VMware Private Cloud Solutions for Healthcare by Rackspace

With costs on the rise and IT budgets decreasing, healthcare organizations are looking to get out of the data center business and migrate applications to the cloud.

Healthcare has the leanest staffing ratios in all of IT, and are being asked to do more with less people and shrinking budgets. That’s why, according to analysts at IDC, healthcare providers are shifting up to a quarter of their software budgets into projects that leverage managed hosting by a third party, like Rackspace.

Rackspace helps health insurance companies, medical practices, biotech, pharmaceutical and healthcare SaaS providers, consolidate their data centers and accelerate hybrid cloud adoption, without leaving their substantial VMware investments behind.

  • No retooling or refactoring needed: Use the same VMware technology running in your current data centers, allowing you to migrate and expand without retooling environments or refactoring code.
  • Automation with control: Automate the rapid delivery of resources while maintaining control via policy-based governance and enforcement of resource quotas, service levels, PHI security, and HIPAA compliance standards.
  • DevOps enablement: Rapidly provision infrastructure and application resources to developers while integrating existing delivery and configuration management tools and workflows.
  • On-demand access: Leverage the service catalog and portal to access your virtualization infrastructure, apps and custom services to accelerate the delivery of personalized resources for the growing IoT.
