As promised last year, we are committed to simplifying database management with Rackspace Cloud Databases. Starting today you can customize configuration settings for Cloud Databases instances using the API or Trove command line tool. This capability allows you to optimize configuration settings based on the needs of your workload.
Just 13 months after we acquired industrial strength MongoDB Data-as-a-Service ObjectRocket, the service is now available in our Hong Kong data center. This follows the launch of ObjectRocket in the UK earlier this year.

While it may be difficult to predict the weather, predicting how the weather impacts consumer purchases is becoming easier.

After attending SXSW Interactive for the past two years, I’ve noticed the industry seems to be shifting away from the Age of the Apps to the Dawn of Data. Rather than focusing on that next killer application, it appears that more people are trying to tap into the data that is being gathered to create the next big thing—and companies are actively encouraging developers to do so.
Like the universe itself, Big Data is expanding. And as with space exploration, the more technology we point at data, the more we discover.
Data is growing and evolving in ways that legacy architects could not have imagined. We are seeing a shift from systems of record that are highly autonomous and rigorously constructed to make sure every piece of data is processed in-tact to data platforms that throw caution to the wind in exchange for performance and scalability. As data evolves and becomes more complex it begs the question, “What type of relationship are you seeking with your database?”
