Rackspace Receives EMC Global Alliances Partner Award for Third Year in a Row

During EMC World this year, Michael Dell highlighted the incredible transformation our society is undergoing — a transformation driven by rapid technology breakthroughs that are changing the way we work, live and communicate. It’s a transformation as monumental as the one driven by the industrial revolution.

For businesses to be successful, this transformation cannot be undertaken alone. It will require expertise across many areas, and for the companies leading this transformation, like Dell and EMC, much of that expertise is being provided by its partners.

That’s why it was truly an honor for EMC to recognize Rackspace with its exclusive Global Alliances Partner Award for the third year in a row as the 2015 Global Service Provider Partner of the Year.

Rackspace was selected from among some of the top cloud service providers in the industry for its level of joint collaboration on delivering customer solutions, exceeding growth expectations and demonstrating a commitment to excellence through innovation and thought leadership.

As an EMC Platinum Cloud Service Provider, our long-standing relationship continues to grow. We’re expanding our collaboration beyond offering EMC’s world-class storage portfolio to include leveraging EMC’s professional services and consulting throughout our offerings, exploring new joint go-to-market opportunities and tightly aligning all parts of our organizations – from support to operations to sales and marketing teams.

It’s being fanatical about everything Rackspace does for the customer that allows us to do more than just solve IT problems, to deliver quantifiable business outcomes.

EMC’s announcement follows VMware’s recognition of Rackspace earlier in the year as the VMware Americas Service Provider Partner of the Year.

This type of high-level recognition from other industry leaders is a testament to our relentless effort to go above and beyond, to deliver the best services possible to our customers, including a broad Dedicated Storage portfolio to support demanding workloads and use cases, backed by our award winning Fanatical Support.

Together, Rackspace and EMC will continue to deliver solutions enabling our customers to successfully navigate this amazing digital transformation by tapping the power of multiple cloud platforms and technologies.
