OpenStack Private Cloud

Get a full-service experience for building, managing and operating your OpenStack private cloud.

OpenStack® Private Cloud can help you increase agility and lower costs while avoiding vendor lock-in. However, half of all businesses attempting to implement OpenStack fail — not just because it’s complex, but because they also lack specific platform expertise.

To succeed with OpenStack, you need assistance from certified experts who know how to architect, secure, monitor, patch and upgrade OpenStack clouds. OpenStack Private Cloud from Rackspace Technology is the answer. We blend technology and automation plus human experts to deliver ongoing architecture, security and 24x7x365 operations backed by 1,000+ OpenStack experts.
