For the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) our awards season is where we shine. The camera flashes, the glitz, the glamour, the red carpet. And film and television lovers across the UK flood to our site to see who’s nominated, who won and to get more details on the awards. 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,
EDITOR’S NOTE: This information was updated on April 14, 2014.
This week we helped our customers battle the “Heartbleed” vulnerability, highlighted our plans for ChefConf 2014, discussed why we craft OpenStack and much more. Here we look at what we showcased this week.
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?
Part of our Fanatical Support promise is to ensure the security and health of your systems. It is of the utmost importance to us. So when the entire Linux Community, including Rackspace, was notified yesterday of the “Heartbleed” vulnerability within OpenSSL (CVE-2014-0160), the encryption software found in many Linux systems, we began plans to proactively patch your affected servers where we could.
The Good Old Days, Then Came Cloud Pre-cloud and Pre-DevOps, things were much simpler. Sys Admins had a clearly defined role. If your boss was upset that the application was slow, you’d log into the server, check top, memory consumption, narrow it down per process, maybe run an strace, and continue troubleshooting until you hopefully discovered the cause.
Rackspace and our team of DevOps Automation specialists are headed to San Francisco next week for ChefConf 2014! Be sure to drop by booth #126 to find out more about our DevOps Automation Service and managed support for DevOps tools to help automate the process of deploying and scaling applications.
