This week at Rackspace, we’re running full steam ahead. In case you missed anything, here’s a handy digest to get you up to speed.
We’ve been vocal in our opposition of patent trolls and their attempts to extort settlements from businesses that actually create value. And we’ve done more than talk—in the past month, we fought a troll in court, and won, and we turned the tables on another, suing them in Federal Court.
Wow! It’s April already. From fighting patent trolls to diving into preparations for the upcoming OpenStack Summit, it’s been another action-packed week here at The Rack. In case you missed anything, here’s a handy recap of this week’s biggest news.
Today we drove a stake into the ground in our dogged fight against patent trolls – we sued one of the most notorious patent trolls in America.
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.
