Rackspace Hosting has expanded its portfolio of cloud applications with the addition of collaboration and file sharing platform hosted Microsoft SharePoint, backed by Rackspace’s support services.

The company said that the new offering includes a control panel that allows administrators to initiate SharePoint, add/remove users and create SharePoint sites with a few steps. The control panel also gives administrators the ability to manage Rackspace Email & Apps’ full suite of applications, including hosted Microsoft Exchange, Rackspace Email, Email Archiving and Rackspace Cloud Drive and Server Backup, in one dashboard.

Pat Matthews, general manager of Rackspace Email & Apps, said: “With SharePoint, Rackspace is offering businesses the most powerful file sharing and collaboration software on the market today. With our cloud delivery model, businesses can take advantage of all the power Microsoft SharePoint has to offer without the hassle of having to manage the software in-house. Microsoft SharePoint backed by fanatical support is the recipe our customers have been asking for.”

With SharePoint, employees can become better equipped to collaborate on projects and share ideas across the organisation, with a centralised place to store, organise and access documents.
