RapidScale provides the most cost-effective solution in the SMB market with our pay-as-you-go model, giving your small business the opportunity to scale up or down at your own pace. RapidScale’s state-of-the-art cloud technology will put your business on the same playing field as large corporations while keeping your costs as low as possible.
Enhancing the SMB with Managed Cloud Solutions
The most important consideration for every decision in a small- to medium-sized business is cost. SMBs have to consider the most cost-effective solutions when dealing with problems, growth, and changing technology.
Equipment and maintenance support teams are costly expenses that many small businesses struggle to maintain. Infrastructure can become obsolete, forcing small businesses to invest in new, costly technology to keep up with growing business.
Security and DR
Loss of company information due to failed technology or a natural disaster can be devastating for a small business. 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.
Efficient IT Strategy
In-house IT departments can be costly to maintain. Many SMBs do not have dedicated IT departments to ensure the right technology choices are being made. SMBs can feel pressured to invest in on-premises IT departments to maintain smooth operations, sacrificing a lot of money.
RapidScale has three data center backup facilities located across the country, assuring your business experiences the least possible downtime during a crisis or natural disaster. The cloud also protects against viruses that plague personal computers. RapidScale offers around-the-clock IT support to answer any questions or concerns. With CloudSMB, you can focus on running your business instead of sweating the small stuff.
RapidScale’s mobile cloud solutions offer SMBs the opportunity to increase productivity and respond better to business opportunities and customer demands. It also gives employees the chance to work remotely and access work information from any device at any time, greatly improving collaboration and communication across every sector of the company.
RapidScale’s cloud services will put your small business on the same playing field as large corporations. Our state-of-the-art cloud technology won’t become obsolete. RapidScale helps business smoothly integrate their existing applications and services into the cloud, guaranteeing no time is lost during the transition to new technology.
RapidScale’s Cloud for Small Business technology does not get viruses, slow down over time, or require IT upkeep maintenance. This reduces your company’s fixed costs and eliminates the need to constantly update your equipment with new technology. RapidScale’s pay-as-you-go model lets you scale your services up or down as needed, saving you big money.
After migrating to the cloud, your costs will reflect only the services you need to make your business thrive.

Cloud computing can probably make the biggest impact in the SMB segment. Why? Because traditionally, these businesses haven’t been able to afford the same services and resources that large companies use, limiting their capabilities. It was often impossible to be even remotely competitive with a large organization, but luckily that has changed. Now, thanks to the cloud, businesses of all sizes can take advantage of world-class solutions, accessing infrastructure and software that was previously out of reach.
Rather than focusing on balancing a budget, small businesses can focus on business strategy and development.
SMBs play a huge role in the growth of the cloud market. One third of SMB IT budgets are already allocated to cloud and managed services, and according to Emergent Research, 78% of small businesses will be fully adapted to the cloud by 2020.
See What our Customers are Saying
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!
