Rackspace and Microsoft tools gets cosy with cloud suite platform.
Rackspace has created a business unit called Cloud Office which aims to unify its portfolio of Rackspace and Microsoft business productivity and collaboration tools.
The suite of solutions available under Cloud Office at Rackspace includes hosted Microsoft Exchange and Rackspace Email, Microsoft Lync and Microsoft SharePoint collaboration tools and Jungle Disk backup services, all backed by Fanatical Support.
"We’ve combined the power and expertise of Rackers, who understand that each customer has unique needs in their work environment, with a broad selection of productivity tools to help customers manage and run their business in a way that meets their specific needs," said Bret Piatt, general manager of Cloud Office at Rackspace.
"We are proud to deliver this IT productivity suite as a service to exciting new companies as well as established brand names including Star Network Services, Jordan Lawrence and 42 Inc."
The announcement comes weeks after Rackspace announced it will be offering managed IT services for the full Google Apps for Work suite.
