At Rackspace, we’re always on the lookout for ways to trigger creativity and innovation, both in the workplace and with our Startup Program. Sometimes, cultivating inspiration requires bringing together some of the industry’s most talented techies and then giving them a tight deadline to come up with a plan.
Shredding riffs and bleeding edge technology will collide during SXSW next week as the Geeklist-powered Slashathon hackathon marries hacks and axe to build the next great music app.
If there’s one thing we’re passionate for at Rackspace, it’s people.
Rackspace Cloud Deployment Services give you the ability to easily deploy applications and frameworks to the Rackspace Open Cloud. This lets you focus on code instead of architecting and deploying separate production, staging and development environments.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The StartupBus finalists have been selected. They are: Nutfund, Bridgefy, On The List, TrustMail, MiniMap, Smart Host and Beander. The finalists present their pitches starting at 2 p.m. CST today (Thursday, March 6). Tune in live here.

So after following the first three posts, we now have a Rackspace Private Cloud powered by OpenStack running with two Controllers (HA) and three Computes. So now what? Well the first thing we need to do is get our hands dirty with the OpenStack Networking component, Neutron, and create a network that our instances can be spun up on. For the home lab, I have dumb unmanaged switches – and I take advantage of that by creating a Flat Network that allows my instances access out through my home LAN on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet.
In the first two posts I covered the basics: what hardware is involved and the basic network services that form the basis of my Rackspace Private Cloud install. In this post, I set up Rackspace Private Cloud to give an OpenStack environment consisting of highly available Controllers running as a pair with services such as the OpenStack APIs, Neutron, Glance and Keystone and three compute servers allowing me flexibility to do some testing.
In the first part of this series, I introduced the kit that makes up my home lab. There’s nothing unusual or special in the kit list, but it certainly is affordable and makes entry into an OpenStack world very accessible.
