Most IT professionals would agree that 2014 was a long year. Heartbleed, Shellshock, Sandworm and POODLE were just a subset of the vulnerabilities that caused many of us to stay up late and reach for more coffee. As these vulnerabilities became public, I found myself fielding questions from non-technical family members after they watched the CBS Evening News and wondered what was happening. Security is now part of the popular discussion.
On March 5 in San Francisco, Rackspace hosted our Redis Conference. Our goal was to gather the best and brightest in the Redis community and build better collaboration between app developers, database administrators and Redis to Go practitioners. Our featured speaker was Salvatore Sanfilippo, an open source software developer at Pivotal who’s best known as the creator of Redis. The transcript from this interview is included below.
“Who is going to manage your cloud?”
In November we had announced the Limited Availability of Neutron API, making it easier for Rackspace Cloud users to build rich network services and laying the foundation for a number of immediate and future network services.
As most entrepreneurs know, boostrapping can be a tricky path—especially when the founding team isn’t flush with cash. At Maptiv8, which transforms big data into beautiful UX, we know the realities of bootstrapping all too well. But over the past three years of our bootstrapped journey, Maptiv8 has scaled its operations, kept its team lean and pivoted towards larger markets—all thanks to the Rackspace Startup Program.
Cloud computing, dominated only a few years ago by software developers and other early adopters, is now moving solidly into the mainstream of global business. Organizations of all sizes and maturity levels are using cloud solutions to host a broad variety of applications and workflows, from ecommerce to data analysis. How can this huge new wave of customers best leverage the power of the cloud? How are those newest customers changing the cloud?
In real estate, it’s no longer just about location, location, location.
Rackspace Open Cloud customers have consistently asked us for the ability to secure their cloud footprint without having to wrestle with complex security policies on individual cloud servers. The larger their fleet of Cloud Servers, the more useful it would be to have centralized control of security policies that could ease management overhead in a multi-tier deployment.

Rackspace Cloud Monitoring notifies you the moment it detects an issue in your systems. But in certain situations, such as a scheduled maintenance period, you may not actually want these notifications. For example, if you are conducting a scheduled backup, you would plan on downgraded system performance, making any notification sent from Cloud Monitoring non-actionable.
