Rackspace is now delivering OpenStack everywhere, enabling customers to run a fully-managed OpenStack private cloud in their data center of choice — whether it’s in their own, a third party data center, a Rackspace-supported third party colocation facility or a Rackspace data center.

From the floor tiles all the way up the service stack, Rackspace is extending our signature Fanatical Support and hosting model into any data center the customer chooses. We fully manage the underlying OpenStack software and hardware, including all compute, network and storage.

This new solution enables customers to run OpenStack private clouds without the high cost, risk and operational burden of doing it themselves. And companies can free up money and resources by moving their IT infrastructure from a capital expense to an operating expense model.

Check out Rackspace CTO John Engates and Director of Solution Engineering Ryan Yard, in the video above, breaking down the details and customer benefits of this new OpenStack private cloud solution.
