Introduction My last post talked about the benefits of Object Storage today. My next few posts will talk about the future direction of Object Storage technology, and the upcoming features that you should be aware of. Today, I will talk about Erasure Coding.

In my position as a Launch Manager on our Cloud Launch Team, I speak everyday with customers who are bringing an application over to Rackspace from another hosting provider. Whether it’s a WordPress blog, a Magento eCommerce site, or a custom-built mobile app, my fellow Launch Managers and I work with our customers to provide a smooth transition from one provider to another. Today, I’ll outline five questions you should ask before starting a migration to Rackspace (or any other hosting provider). I will also be hanging out at 1 p.m. CDT  Thursday, April 24 with other Rackers to discuss these questions in more detail. Join us on Google+ to Hangout, or watch the embedded video below.

Email routinely contains confidential and proprietary information both to your business and to individual users. It’s likely there is information about your business plans, financial projections and human resource data residing in a string of emails. How can you make sure this information remains private and only accessible to the intended recipients? Can you risk hours or even days of email downtime due to a virus that employees unknowingly spread?
As OpenStack Summit Atlanta fast approaches, we wanted to dig deeper into the past, present and future of OpenStack.

Think of the last time you made an online purchase.
Strategising for spikes in your online business is really important yet, astonishingly, many organizations are still not doing it effectively. I believe that ineffective preparation for online spikes is inexcusable with the technology available today.
