The open alternative to cloud lock-in

OpenStack® is an open and scalable operating system for building public and private clouds. It provides both large and small organizations an alternative to closed cloud environments, reducing the risks of lock-in associated with proprietary platforms. OpenStack offers flexibility and choice through a highly engaged community of over 6,000 individuals and over 190 companies including Rackspace®, Dell, HP, IBM, and Red Hat®.

Supported by over 6000 customers

OpenStack was invented by Rackspace and NASA, and the OpenStack community has grown today into a global collective of innovators, developers, software and hardware vendors and service providers with more than 6,000 contributing developers and approximately 850 organisations involved.

Rackspace Private Cloud provides the scalability and self service capabilities of the cloud with your security, location or other requirements. We will deploy and manage an OpenStack-powered private cloud for you that can be fully hosted at Rackspace, colocated in over 100 global partner data centers or hosted in your own data center.

OpenStack Training

Open Stack training can provide you with the knowledge to install, run and operate your own OpenStack clouds. The training immerses you in the OpenStack environment, so you can evaluate whether it is suitable for you and your needs and how you can improve performance of an existing installation.
