SXSW Interactive officially kicked off on Friday, but Rackspace had reason to celebrate Thursday night with a packed pool deck full of partners and customers at the W Hotel in Austin. It was there we unveiled our commitment to specialize in content, commerce and mobile with the launch party for our Rackspace Digital practice. Partygoers enjoyed great company, hors d’oeuvres, libations, music mixes, great visuals, cool swag and the chance to learn about our plans in the digital space from Rackspace specialists. It was truly a night that will be talked about long after SXSW is over.

Analytics have become part of our everyday experience. If you have a Fitbit you can see analytics on your weight loss and step goals over weeks at a time. If you are a stock owner you likely get data analysis on your portfolio and their returns over a certain period. In business, if you happen to use Mailchimp to send out newsletters, you often see analytics on opens, click-throughs and more.
At its core, hybrid cloud is about flexibility and choice – it’s the ability to choose the infrastructure that is the best fit for your specific workload through a combination of public and private clouds and dedicated hardware. At Rackspace, we do this on cloud platforms built on open standards, specifically OpenStack. In this kind of model, cloud interoperability is imperative.
Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching. Companies pay millions of dollars to get that coveted 30 second commercial spot—and that doesn’t account for the cost to create the ads. For many big name companies, Super Bowl Sunday breeds big traffic numbers. It’s imperative that their websites and apps can stand up to the traffic blitz that this global event implies.
