Technical and Product News and Insights from Rackspace
Rackspace Technology doubles down on Rackspace Government Cloud (RGC), expanding into the U.K. and leveraging strategic partners, VMware® and Dell Technologies®.
Rackspace Technology (NASDAQ: RXT), a leading end-to-end multicloud technology solutions company, recently made the following announcements:
VMware: Rackspace Technology is strengthening our strategic alliance with VMware by expanding our managed services across VMware-based multicloud solutions.
Dell: We are working with Dell Technologies to create new modernized solutions for multicloud. Rackspace Technology is expanding its Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware (RPCV) portfolio with the Dell Technologies Cloud Platform (DTCP).
Rackspace offers this solution as a direct result of validated customer demand and observation of increasing government customer security requirements, both in the U.S. and the U.K. The solution couples our tested and secured VMware platform design with a comprehensive, managed, ITIL-aligned service wrap that meets the stringent security requirements of government departments and public sector organizations. As a Dell Titanium Partner and VMware Principal Partner, Rackspace Technology extends years of experience, a wealth of expertise, and proven architecture so that customers receive optimal advantages from these leading technologies.
The solution provides you with a dedicated private cloud platform designed to meet current security guidance from both the U.K. and U.S. national cybersecurity authorities. We host your platform in secure cabinets within Rackspace Government data centers and support the service with suitably security-cleared sovereign staff, experienced in the enhanced controls necessary for supporting government customers.
When you choose Rackspace Government Cloud on VMware, you get the following services, delivered by a team who truly understands the specific requirements of government and public sector customers:
As part of the solution’s fully managed service wrap, we operate, manage, monitor, and control your environment’s security components from the physical facilities to the host OS and virtualization layer.
Within the U.K., we provide this service through our Public Services Network (PSN) service-provider-accredited, secure management platform, RGC Central. This walled-garden environment ensures complete separation between your solution and the Rackspace corporate network. The environment hosts stand-alone, accredited support tools with customers managed as individual tenants within each tool. This approach ensures that we secure and separate all sensitive customer data and that customers have support solutions that meet their own security requirements.
Within the U.S., Rackspace Technology remains a leader in the FedRAMP authorization-enablement space, powering 15 FedRAMP ATOs built on our managed service. We provide 24x7x365 hybrid-cloud management, operational support, and security services as a packaged, on-demand, audited, and pay-as-you-go service. Rackspace Technology also handles approximately 80% of the operational and documentation burden of your environment’s security and compliance requirements to help you receive a FedRAMP ATO.
As a result of these enhanced strategic alignments with VMware and Dell, Rackspace Technology is expanding its portfolio with both RPCV and DTCP and bringing that innovation to our government customers.
