I have been trying to find a phone number for Customer Support for 2 days, I finally found one, they answered and transferred me to Customer Support, I have been on hold for 1 hour and 18 minutes already...and counting! You have an option to leave your number so they can call you back, but when you leave the number, it tells you that it is incorrect, that I need the country code, area code, and number, which I did 3 times and kept getting the same message. I have been with Rackspace for 15 years, I guess it is time to change companies!
After being with Rackspace for 15 years our company was by Rackspace stated “hacked via ransomeware” we were never a witness to this but in December of 2022 our systems went down. At the time we had 2 dozen companies on a guaranteed Exchange account that we were charged by Rackspace a $150 a month for our reseller agreement. After the system was down for days we were offered a last minute deal to transfer all our accounts to Microsoft directly to handle an immediate recovery. We were told that we would be charged “$0” for this until the system was restored completely.
After the months of recovery, we were told we could have Rackspace and Microsoft install Microsoft Office suite with the Microsoft to resolve the current issues. They ended up added hundreds of accounts to our system and then informed us 2 months later that we now owe Rackspace almost $3500 a month. After dozens of calls and emails to Rackspace they closed our all our email accounts for the dozens of companies that we manage.
Because of the lack of support and their inability to correct the issue and to not upgrade our account or migrate them correctly. We waited months with limited communications, the accounts that were affected and then Rackspace shut down our accounts again. During this time I migrated all our accounts and closed all accounts except for the main account because I was still waiting for backup. We did not use or create email accounts with those licenses. I reached out to customer support again, I've followed up with support monthly and being told that I need to pay an insane fee to correct the account and no one ever did. I was finally contacted by the CFO of Rackspace after several emails... and was informed that the mistake was made by them and would be corrected immediately.
After all the mixups, and finally getting through to the CFO of Rackspace I was promised that Rackspace would pay our company $3323.33 and provide us an apology. “now I’m getting back from Rackspace that there is no money to be paid our company and no apology for their inability to manage or mismanage all of our accounts!” At this point I would like to give Rackspace a huge “F” for Service and Support.
I as A Microsoft Certified System Engineer, and a Cisco Certified Network Professional know Rackspace used to be a creditable source for hosting by reputable companies, but now am so disappointed to say that is definitely not the case any more. I highly encourage all companies and individuals to avoid Rackspace at all cost for any reason or project and if you’re currently using Rackspace I recommend that you start looking into changing hosting solutions.
Moving to Rackspace cost us $7500 more than staying with AWS and all of that cost should have been prevented by the services we bought from them. However, when we asked for assistance it took them 6 months and dozens of calls to diagnose and find the cause which was something they should have reviewed as a part of the service we contracted for. Their negligence in oversight and lack of customer service cost us thousands and they refused to take any responsibility for their part even though they could see the long delays in response time. Do NOT switch from AWS to Rackspace!
Total system failure 3 days ago. No resolution. No support. If you do get a call back it is in the middle of the night and all they do is read the same "instructions" from the website that do not work. At all. Avoid at all cost because it will cost you.
Dec 22, Exchange servers all compromised, ZERO transparency to customers after 48 hours, no data, no email, no communication. I would never trust them again after 10 years. Once a company goes public, it's all about the bottom line, not service and support, which you expect from a tech company.
It's literally a 50/50 shot that you'll receive emails or your clients will receive emails you've sent. Half the time it doesn't even kick back saying it hasn't been sent. You're left in the dark... clients getting pissed thinking you're not on the ball. I would trust Bill Cosby alone with my daughter if I had one before I would trust rackspace to deliver an email. HORRIBLE!!!!!
