Private cloud solutions

Gain the freedom to innovate, no matter where you run your workloads

Most businesses already have a hybrid multicloud environment: They use public cloud services, but they also depend on legacy applications and data centers. If this describes your organization, you’re likely seeking ways to extend the benefits of public cloud across your entire IT estate — with the assumption that the only way to achieve that goal is to migrate your legacy applications to public cloud.

Rackspace Technology™ offers a different, better option for your business. Our VMware-based hybrid cloud solutions give you the benefits of consumption-based pricing and multi-tenancy. They also provide self-service, rapid provisioning and automation — in both public and managed private cloud domains.

You can continue operating in your familiar VMware environment, using a private cloud solution that delivers the same benefits as a public cloud, without having to undertake time-consuming and costly application modernization programs. With a private cloud solution from Rackspace Technology, you get the immediate benefits of public cloud with the luxury and flexibility of modernizing your applications when it suits you, all the while securing your most-sensitive data in your private cloud deployment.

Use Cases

Our modern private cloud solutions allow you to run and optimize workloads in the best location and on the best infrastructure, without any major rework. We make it possible both to move to the cloud without re-architecting applications, and to scale your environment to other types of cloud deployments.

We ensure that you maintain and run legacy and mission-critical applications where it makes most sense:

  • Save the cost of a prohibitively expensive migration
  • Continue using in-house developed applications in your private cloud hosting until you're ready to retire them
  • Avoid the expense of high-volume data management in the public cloud
  • Keep applications and computing resources that run critical core processes or support third-parties on-site
