If you run an ecommerce site, email is critical to your business. It creates the dialogue between you and your customers and keeps them informed. In most cases, it’s your most direct line of communication. Yet, so many ecommerce businesses use email as an afterthought, which ultimately hurts business.
San Francisco is a city surrounded: in the morning by sparkling water, sunny weather and the sound of seagulls; in the evening by bone-chilling wind and impenetrable fog; at night by the ambient electricity of imagination and the fertile dreamscapes of shining tomorrows.
Some people like to do everything themselves. To manage their money, they open an online brokerage account and spend a lot of time researching investments and portfolio theory. To maintain their cars, they change their own fluids and filters and tires, and devote many hours to reading manuals and ordering parts. But investment vehicles and motor vehicles alike get increasingly complex. At some point, most busy, successful people — and busy, successful businesses — find it wise to focus on what they do best and let specialists do the rest. That’s a big part of the appeal of what we at Rackspace call managed cloud.
Traditionally, April and May mark the busiest months of year for our Sustainability team, which is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Team (CSR). Yes, there is the obvious Earth Day celebration that takes place during that time, but I want to share some of the highlights from the last six weeks on what the team is working on here at Rackspace:

I recently attended the CIO Europe Summit, hosted by CDM Media. There was a first for me at this event: a CTO for a major global bank gave a 30-minute talk on DevOps to his peers. (In fact, he credited Rackspace’s awesome YouTube Video as a great starting point).
There’s been a lot of talk lately about cloud pricing. The perception seems to be that to tap the power of the cloud you need only acquire some low-cost infrastructure and you’re good to go.
OpenStack Summit Atlanta kicks off on Monday. Thousands of stackers will head to the ATL to hear more about OpenStack during keynote sessions, workshops, a design summit and much more. Rackspace will be out in full force hosting a number of speaking sessions, a keynote presentation from Troy Toman and a bunch of other awesome events.
When I became an infrastructure architect at a large, privately owned consumer-goods store, I was so excited to be on the technology leading edge, a thought leader, and a trendsetter. I imagined all of the cool, new things I’d get to use, build, design, and possibly deploy. It was like playing with Legos or Lincoln Logs, except this was the real world and people were going to consume solutions that I designed so I knew they had better be good.
