Rackspace - Managed cloud services

Rackspace is the No. 1 managed cloud company - helping businesses tap into the power of cloud computing without the pain, complexity and cost of doing it themselves (we are rated No. 1 according to Gartner, which ranked Rackspace as the leader in its 2014 and 2015 Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting Quadrants).

We deliver expertise, tools and results-obsessed customer service to support customers at scale across all the leading public and private clouds including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Adobe and VMware.

As organisations increasingly adopt multi-cloud models to meet their business needs, Rackspace is the only company that delivers a choice of public, private and hybrid cloud platforms, along with dedicated services on the world's leading cloud technologies.

We employ thousands of cloud engineers and experts who specialise in best practices for security, data services, ecommerce, web content management, email and collaboration, disaster recovery, and migration from data centre to cloud.

We help organisations architect, deploy, manage and secure their cloud infrastructures, allowing them to focus their valuable engineering resources on their core business.

Rackspace differentiates itself from others with Fanatical Support® - the specialised expertise and 24x7x365, results-obsessed customer service that has been a part of our DNA since 1999.

Market opportunity for managed cloud services

As cloud infrastructure prices drop, the number of cloud tools and applications is exploding, increasing the complexity for business users of the cloud.

Because of this, demand is rising for highly skilled expertise and support of IT infrastructure and cloud solutions.

Gartner Inc. conservatively estimates that mainstream corporations and government agencies will spend approximately $300 billion moving from in-house data centres to multi-cloud models in the coming years (according to Gartner's Forecast Analysis: IT Spending, Worldwide, 4Q15 Update).

According to 451 Research, managed services are projected to account for 36% of total cloud market revenue in 2018.

Competitive differentiation

Rackspace is the only provider with the specialised expertise and proven service model to deliver managed services for the leading clouds and cloud technologies.

While other providers offer managed services on one or two of the leading clouds, none have built their own cloud and run it at scale like Rackspace.

Whether organisations use public cloud, private cloud, dedicated servers or hybrid cloud; whether they use AWS, Azure, OpenStack or VMware - or some combination of these platforms and vendors - they know that the best way to manage their multi-cloud needs is to work with an expert, accountable, trusted partner - Rackspace.

Unlike its competitors, Rackspace helps each customer find the best fit where each of its workloads can achieve the highest performance and cost-efficiency.

Rackspace delivers expert guidance and improved outcomes for customers regardless of the infrastructures and technologies they choose.

Rackspace delivers the industry's most reliable OpenStack private cloud with a 99.99% uptime SLA.
