Cloud Monitoring was designed to make sure that when something goes wrong we are the first to know, and the first to let you know. As your app grows, it becomes more critical that every monitoring notification you get is actionable. If it isn’t something you can take action on, it ends up taking time away from what really matters. Because of this tenet we’ve realized that not only is it important to create actionable alerts, but also to have the ability to let the monitoring system know if any of those alerts won’t be actionable for a period of time.
As promised last year, we are committed to simplifying database management with Rackspace Cloud Databases. Starting today you can customize configuration settings for Cloud Databases instances using the API or Trove command line tool. This capability allows you to optimize configuration settings based on the needs of your workload.
Last week, we hosted a live webinar, “Making Choices: What Kind of Relationship are you Seeking with your Database?,” in which we dug into the options available for the database tier of modern applications, particularly in the cloud.
Combining Rackspace Cloud’s RBAC with Cloud Files’ ACLs allows you to control read or write access to a particular container and for a particular user.
It was only a few years ago that Rackspace did everything manually to launch new products. The process would take us two years and by the time the product launched, someone would beat us on time to market and it would diminish our hard work. We were entering the cloud market and it was clear that we either had to innovate more quickly and get products out faster or we would not be competitive in this growing, fast-paced market.

Starting today you can create copies of existing Cloud Block Storage volumes from the Control Panel with Volume Cloning.
Developing great products is hard. The most conservative estimates place new product failure rates at 50 percent or more. Many of us can relate to working on an exhilarating project with talented colleagues, where the solution was architected brilliantly and even delivered on-time, only to see the product fall short of expectations in the marketplace.

Over the past few months we have been working hard to provide more automation capabilities for the Rackspace Cloud. In November we told you about Auto Scale, which allows you to define rules to grow or shrink your cloud. Back in August we told you about Deployments, a Control Panel capability that allows you to deploy common applications with a point-and-click interface and based on our best practices.
