As OpenStack continues to become the leading private cloud choice, many companies have found that operating a private cloud is complicated. This complexity, along with the lack of OpenStack talent available in today's market, has created a challenge for companies as they look to adopt OpenStack as a private cloud.

By offering OpenStack private clouds as a service, the Rackspace Managed OpenStack Private Cloud product portfolio solves this problem for enterprises, providing customers a scalable, production ready private cloud in any data center.

Continuing to bring operational expertise to best of breed cloud technologies, Rackspace launched Rackspace Private Cloud powered by Red Hat in February, combining the support-focused practices of Rackspace and Red Hat together into a managed OpenStack private cloud solution.
