This is huge. Really huge. If someone told me four years ago that OpenStack would be where it is today – just a mere four years in – I would’ve shrugged my shoulders and said “maybe, we’ll see.”
Rackspace processes over a million metrics every minute as we monitor the IT infrastructure of hundreds of thousands of customers. That’s a lot of data.

Negotiation between legal parties has historically been a process dominated by uncertainty, guessing games and anxiety. However, today’s professionals can make strategic decisions based on deep data and predictive analytics to improve conventional wisdom and to correct cognitive errors in judgment.
Fifteen years ago, when scores of companies rented out access to single-tenant servers with little or no support, we at Rackspace created the managed hosting business. We started by answering the phone when customers called. We began delivering Fanatical Support. We sharpened our expertise in Linux and Windows system administration, and network security. We took the burden of managing complex systems off of our customers’ shoulders. It’s what set us apart from the pack. We became managed hosting specialists.
For many organizations, Microsoft SharePoint is a dynamic set of workspaces with a constant inflow and modification of user generated content. Documents, images, libraries, tasks, calendars and links: This is the information that drives your productivity and SharePoint makes it relatively easy to upload and share that information with the rest of your colleagues….almost too easy.
We’ve heard your feedback: you want to apply preferred configurations across your entire environment, and you want it to be fast. You want to save and iterate on your favored set-up and use it as a template that can be shared. You want to update configurations in mere seconds. Server-side Configuration gives you what you’ve been asking for: configuration files that can be easily updated, shared, and used with automation tools.
At AvePoint, we’re pumped about our new partnership with Rackspace! We’ve been working hard to bring you a solid foundation to host your Microsoft SharePoint environment and we’re excited about the results. By combining the industry expertise provided by Rackspace’s SharePoint team with the confidence of AvePoint’s award-winning DocAve Software Platform for data protection, management and reporting, we’ve developed one of the most secure and manageable hosted SharePoint experiences around.
OSCON 2014 is upon is. We’ll have a number of Rackspace specialists on-hand throughout the event talking about all things open source. We’re pumped to head to Portland to highlight the projects we’ve contributed to and collaborate and innovate with the open source community.
