Introduction In my previous blog post on Object Storage, I provided an overview of what Object Storage is, and how it compares to conventional storage platforms. In this post, I will discuss what benefits Object Storage can provide for you today.  As there are a variety of solutions to choose from, each offering different pros, cons and price-points, I will focus on OpenStack Swift, the open-source Object Storage component of OpenStack, as it is vendor-agnostic and freely available to everyone.
Cloud Databases instances are already preconfigured with a default set of metrics, including CPU, memory, disk usage, average load, network and MySQL specific metrics. You can monitor both real-time statistics and historical trends in usage using our API and our CLI. However, you have told us that you want that capability with a friendly user interface too. Today we extend monitoring of Cloud Databases into our Control Panel.
Recent activity with the Heartbleed vulnerability has the industry reeling and re-evaluating their security controls.

It’s estimated that 80 percent to 90 percent of businesses use some type of instant messaging to connect and collaborate with colleagues and customers.

Our websites need to perform their best to accommodate these traffic spikes.
“OpenStack is on the cusp of major adoption.”  How many times have you heard a vendor or analyst say that or some variation of it in the past 12 months?
Hello Website Owner,
Clayton Selby and his team started SocialREST in fall 2012 at a startup event at Geekdom, a collaborative workspace for technologist in San Antonio. They built a tool that aims to close the referral loop on social media. SocialREST uses conversion metrics information to tell the difference between posts that are simply driving up vanity metrics and those posts that are driving conversions. It uses valuable customer insights to determine which users are the top brand advocates and which are the most engaged influencers.
We’ve grown accustomed to email just working. It’s there when we need it. But what happens when it’s time to send that $1 million proposal that could take your business to the next level, and your email is down?
