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.
Were you aware that with Cloud Monitoring you could monitor any of your servers? No, really, any server, anywhere! It does not matter if they’re hosted on the Rackspace Public Cloud, if they’re Rackspace Dedicated Servers, if they’re in your data centers, or even another providers’ data centers. This means you can even monitor the servers already running on your existing Rackspace Private Cloud!
Introduction My last post talked about the benefits of Object Storage today. My next few posts will talk about the future direction of Object Storage technology, and the upcoming features that you should be aware of. Today, I will talk about Erasure Coding. Once again, this post will be Swift-centric, but many of these concepts will likely be embraced by other platforms as well.
In my position as a Launch Manager on our Cloud Launch Team, I speak everyday with customers who are bringing an application over to Rackspace from another hosting provider. Whether it’s a WordPress blog, a Magento eCommerce site, or a custom-built mobile app, my fellow Launch Managers and I work with our customers to provide a smooth transition from one provider to another. Today, I’ll outline five questions you should ask before starting a migration to Rackspace (or any other hosting provider). I will also be hanging out at 1 p.m. CDT  Thursday, April 24 with other Rackers to discuss these questions in more detail. Join us on Google+ to Hangout, or watch the embedded video below.
Think of the last time you made an online purchase.
