Rackspace Hosting^® (NYSE: RAX), the open cloud company, today announced a new offering for its Rackspace® Managed Virtualization service, Dedicated VMware (NYSE: VMW) vCenter Server, that will provide managed support for single-tenant VMware vCenter Servers. With Dedicated VMware vCenter Server, enterprise customers can migrate existing VMware workloads out of their on-premise data center into a Rackspace data center, while leveraging existing tools to maintain the control and agility they require.

The Rackspace hosted VMware environment will look and feel like an extension of the customer's own data center by leveraging the same vCenter APIs utilized by their existing tools. Specifically, customers maintain control and management capabilities through the use of dedicated vCenter Servers, vCenter APIs, compatible third-party tools, and their existing service catalogs, orchestration platforms and portals. Customers can utilize their familiar orchestration tools to conveniently provision virtual machines (VMs) in minutes, while providing visibility into costs and usage whether on- or off-premise through a single user interface.

Rackspace hosts one of the largest VMware environments and operates the largest OpenStack-based cloud.
