Rackspace Private Cloud Powered by VMware Now Runs VMware SDDC Technologies
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Oct. 20 -- On Tuesday, Rackspace (NYSE: RAX) officially launched early access of VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) on Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware, following the company's initial announcement from VMworld Las Vegas.
This single-tenant private cloud enables customers to conveniently transition or extend their on-premises VMware workloads into a hosted VMware environment at Rackspace and eases hybrid cloud adoption by utilizing the same VMware virtualization and software-defined technology that customers use in their datacenters.

- Reduced complexity
