Hybrid Hosting

Create the perfect cloud for your business with RackConnect

Get your best-fit architecture

Sometimes the best infrastructure for your app or site combines cloud with dedicated hardware. The Rackspace Hybrid Cloud delivers performance, reliability, enhanced security, and economics by bringing together:

  • Public cloud for pay-as-you-go scalability, ideal for heavy/unpredictable traffic
  • Dedicated servers for ultra-fast performance and reliability


Private cloud user? We can connect that to a public cloud too, for a truly scalable solution.

Whatever option you choose, we back it all with Fanatical Support® to help you plan, architect, and run your hybrid cloud environment. Ready to get started? Chat with us.

We're always doing our utmost to solve your problems and keep your environment running, and you'll always get direct one-on-one interactions- no automated menus. We have the expertise and flexibility to help fix any issues; our SLA's guarantee a 1 hour replacement for hardware failures.

If we don't meet our contractual obligations and can't make it right, you can leave. Stay because you want to, not because you have to.
