This is an excerpt from Rackspace’s Deep Dive Series. In this video Shantu Roy, CTO of Rackspace VMware Practice, walks us through the Rackspace Managed VMware portfolio of offerings. First, we have Server Virtualization, a fully managed virtualization solution. In this scenario, our customers want to offload the day to day operations associated with virtualization to Rackspace. For our Dedicated vCenter and Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware vCloud. In these solutions, we support everything below the virtualization layer. These are perfect solutions for customers who have a mature VMware implementation and VMware expertise in house. Dedicated vCenter allows customers to extend workloads into our cloud, while RPC powered by VMware vCloud exposes more advanced capabilities to support the IT group’s transition to a Service Broker model. Each of these offerings takes into account where are customers are on their virtualization journey.
