AN ANTONIO, TX: Hosting specialist Racksapce has announced its strategic partnership with Cloud Technology Partners (CTP) in order to provide enterprises the access to popular cloud platforms with professional and managed services. The partnership would also see Rackspace join CTP’s Board of Directors and invest in CTP's Series C funding round.

CTP provides professional services and software for enterprises moving to leading cloud platforms. From strategy to operations, CTP accelerates end-to-end cloud adoption with the best implementation services, software and intellectual property available on the market.

Combining with CTP’s highly rated services, Rackspace’s Fanatical Support cloud suite provides enterprises with a comprehensive solution for cloud adoption by addressing various issues. These issues include cloud strategy and economics, security and governance, application portfolio assessment, application modernization, migration and development, DevOps and automation and Ongoing cloud operations and managed services.

Most enterprises, while integrating with the cloud, undergo complex transformation efforts which would require stage solutions, incorporating distinct platforms and technology options. This partnership with their combined extensive knowledge in cloud hosting is expected to provide an ideal solution for enterprises facing such problems.

"We are seeing increasing demand from enterprises that are seeking help moving to AWS and Azure, and then successfully managing their environments once deployed," says Taylor Rhodes, CEO, Rackspace. 

"Working with Rackspace was an obvious fit based on their managed cloud leadership and our shared emphasis on supporting customers through every phase of their cloud journey," said Chris Greendale, CEO, Cloud Technology Partners. "Our prescriptive approach to public cloud adoption has been hugely successful for enterprise customers."
