for the data center, network, devices, operating system and application infrastructure components, providing a stable operating environment for your applications. Your IT organization manages your applications and maintains full control over the operating system and application infrastructure.

Managed Hosting provides more value than colocation and dedicated hosting because it frees more of your IT personnel from mundane infrastructure related tasks, personnel that can now be reallocated to understanding and supporting your business more effectively.

Managed Hosting also provides greater responsiveness than fully outsourced solutions because it emphasizes a flexible bottom-up approach to delivering value that puts you fully in control of your OS, application infrastructure and application. In addition, Rackspace  Hosting also delivers a number of key services designed to keep your applications secure, stable and responsive to your changing business needs.

Different levels of managed hosting

Rackspace Cloud Drive – powered by Jungle Disk Workgroup

Stop dealing with the hassle of managing a file server. Store, share, sync, and automatically back up files for individuals or teams. Easily set up multiple drives that can be accessed from any desktop or on-the-go through a secure web interface. Rackspace Cloud Drive is fast, secure, and scalable with pay-as-you-go storage pricing.

Store Files

Securely store files in the cloud and access them anywhere via a virtual network drive on your desktop or on the web. There is no learning curve; it works just like any other drive, drag and drop, copy and delete. Store an unlimited number of files with an included 10GB per user and additional storage available on demand.

Share Files

Ditch the file server and USB key for sharing files amongst workgroups. Assign access permissions for individuals and teams across multiple drives. Sharing large files has never been easier.


Easily restore lost files with automatics backup. Set the backup schedule and apply it to specific files, folders, or an entire drive. File change monitoring and de-duplication makes the process fast and consistent. Receive backup updates on your desktop, by email, or RSS. Never worry about data loss again.


Sync files across multiple teams and desktops. Assign folders on multiple local machines to sync with the online drive. Files are updated as changes are made and are synced online as well as on teammate’s computers. Go offline and keep working; the files will update as soon as an Internet connection is established. Never work on an outdated document again.

Remote Access

Don’t be glued to the desktop. Work from anywhere with secure remote access to your files. Access files through a web-based interface or your favorite smartphone.
