Managed Services for Google Cloud Platform
Product Guide

Service Levels

Rackspace Managed Services for Google Cloud Platform combines tooling and automation with human experts to deliver a world-class experience. We offer two service levels, Runway and Aviator, which are selected for each GCP project we support.

  • Runway: “I want access to Rackspace tooling, the ability to request on-demand support for a fee, and will manage my GCP project myself.”
  • Aviator: “I want Rackspace to operate and manage my GCP project for me or with me.”

For details on what is included in each service level, including details on levels of support for each GCP service, download our Rackspace Managed Services for Google Cloud Platform Service Overview.

Aviator Response Time SLAs

Rackspace will respond to your Aviator support requests submitted to us via ticket in the following timeframes. For Aviator projects, all requests should be made directly to Rackspace and we will escalate to Google directly, if needed.

If at any time you need to escalate a Support request on your account, please contact us.
