Rackspace Offers IT Modernization Expertise at VMworld 2018

It’s time again for VMworld US!

Thousands will descend on Las Vegas next week, seeking solutions to some of their thorniest IT challenges. One of the most critical: how to drive digital transformation, getting the right balance between modernizing data centers and extending into the cloud. From virtualized infrastructure to hybrid and public cloud, there are many paths to transformation.

Rackspace can help you find the right path. Come visit us in booth #1025 or set up a meeting ahead of time to learn how organizations are benefiting from our innovative and market-leading products and services.

We promise, after meeting with our experts, you’ll understand why VMware named Rackspace its 2017 Global and Americas Integrate Public Clouds Partner of the Year.

Customers asked, and we’ve delivered: our expanded VMware Private Cloud as a Service allows customers to run VMware workloads on or off premise, enabling them to consume private clouds, as a service, in any data center anywhere in the world — their own, a colocation facility or a data center managed by Rackspace.

We’ve also brought the benefits of public cloud, with utility-like service, enhanced capacity planning and instant scalability to enterprise customers with the industry’s first Private Cloud-as-a-Service powered by VMware, with pay per use infrastructure

And if you’re considering VMware Cloud on AWS, no one has more expertise across both VMware and AWS than Rackspace. This expertise, combined with the capabilities of the VMware Cloud on AWS offering, deliver a unique value in helping our customers leverage these two leading platforms to their full potential. Set up a meeting at VMworld to learn more.
