With the 11th release of OpenStack out the door, another OpenStack Summit is underway in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.

This weekend, 140 Rackers will be heading out to the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver. We’ll be participating in many different sessions about many different topics.
As I plan my schedule for my tenth OpenStack Summit, I’ve been reflecting on what I’ve learned in four and a half years of building a community doc team from scratch.

But existing technology solutions often consist of cobbled together tools that create compatibility, security and performance issues. Google Apps for Work delivers a complete suite of email, productivity and communication tools, but it can also create more work for IT as they deploy and maintain this suite.
Today, Rackspace announced support new Hadoop ecosystem tools that allow for exciting connectivity between traditional relational databases and data platforms like popular big data services like Rackspace Cloud Big Data.
