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.
It is no accident that we have recently seen a surge in the amount of interest in big data. Businesses are faced with unprecedented opportunities to understand their customers, achieve efficiencies and predict future trends thanks to the convergence of a number of technologies.
Strategising for spikes in your online business is really important yet, astonishingly, many organizations are still not doing it effectively. I believe that ineffective preparation for online spikes is inexcusable with the technology available today.
When we heard about the “Heartbleed” vulnerability in OpenSSL last week, your specialists at Rackspace made it our mission to help our customers avoid heartache.
“OpenStack is on the cusp of major adoption.”  How many times have you heard a vendor or analyst say that or some variation of it in the past 12 months?
