Public Cloud based hosting
We team our highly tuned Linux stack for PHP with the Rackspace public cloud, which provides a range of tiers and prices to suit a range of applications. Our offer is fast, flexible, scaleable and secure. You might just need some cheap virtual machines to dev on and we can do that. Or you might need a cheap, scalable web application server layer but something a bit more specialist and a bit more scary under the hood. Thanks to the unique RackConnect® system, we can hook public virtual machines into our private network, allowing us to provision private cloud or even dedicated servers on the back end to compliment a scalable public cloud web front-end.
Private Cloud based hosting
The public cloud has one weakness: stability. The cloud is disposable by design. And it's shared freely, and while all public cloud providers do their best to shield customers from each other's activity, any honest operator will tell you that's not always possible. That's why we provisioned a VMWare private cloud. It's not suitable for all our customers and, as with all things, it's a trade-off. It is less flexible (provisioning new hardware can take a week) and it's more expensive (there's a lot more resource behind it) but it's rock-solid stable. So if what you need is 100% availability, no ifs, no buts, no "noisy neighbours" taking your site down, our Rackspace Managed Cloud is probably for you.
We manage your servers
