Large and small enterprises can greatly benefit from the cloud to support their innovative and competitive needs. RapidScale’s CloudEnterprise solution can help enterprises of all sizes maintain multiple business units and remote offices, and stay productive, connected, and innovative at all times.
Enhancing the Enterprise with Managed Cloud Solutions
Enterprises often have employees working remotely or in offices spread across multiple locations. It can be difficult for enterprises to bring people together across multiple locations to share important information and keep everyone up to date on company business. A lack of communication between company divisions can lower efficiency levels and leave room for mistakes.
Maintaining and upgrading hardware and software for an entire company can be extremely costly, especially for small or growing enterprises. Enterprises need to constantly pay to upgrade to the newest technology, and employ a dedicated IT staff to keep infrastructure up and running at all times. These expenses can take a huge toll on a growing enterprise.
Ability to Grow
Small and growing enterprises need to have the freedom to grow at the pace they want. Inflexible, expensive technology prevents enterprises from being able to add new users and support bigger data when the time comes. These restrictions can inhibit an enterprise’s critical growth stage.
Loss of company information due to failed technology or a natural disaster can be devastating for a growing enterprise. Companies who maintain an in-house infrastructure are at risk of critical data loss in the event of a disaster or virus. Reliable security is crucial for keeping businesses up and running during the period they are growing the most.
In short, the cloud makes everything a whole lot easier. The cloud takes away the need to constantly buy and configure new hardware and software, and automates the application purchasing process. With these important processes simplified through CloudEnterprise, you will be able to save time and money and focus on building new business opportunities.
Many big businesses have employees spread across multiple offices in different locations. With the cloud, your employees will be able to communicate and share files and applications anywhere, using any device. The cloud makes employee integration a seamless process and provides a stable platform for everyone to access the information they need to do their job, boosting efficiency across every company sector.
Utilizing CloudEnterprise can help your business expand. RapidScale lets you easily scale the amount of storage you currently have in the cloud up or down. You can add more computing resources and data storage to support the growth of your business without having to pay for more than what you need. The cloud ensures you will be able to meet the needs and expectations of your clients without experiencing crashing or unreliable servers.
The cloud promotes greater optimization of IT resources and greatly reduces capital expenses and operating costs. Instead of building for maximum capacity, you can purchase cloud space with RapidScale’s pay-as-you-go model to meet your specific storage needs. CloudEnterprise also automates IT resources to reduce the amount of time and effort needed to maintain infrastructure, saving you a ton of money along the way.
CloudApps simplifies application purchasing and license management for your business. RapidScale offers some of the most commonly used business apps, and also allows you to integrate your existing applications into the cloud. We can support 97% of business applications on the market, including:

Individuals and small businesses have been quick to board the cloud computing train. Enterprises, on the other hand, have lagged a bit behind. This is due to many reasons, one major one being security concerns. There is also the barrier that a lot of companies simply don’t value enterprise application development, which can also hinder growth and cloud adoption.
However, it seems that big businesses are finally finding their way to the cloud. A recent study by Washington, D.C. research firm, Clutch, showed that 90% of enterprises are planning to increase their cloud spend in the coming year.
Implementing cloud computing doesn’t have to mean conducting a complete overhaul. The point of cloud technology is that enterprises can apply it where it works best for them. Many start with small steps and then pick up speed as they gain greater confidence in the technology.

The amount of detail Gary provided me, as well as his responsiveness, was far beyond anything we had with our last vendor. The efficiency of your RFC process is a breath of fresh air! I’m also extremely satisfied with the RapidScale support team as a whole in regards to their proficiency, sense of urgency and etiquette.
I checked out some new partner resources – great stuff. We are already getting some good traction here. You guys really offer some great support!!
After being introduced to RapidScale at an event, I cannot help but be more impressed each time I hear more. I attended a webinar too, and once again, I’m really impressed with the opportunities. When I looked in your Partner Portal for the first time I thought, “Wow was I crazy for not looking sooner!” Great stuff in there.
Austin was amazing, professional, knowledgeable and personable – a true star!
I appreciate Steven’s quick response time and friendly demeanor when discussing problems. Great service and follow up!
RapidScale has been by far better than [our previous provider]. Our team is so much happier!
Our timing satisfaction rating reflects that these were carry-over issues from our prior vendor, but we’re pleased with RapidScale, and Steven’s thoroughness in reviewing and handling through to resolution.
I have been thrilled with RapidScale, I love the fact that when I call to initiate a ticket the technicians answer the phone. With [our last provider], we left a message then had to wait for a technician to call back. Sometimes this could take days! Thank you, I am really happy with your services.
Sent a ticket for a server being unresponsive and received a call within a few minutes. Great response and resolution.
I believe the technician’s name was David. He was very pro-active on a Saturday. Got the issue resolved quickly. High marks.
Thanks for the quick response and resolution! And I appreciate the fact that the tech gave information about what the problem was, how it was fixed, etc. That is always better than a simple “it’s now fixed”.
The level of service that we have received from RapidScale has been completely awesome. All of our IT team and the owner has commented on it. You guys are doing a fantastic job!
It’s been great so far having RapidScale host our email. We had it in-house before and that was just may more trouble than it was worth.
We’ve been extremely pleased with the service and customer support RapidScale has provided us. We don’t have a large IT staff and so the ability to lean on them has been perfect.
We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy.
Working with RapidScale has been great so far. Our organization had a lot of our servers in-house and it was such a pain. It’s 1,000 times better now that we moved it all to the cloud.
RapidScale quite literally re-invented our IT situation. It was a complete mess before and we are absolutely THRILLED with everything that they’ve helped us to accomplish. Our network runs smoother and our virtual environments are the best addition we’ve made in a very long time.
The whole “cloud” thing was incredibly daunting when we first started exploring it for our business. We didn’t really understand the way everything worked and how it was going to help us get past some of the technology speed bumps we had. I worked with the RapidScale sales team and they were really very helpful and made me completely comfortable with the solution. We’ve been running on the CloudOffice interface for about 4 months now and are 100% satisfied and so happy we made the choice to move to RapidScale.
RapidScale helped to not only significantly lower our costs, but to help make our work environment more productive as well as more reliable and stable.
I LOVE THIS TECHNOLOGY. I am so excited to be in this new phase within our organization. As a proud partner of RapidScale, this week alone I’ve dealt with 3 major consultations in Colorado with hundreds of employees each! This technology is truly exciting stuff. They make the process so easy, from training, to quoting, to installation! I LOVE HOW EASY THAT WAS. Amazing. You all ROCK!
