If you’ve ever wanted to host your own WordPress blog or learn more about the world’s most popular CMS, you’re in good company. By most counts, WordPress sites make up almost a quarter of all websites. Amongst CMS based sites, WordPress accounts for about 60 percent of the sites. Last week Rackspace was happy to announce a brand new CloudU WordPress learning series. This free course combines written and video instruction with a 30-day free trial of Rackspace Cloud Sites to give a hands on practical look at hosting your own WordPress sites.
Here at Rackspace, we have a strong commitment to open source software and communities, in particular open source databases. One such technology is Redis, which has seen a lot of growth since its inception in 2009. During the past six years, the community has grown to over 150 contributors with almost 5,000 code releases.
Rackspace Technical Product Manager and SharePoint MVP John Ross recently interviewed with TechnologyAdvice with a pretty clear prediction about cloud-based services in 2015. John and five of his Rackspace coworkers will be presenting classes at this year’s SPTechCon in Austin, TX, from February 8-11. As SharePoint specialists, they will offer practical information on how businesses can make the best use of the cloud-based service, SharePoint. Listen to the interview here.
In continuation of our New Year’s Resolution for IT series, we’d like to offer up a more in-depth look into our second resolution: “Becoming a Service Provider to the Business.” Many of you may already be on your own journey to adopting a service provider model. This post and the January 28th webinar are designed to take a deeper dive into this strategic transformation.

When a team knows how to collaborate well, it’s no accident. The chemistry needed for effective teamwork can be months, or even years, in the making. And that’s for people who work in the same office every day.
The New Year begins with a fresh start and new ideas. If you happen to be working on a new application—or are redesigning one that you have in production—you may want to consider architecting your app to run on the cloud. To assist you with this, Rackers BK Box, Caleb Groom and Ryan Walker authored a white paper titled “Cloud Application Architecture Trends.” We invited them to our weekly Cloud Office Hours Hangout to discuss their paper and dive a little deeper into these trends. I’ve included a link to the full video at the end of this post, but here are a few highlights from the show:
Your data footprint is getting larger. From documents and contracts to family photos and beloved songs, your data and files are important pieces of your life – both business and personal.

Each year Cloud Office teams strategize on how to provide the best services and products for our customers worldwide. The execution of those strategies in 2014 resulted in a mega year for Cloud Office and our customers alike.
