Rackspace Review

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Excellent customer service - Their support teams respond quickly.
  • Simplified migration services, limiting downtime.
  • Fantastic communication - They keep you appraised to any situations that may arise, whether it's day-to-day business or a change in service.
  • Ticket system - For the most part, it's fine, but you have to log in to see the ticket/case messages. The email notification only lets you know you have a message.
  • Login speed - It takes a bit longer than what most users would like to login to the admin panel.
  • Clicks to control panel - The default screen is the ticket screen. I would prefer the home page immediately include a method to get to my admin tools beyond ticket creation.

  • Amazing support, who are available in moments via Chat.
  • Has easy upgrades and downgrades between plans.
  • Fair pricing (you get what you pay for).
  • During a couple of planned upgrades, the timeline was a bit ambiguous.

RS Cloud Monitoring Notify problems in real time

Score 9 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Immediate email notifications: In case a service is down on our servers, we get immediate email notifications via Rackspace cloud monitoring service. This helps us to know about the issues and we get in contact with support team to get it resolved.
  • Configuration on specific services: We can configure this monitoring on specific services. So for example if i don't want to get notified if MySQL concurrent users limit reached, then I do not need to configure this monitoring for MySQL. I can just use it whenever needed for defined services.
  • Group emails and technical contacts emails: The monitoring service can send email alerts to a number of email addresses. Primarily the ones who are added as a technical contact. It helps all people get notified about any issue.
  • Auto ticket management: Rackspace automatically creates a support ticket when a service is down and is notified by their monitoring service.
  • Text messages: Rackspace monitoring sends email notifications, but if they can send an SMS or text message or even call our phone when a service is down, that would be great.
