RapidScale, a U.S. based managed cloud services provider that was acquired by Cox Business almost three years ago, has achieved VMware Cloud Verified status. The Cloud Verified designation indicates that a provider offers the complete VMware-based software defined data center infrastructure delivered as a service.
Clients that use VMware Cloud Verified partner services would get the highest levels of consistency, performance, and compatibility for conventional and containerized corporate applications, as well as the assurance that the service is built on the most modern VMware cloud technologies.
“We are thrilled to be a VMware Cloud Verified partner and make IT simple and efficient for our customers,” said Duane Barnes, vice president, and general manager, RapidScale. “By leveraging VMware’s Cloud Verified platform, we’re able to offer industry-leading cloud services for enterprises looking to sustain a more mobile, productive, and secure workforce with other innovative VMware technologies such as Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and SD-WAN.”
‘Efficiency, Agility, Reliability’
VMware’s worldwide network of over 4,500 VMware Cloud Providers uses VMware’s standard cloud architecture to deliver a wide range of services in over 120 countries, provide geographic and industry specialty, and assist clients in meeting difficult regulatory requirements.
