This year, OpenStack participated in Open Source Day (OSD) at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) for the second time. The main focus of this year’s Open Source Day was humanitarian applications. Along with OpenStack, participating open source projects included Microsoft Disaster Recovery, Ushahidi, Sahana Software Foundation and others.

Rackspace experts will be out in full force next week at VMworld Europe 2014, as we take to the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona to showcase how Rackspace manages all the things through managed VMware®, managed OpenStack® and Managed Cloud.
More than a year ago, we joined forces with the OpenStack Heat community with the goal of productizing the capabilities of orchestration.
Stability and scalability are imperative in an enterprise private cloud. Your workloads demand that your private cloud is up and running and that it can grow with your business.
In October, Rackers will once again take OpenStack to the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing! As OpenStack sharpens its focus on the super user, we will as well with this year’s Open Source Day. The focus of the Open Source Day is humanitarian projects, and Grace Hopper conference organizers want female developers to learn how to contribute to them. Beside OpenStack, this year’s participating projects include Microsoft Disaster Response, Ushahidi’s initiative CrisisNET, the Sahana Eden humanitarian platform and others.

Just as summer comes to a close, so does our RPC Insights series. This series of webinars and blog posts by Rackspace Sales Engineer James Thorne provided detailed information and guidance to help you get started with Rackspace Private Cloud. From spinning up your first instance, to using RPC to support your software development lifecycle and host your web tier and big data solutions, James provided important insights and detailed examples.
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.
Since Rackspace co-founded OpenStack four years ago, the developer community has taken over several major cities, including San Diego, Atlanta, Portland and even Hong Kong with the bi-annual OpenStack Summit.
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.”
