OpenStack Public Cloud

Achieve the ease of use, stability and expert, always-on support you need, so you can focus on your business.

Businesses often need a simple, stable and highly supported public cloud — one that’s easy to get started with, easy to grow and easy to use. That’s why we’ve stripped out the complexity found in other clouds to offer a public cloud that’s easy to use and reliable right out of the box.

With OpenStack® Public Cloud from Rackspace Technology™, you get all the benefits of cloud computing — including utility billing, on-demand resources and scalability — without the hassles of managing it on your own. With competitive SLAs, our 100% Network Uptime and 99.99% Server Uptime Guarantees, best-practice security features, and expert, always-on support, you’ll have everything you need to develop your applications.

Choose from two service levels: Managed Infrastructure and Managed Operations

  • Managed Infrastructure: This service level is ideal when you already possess the skills and knowledge needed to perform day-to-day system administrator tasks, but want on-demand guidance and best practice recommendations. Our team can help you improve the availability, scalability and security of your OpenStack cloud.
  • Managed Operations: This service level includes all the features of Managed Infrastructure,  plus we’ll do the administrative heavy lifting for you. Our cloud engineers perform frequent system administrator tasks to improve reliability and performance. They also perform routine maintenance and troubleshooting of your OpenStack cloud

No matter which service level you choose, you’ll get ongoing, one-on-one engagement with a Technical Onboarding Manager for your first 60 days — providing recommendations for strategic and effective use of Rackspace Technology services and solutions.
