Rackspace has been included in the Leader’s Quadrant in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Managed Service Providers, Worldwide.

Rackspace was one of 20 public cloud managed service providers assessed for the report, which assesses companies based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute that vision. The report categorizes companies as niche players, contenders, visionaries, and leaders. Companies in the Leaders Quadrant scored highly for both completeness of vision and ability to execute. In this year’s magic Quadrant, only three providers were named as leaders.

This is the second consecutive year that Rackspace has been included in the Leaders Quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Managed Service Providers, Worldwide, which the company puts down to the depth of its portfolio and its expertise in delivering next-generation IT services.

“Businesses within every industry are moving to consume IT in a more-agile and cost-efficient manner, as a service, across multiple public and private cloud platforms and technologies. We are constantly adding new capabilities to help businesses navigate and operate in this complex environment.” Said Joe Eazor, CEO of Rackspace.

The company first started offering managed cloud services for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure in 2015, with its portfolio expanding to include Alibaba Cloud and the Google Cloud Platform in 2017. Rackspace was the first company to offer managed services for GCP and the first GCP partner to provide Customer Reliability Engineering (CRE) Support. The company now has more than 1,100 customers across the four cloud platforms.

In addition to helping customers choose the best public cloud platform to meet their technical and business needs, the company’s cloud experts help customers rapidly migrate their applications to the public cloud and ensure continuing high performance at the lowest cost to maximize their return on investment.
