Infotech Lead America: Rackspace Hosting has extended Critical Application Services to the open cloud and support for Adobe CQ web content management customers.

Critical Application Services enables enterprises to focus on their core business while Rackspace keeps their apps running.

Rackspace uses a combination of web-scale engineers, on-going consultation, and performance monitoring through a CA Technologies application performance management solution. Rackspace tailors every environment to the customer’s needs.

Critical Application Services provides a holistic view across the end user’s application and infrastructure environment. This allows customers to proactively analyze and optimize performance and improve the user experience.

“After listening to our customers describe their IT needs, we have extended Critical Application Services to the open cloud and support for Adobe CQ which raises the level of maintenance to the application layer,” said Robert Fuller, VP of Global Enterprise Solutions at Rackspace.

“By hiring us to provide support at the application layer, a customer can leverage Rackspace expertise to efficiently monitor and optimize infrastructure performance. This allows our partners and customers to focus on their core businesses,” Fuller added.
