Your Modern Private Cloud - Anywhere

Gain the competitive advantage with the next generation of private cloud innovations for greater performance, flexibility and cost efficiencies you need with the security, compliance and control of a dedicated environment.

Business scenarios that require the highest levels of security, control and performance may call for private cloud. From simple colocation to highly sophisticated hybrid-cloud software-defined data center (SDDC) architectures, we help you define and solve your private cloud needs.

We are the only multicloud provider offering the industry’s broadest portfolio of managed private and hybrid cloud solutions across VMware, the leading hyperscalers (AWS, Microsoft, Google), Bare Metal and OpenStack. And we can deliver, manage and optimize your private cloud solutions anywhere your business requires - in your data center, a 3rd party colocation facility including  a dedicated Rackspace Technology data center or in one of our leading technology partners’ data centers. Wherever you are, and wherever you need to be, we can fulfill your requirements with the amount of expertise and service management that works for you. And with RackConnect? Global, you can also get direct, private connectivity between data centers and your public cloud instances.

Use Cases

Maintain legacy and mission-critical applications in a private cloud while gaining many of the benefits of public cloud.

Extend your on-premises footprint with secure cloud capacity, and without adding hardware. Develop cloud-native apps within an environment similar to on-premises environment.

Consolidate data centers or move off-premises into the cloud for greater cost efficiency, improved lifecycle management and ease of operations. Progressively migrate specific applications to a secure cloud environment for specific business needs.

Build resiliency and protect against data loss with disaster recovery, off-site data backup and remote worker solutions including VDI and remote data center management.

Up-level performance of your applications and workloads that require low-latency and intensive processing.

Address governance, security and compliance mandates with secure resources dedicated to your organization.

Expand geo-specific capacity so data and processing can execute close together, minimizing latency and network costs while helping to maximize performance.

Move to the cloud without re-architecting applications or scale an environment to other cloud providers.
