This week we hear from Performance Cloud Servers customers, get Cloud Databases monitoring in the Control Panel, break up with an online store and much more.
“Big Data” is one of the biggest buzzwords in the technology industry today – you can’t read the tech press or look at social media without seeing it. But what do we mean by Big Data, and what’s wrong with our old friend “little data” that has served us well for 30 odd years.
When you travel from city to city, it’s always nice to find out about local attractions, happenings or cool places to visit. What if you could turn your smartphone into your own personal tour guide in the cities you visit?
Since releasing Performance Cloud Servers late last year, we’ve been thrilled by the response from customers. We knew that enhancing speed, throughput, reliability and scalability would be embraced, but it’s still heartening to hear about the measurable impact directly from customers. Fanatical Support as a high-performing type of service was also a common theme in these customer stories.
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. We recently posted about the Rackspace response to this event, but while security is top-of-mind we’d like to share a new white paper on the topic of “Cloud Security in an Agile World.”
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. But using third-party instant messaging that does not integrate with your Outlook and Exchange can be cumbersome and a waste of valuable time and resources. This is where Hosted Lync by Rackspace can help.
As OpenStack Summit Atlanta fast approaches, we wanted to dig deeper into the past, present and future of OpenStack. In this video series, we hear straight from some of OpenStack’s top contributors from Rackspace about how the fast-growing open source project has evolved, what it needs to continue thriving, what it means to them personally, and why they are active contributors.
It’s been a week since we all learned about the Heartbleed OpenSSL bug, and our Rackspace server security and administration specialists have been busy proactively patching the vulnerability for our customers.
