Social media platforms are where people go to get information and help from (and sometimes to complain about) the brands they do business with. Until recently, the designers of social engagement tools have primarily focused on marketing functions, not customer service or the increasing demand for support. HelpSocial, a Rackspace Startup Program member founded by two former Rackers, hopes to change that with its social engagement platform built specifically to provide customer service on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.
Lew Cirne, CEO of New Relic, a software analytics company, took the stage at Rackspace::Solve San Francisco to give attendees advice on harnessing the power of big data in the Managed Cloud age. According to Cirne, New Relic wants to provide visibility into software and application data to make everybody a data nerd.
At Rackspace, we believe that open source communities enable innovation and collaboration. That is why we founded OpenStack four years back and why we actively engage in the Open Compute Project as well. OnMetal is built on OpenStack software and Open Compute hardware. Listen to what the OnMetal team has to say about why we chose such a design.

With the launch of Rackspace Managed Cloud last month, we drew a line in the sand. We made it clear that we’re not interested in offering pure commodity cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service with no support. Instead, we offer cloud IaaS that comes standard with built-in managed services to help our customers manage that infrastructure.
