Managed Virtualization - powered by VMware

Your core business isn't managing infrastructure. So why do so many of your resources go toward purchasing, maintaining, and refreshing hardware, and running your on-premise VMware® environment?

Focus on projects that grow your business, and move your traditional apps to our fully managed data centres. You'll get customizable, single-tenant infrastructure that can be architected to support even the most demanding workloads. Our experienced engineers are available 24x7x365 to help architect, deploy, and troubleshoot your hosted VMware environment.

Increase agility

Increase or decrease your capacity to match changing demands. Free up your internal IT resources to focus on projects that enhance your core business.

Reduce risk

We can help you architect a hosted environment using hardware from trusted vendors like EMC®, Dell®, and Cisco®. It’s all backed by our robust SLAs including a 100% Network Uptime Guarantee and a One-Hour Hardware Replacement Guarantee.

Migrate apps into a hybrid architecture

For those traditional apps that are a good fit, leverage a hybrid architecture to optimize performance and cost by placing the database component on a bare-metal server and then connecting your dedicated environment to the Rackspace Public Cloud for bursting in times of high demand.

We have extensive experience managing VMware at scale. We've focused on hosting VMware since 2006 and have deployed thousands of environments of all shapes, sizes and complexities. Our architectures include VMware's best practices and our own policies and processes that we've honed over almost a decade.
