Rackspace supports Microsoft cloud platform in all of its US data centres

Rackspace now supports Microsoft’s cloud platform, which includes Microsoft Hyper-V, System Center, Windows Server, and Windows Azure Pack, in all of its US data centres.

The new Rackspace offering, which is delivered as part of its Managed Cloud strategy, will enable corporations to maximise their IT resources, focus on managing solutions rather than hardware and use both public and private cloud in a way that best benefits their business. In addition, customers will benefit from Rackspace Fanatical Support.

“I feel like the first 15 years of Rackspace was getting us ready for this moment and it was only natural that we take our years of experience supporting Microsoft servers and apply it to managing Microsoft clouds,” said Jeff DeVerter, general manager of Microsoft Private Cloud at Rackspace in a blog post. “We have also shared this expertise with the Microsoft Cloud OS Network, which has a mission to deliver a consistent platform across customer data centres in Microsoft Azure and through providers like Rackspace.”

The company, which has also become a member of the Microsoft Cloud OS Network, will support Microsoft’s cloud platform as part of its Managed Cloud strategy.

“I am extremely excited to see Rackspace deepening its support for Microsoft technology and its entrance into the Cloud OS Network,” said Marco Limena, vice president of Hosting Service Providers at Microsoft, in a blog post. “The combination of its Fanatical Support and the Microsoft cloud platform delivers a compelling solution for customers that require a private hosted solution.
