Hybrid Hosting

Create the perfect cloud for your business with RackConnect

Sometimes, one ingredient just isn’t enough – you need a mixture to bake the whole cake (or website). Hybrid Hosting includes the use of public and private cloud combined with hardware to provide a dedicated and specific service to suit your needs. But how will you know what ingredients to sift into the mixing bowl? Try our Solution Finder, a simple-to-use multiple choice tool that will whisk together all your factors to create the perfect selection of specifications to suit you (in less time than it takes to bake a cake, for the record).

Get your best-fit architecture

Sometimes the best infrastructure for your app or site combines cloud with dedicated hardware. The Rackspace Hybrid Cloud delivers performance, reliability, enhanced security, and economics by bringing together:

  • Public cloud for pay-as-you-go scalability, ideal for heavy/unpredictable traffic
  • Private cloud for the enhanced security your data demands
  • Dedicated servers for ultra-fast performance and reliability

 

We back it all with Fanatical Support® to help you plan, architect, and run your hybrid cloud environment.
