Rackspace Launches VMware Powered Private Cloud Services

VMware fans will love the new private cloud offering from Rackspace built entirely with VMware’s virtualization software vCloud. Called Rackspace Private Cloud – the new service is aimed at offering greater control and security as opposed to multi-tenant clouds, while retaining much of the scalability and flexibility of shared cloud services. Rackspace CTO John Engates said Rackspace is aiming to provide a “true hybrid experience” with its options ranging from dedicated hosting, to multi-tenant cloud, to specialized application hosting (such as email hosting), to the new private cloud offering.

We view the Rackspace Private Cloud as having a large impact for our enterprise customers who need the flexibility, scalability, and reliability provided byVMware’s virtualization, paired with the control and security of a dedicated environment. It is the best of both worlds for those enterprises looking to explore the benefits of external cloud solutions, without as much risk.

Rackspace customers are given monitoring & maintenance services for their VMware software stack, including installation and configuration of the vCenter Server, vCenter Server backups, and hypervisor monitoring. Rackspace also backs up user VMs, and patches and monitors the guest OS and the antivirus software on Rackspace-provided OS images.
