From taking down a patent troll to acquiring a company that strengthens our focus on developers, there is a lot to talk about in this week’s digest. Let’s dive right in.
Score one for the good guys. Rackspace and Red Hat just defeated Uniloc, a notorious patent troll. This case never should have been filed. The patent never should have been issued. The ruling is historic because, apparently, it was the first time that a patent suit in the Eastern District of Texas has been dismissed prior to filing an answer in the case, on the grounds that the subject matter of the patent was found to be unpatentable. And was it ever unpatentable.
March Madness is upon us. As the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament gets into full swing this week, we held a March Madness of our own, this time pitting 16 popular text editors against each other in a battle royale. We also showed you how the open cloud can aid in academic and scientific research at universities. And we cut the ribbon on the Open Cloud Academy. Check out this week’s digest for all of that and more.
This week saw SXSW Interactive take over Austin; Vagrant 1.1 support the Rackspace Open Cloud; and an infographic making the case for Hosted Exchange. Take a look at the weekly digest where we recap everything that happened this week and more.
Over the weekend, there was everything from the new Leap Motion Controller to the Chicken Dance as teams from Rackspace and other companies competed in the Drone Games, a competition to hack Parrot AR Drones held in conjunction with SXSW Interactive.
This week, we updated Rackspace Private Cloud, told the world about the open cloud revolution and prepared for SXSW Interactive craziness. Take a look at the weekly digest to see what happened this week, and what’s to come.
We ended February and kicked off March in a big way. This week we announced an acquisition, opened our new community to the masses and helped your startup prep for SXSW Interactive. You’ll find all of this and more here in the weekly digest.
Rackspace’s Social Media Support Team this week took home a silver award for Front Line Customer Service Team of the Year at the seventh annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. The award is an awesome recognition of our passion for customers and Fanatical Support.
Many people know about our Rackers’ passion for Fanatical Support and our unique culture. But few people have had the opportunity to visit our headquarters, the site of the former Windsor Park Mall in San Antonio, Texas – affectionately known as ”The Castle.”
This week we simplified our cloud pricing, welcomed a powerful new ally to our fight against patent trolls and embarked upon a cloud journey. Check out all of that and more in this week’s digest.
