Since the rebranding of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) to the VMware vCloud Air Network last year, VMware has continued to deepen relationships with service providers.

VMware vCloud Air Network service providers offer customers several benefits, including:

  • A seamless transition to cloud for VMware customers
  • Multiple compliance certifications, managed and application services, and vertical market specializations that meet business requirements
  • Data sovereignty provided through local data centers
  • Plus much more!

Rackspace, one of the largest VMware vCloud Air Network service providers, has been providing single-tenant, VMware-based managed hosting services for over 9 years, using their proactive Fanatical Support® to help their customers offload the maintenance and monitoring of the infrastructure, the VMware stack and guest OS so that they can focus on higher-value projects.

Taylor Rhodes, CEO at Rackspace, notes, “We’re seeing even more demand from customers who want a hybrid cloud that leverages VMware orchestration and management tools… VMware and its partners are playing a key role in [the market transformation to managed cloud]. A big part of that market will want the combination of VMware’s great technology and Rackspace’s special brand of Fanatical Support.”
