Cloud Technology enabler companies - Rackspace

Rackspace is an enterprise-hosting provider with the majority of its customer base in the cloud. The company has three core products that all deliver computing as a service:

✓ Rackspace Managed Hosting
✓ Rackspace Cloud
✓ Rackspace Email and Apps

Rackspace Cloud focuses on hosting Web sites for its customers. It provides storage space, bandwidth usage, and compute cycles. It also has a service for companies that want to gradually move their whole operation into the cloud. The Rackspace private cloud offering enables your company to run the centrally managed VMware virtualization platform on private dedicated hardware environments in its own data center. It is designed with singletenant architecture because Rackspace feels that this approach will provide its customers with the level of control and security they demand from the cloud. Companies want control, but they don’t want to give up on the scalability, flexibility, and resource optimization they can get from a public cloud. Rackspace’s customers are able to quickly provision virtualized server instances and use only what they need.
