With a useful OpenStack lab up and running, it’s time to take advantage of some more advanced features. The first that I want to look at is adding the OpenStack Networking LBaaS (Load Balancer) to my Rackspace Private Cloud. This is currently a Tech Preview and unsupported feature of Rackspace Private Cloud v4.2 and is not considered for use in production at this time. To add this to RPC we simply make a change to the environment and run chef-client across the nodes.
So you wanna learn you some Hadoop, eh? Well, get ready to drink from the firehose, because the Hadoop ecosystem is crammed full of software, much of which duplicates efforts, and much of which is named so similarly that it’s very confusing for newcomers.
Minor Release Upgrade of Rackspace Private Cloud By now you must know that a new version of OpenStack is released every six months. In April, OpenStack’s ninth release, Icehouse, was launched.
In May I was able to attend DevOps Days Austin and last week I attended O’Reilly’s Velocity in Santa Clara. Anyone that is involved with hosting technology has run into the phrase/word “DevOps.” Usually it results in a little head scratching and then questions around “what is DevOps?” Good question. The honest truth is that we (as in the larger technology industry “WE”) are still trying to figure that out. Both DevOps Days and Velocity dive into the tactical aspects of DevOps but I wanted to focus on the overall thought process of DevOps.

I just came aboard as a summer intern here at Rackspace, and immediately, I’m getting my hands dirty on some pretty cool projects.
Docker Inc. recently unveiled an exciting new open source project called Libswarm designed to make the using containers in the public cloud a lot easier.
Rackspace and ObjectRocket want to inspire developers to be creative. We want to help them build applications that solve pressing problems – both today and in the future.
Data processing platforms do not exist in siloes. That is why it is increasingly important for Rackspace to provide interoperability between datastores. This enables customers to choose the best technology for their data processing needs, without being restricted to a single tool.
Performance issues are at the heart of why many apps don’t meet user expectations and die a slow death. While the user might see a single application, on the backend there are many moving parts that must align in order to deliver a consistent experience.
