Launching the Rackspace Managed Cloud (RMC), Rackspace TechnRMCology, a pioneer in hybrid multicloud technology solutions internationally, claims to be redefining cloud management. This new technology, which encompasses AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Rackspace Private Cloud, and on-premises infrastructures, would completely transform how businesses manage their cloud setups.

The introduction of Rackspace Managed Cloud would coincide with a pivotal moment in the fast-changing cloud environment. According to Rackspace, businesses are finding it more difficult to effectively manage multicloud and hybrid cloud setups.

RMC would offer a complete cloud management and operations outsourcing solution in an effort to streamline this complex environment.

“RMC merges the benefits of consistent cloud operations with cutting-edge engineering, boosting performance, fortifying security, and enhancing end-customer experiences,” said Mike Lindbert, Senior Director of Public Cloud Product at Rackspace Technology. “This empowers businesses to adapt swiftly to changing demands while maintaining control over operational and infrastructure costs in the cloud economy.”
