When startups receive huge traffic to their production environments it is a good sign of growth, however, there are downsides to this, especially with mission-critical data security. Dedicated servers can convey improved security benefits for your business-basic applications, yet this is of little use for applications with short time frames of realistic usability. Applications with variable traffic and demand are not suitable for dedicated servers, and getting universal solutions for every case is practically impossible. Businesses have different sets of requirements for several different types of applications. The remedy to this is with the hybrid cloud.
Rackspace hybrid cloud is a complete approach to the usage of IT. It is all about matching the right action with the right job. Public cloud, private cloud, and dedicated servers are consolidated seamlessly to form the correct platform. The hybrid cloud reduces the list of trade-offs you have to make and technical barriers, so you get the best benefit and improved performance from each cloud component. TechForing help you architect and deploy hybrid cloud architectures for your infrastructures.
In addition to these offerings, if you are a start-up, Rackspace offers up to $2,000 per month in free hosting for 12 months *for qualified startups. 24*7*365 fanatical support is one of the USPs offered by Rackspace.

Can’t recommend enough.
A very good experience. This was a very sensitive project for our company and we feel very fortunate to have found TechForing. They did an amazing optimization job. They mainly helped us with AWS, LEMP and iMobiTrax.
