What is Civo? Built for speed and simplicity, with k3s under the hood. It is a community-driven cloud platform, with all the features a developer could need. If you want it, we'll build it – your vision shapes what we deliver.
Rackspace Cloud Servers and Civo can be categorized as "Cloud Hosting" tools.
Some of the features offered by Rackspace Cloud Servers are:
- 100% power and network uptime guarantee
- Cloud choice- We run the world’s largest open cloud, giving you flexibility, choice, and no vendor lock-in. That means your workloads are portable. Host them with any open cloud vendor—or even in your own data center.

Most bioinformatics shops nowadays are hosting on AWS or Azure, since they have HIPAA tiers and offer enterprise SLA contracts. Meanwhile Heroku hasn't historically supported HIPAA. Rackspace and Google Cloud would be other hosting providers we would consider, but we just don't get requests for them. So, we mostly focus on AWS and Azure support.
