Private Cloud

What is a private cloud?

A private cloud is a scalable cloud environment, built on infrastructure that’s purely dedicated to your business. Whether you host it in your data centre, a partner data centre, or at a Rackspace facility, you’ll get the agility and efficiency of an Openstack-based public cloud for your own use. Whether you would like Rackspace’s experts to design a bespoke cloud for you, or if you want to download our free and simple private cloud installer, we can build the perfect cloud for your business and back it with tailored support options.

We also offer a training and certification program, with real-world situations in a training lab environment to help you get the most from your private cloud solution.
