The four solution areas, which are focused on cloud optimisation, security, cloud native enablement and data modernisation, bring to market the company’s significant multi-cloud expertise under the new name Rackspace Technology.

These efforts are a culmination of the company’s massive transformation over the past year, led by CEO Kevin Jones.

“Our technical acumen with the world’s leading cloud technologies – across apps, data and security – empowers our customers to build new revenue streams, increase efficiency, and create incredible experiences,” said Kevin Jones, CEO, Rackspace Technology. “Our new name, mission and multi-cloud solutions better represent the full value we bring to market. Our mission is simple. Embrace technology. Empower customers. ​Deliver the future.”

Rackspace Technology’s new multi-cloud solutions empower customers to address this challenge and meet new demands. The new solutions provide customers with the following benefits:

  • Cloud Optimisation empowers customers to improve costs and performance for a changing market while delivering the experience their end customers demand.
  • Cloud Security provides customers with expert security and compliance services for the enterprise and the cloud.
  • Cloud Native Enablement accelerates multicloud transformation with cloud native application, data, and security built-in a DevOps culture.
  • Data Modernisation helps customers make predictive, data-driven decisions that accelerate innovation and increase ROI leveraging modern data analytics.

“Our first year of savings with Rackspace was in the 40-45 percent range versus our historical run costs. As we’ve continued to optimise, our second and third year of savings will be more than 60%,” said Scott Strickland, EVP & CIO, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Rackspace has been a tremendous partner, and their strategic shift to double down on new multicloud solutions addresses our long-term business needs.”
