Rackspace offers colo option

Managed cloud provider Rackspace has added colocation services to its portfolio.

The Rackspace colocation service is now available at the company's data centres in Sydney, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, Northern New Jersey, Northern Virginia, San Jose, Hong Kong, London, and Moscow.

The idea is that customers can save money by moving equipment from their own data centres to those operated by Rackspace, as well as benefitting from direct connections to AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.

Rackspace guarantees any hardware service requests will be responded to within an hour, and completed within 24 hours.

"When it comes to cloud migration projects, many companies don't know where to start. Colocation enables companies to move out of their self-managed data centre to lower their total cost of ownership, as they seek to optimise their IT portfolio across public and private clouds," said Rackspace ANZ managing director Darryn McCoskery.

"Rackspace is unique in market by fully managing our customers' digital transformation and offering direct connection, migration services, and ongoing management across a number of cloud environments."
