Rackspace, the cloud computing provider this week announced a strategic relationship with Google Cloud to become its first managed services support partner for the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Google also announced that the companies will be collaborating on a new managed services offering for Google Cloud Platform customers which will launch later this year.

By providing Fanatical Support for Google Cloud, we will be able to help deliver value to joint customers and help them meet their evolving business needs.
Rackspace says that the managed support services will offer GCP customers added cloud architecture support, onboarding, data migration expertise, as well as ongoing operational support for customers, to help ensure optimal cloud application performance.

Rackspace’s commitment to providing results-obsessed customer service mirrors Google’s commitment to customer support.
We’re working with Rackspace to extend on-call engineering support to our shared customers. Rackspace already has Google Certified Professionals on staff, and we will continue to work together to roll out managed services for GCP.
