How about a performance boost this holiday season?
By Casey Charvet, Technical Director, Blastro Networks
For the past two weeks, we’ve told you about how we engineered our new Performance Cloud Servers to deliver exceptional levels of application performance.We’ve told you that Performance Cloud Servers are built with 100 percent data center-grade solid-state disks (SSDs) and powerful Intel® Xeon® E5 processors, as much as 120 GB of memory and 40 gigabits per second of highly available network throughput to every host machine.
Last week, we launched Rackspace Performance Cloud Servers, a new breed of cloud servers built to deliver exceptional levels of application performance, and made them available in our Northern Virginia (IAD) region. Today, we’re expanding the reach of Performance Cloud Servers to our Chicago (ORD) and London (LON) regions.
At Rackspace, we’re Fanatical about our customers’ performance and success. That attitude drives every part of our business. It has helped power our growth from a tiny San Antonio startup to a billion-dollar global company. And the ingredients of our Fanatical Support constantly evolve and expand to meet new customer needs.

At OpenStack Summit Hong Kong, Jonathan Proulx of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) highlighted how the lab is using OpenStack to power dozens of research projects.
Performance. That’s a word I hear more and more as I meet with Rackspace customers. It’s what most of us strive for in business, and in life. We want things done faster, more precisely, and more reliably — from our morning coffee to our business projects and goals. The drive for performance, amid rising competition, pushes us to innovate. What used to take weeks now takes minutes.
The true value of a successful innovation is not always immediately evident. But then it spawns more innovation, and its performance grows exponentially. That’s as true in cloud computing as it was a century ago in auto making. When Ransom Olds and Henry Ford began building cars on assembly lines, the early models were good. But the succeeding models quickly got better — by orders of magnitude. They were far faster, more reliable, and more affordable.
