A prime example is the proactive monitoring of services, supported by health warnings that come not just in the form of alert emails – but with a phone call from a real person who genuinely understands our needs and is as focused on maintaining the high quality of our sites as we are. An equally important aspect is the speed with which new devices can be commissioned and any equipment failures resolved – one-hour server replacement is guaranteed. Rackspace has within its DNA a culture of absolute client focused service excellence – this translates into going the extra mile at every interaction, and is embodied in their everyday business through Fanatical Support.”
