The Rackspace Process

Our approach has been tried, tested, and refined with thousands of customers over two decades. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Initial free consultation

    One of our expert Rackers will talk to you in detail about your specific needs and give you a no-obligation quote. We’ll help you make sense of the various cloud options available to you.

  1. Cloud-readiness assessment

    Our assessment process helps you understand how well your applications, data, and infrastructure are prepared for transitioning to the cloud with minimal disruption.

    Together, we’ll find answers to the following questions:

    • Are your applications designed in a way that facilitates deployment and replication?

    • Is your API infrastructure optimized for resource allocation able to scale up on demand?

    • Are your applications small enough to enable continuous deployment and maintenance?
  1. Choosing the right cloud platform

    Completing our assessment makes it much easier to work out which of the following approaches is best for you:
  1. Public cloud
    Pay-as-you-go scalability that reduces your IT costs and is ideal for heavy or unpredictable traffic.

  2. Private cloud
    Greater levels of control and security ideal for mission-critical applications and disaster recovery scenarios.

  3. Hybrid cloud
    Our proprietary RackConnect services enables full interoperability — a mix (hybrid) of public and private clouds.

  4. Multi cloud
    RackConnect also provides compatibility between cloud providers so you can spread your applications between AWS, Azure, Openstack, VMWare, and others. 
  1. Migration planning

Our Rackers will evaluate your current workloads, server configurations, security needs, and compliance requirements to reduce the impact to your organisation as you move to your new infrastructure.

We’ll design an appropriate migration strategy based on your applications, databases, storage, and your chosen destination environment. Then we’ll execute and migrate to the cloud according to the plan.

Deployment always includes rigorous testing to detect latency, expose application bottlenecks, and determine the limits of site performance. We’ll also test user scenario sequences from simple page loads to logins and dynamic content.

Zero downtime for your switch is always our objective

By aiming for excellence on this one critical metric, everything else falls neatly into place.

Our commitment is based on our understanding of what really causes downtime. You may find this surprising but technical knowhow isn’t the main cause.

Downtime on a cloud migration tends to happen when:

  1. You incorrectly assess the cloud-readiness of your applications and don’t take the necessary steps before migrating.

  2. You have an incomplete picture of what your migration plan should include and end up running into unexpected hitches and delays.

Our battle-tested process will get you to the cloud with minimal disruption to your organization and to your customers.
