Rackspace Deployment Services: Google+ Hangout Recap

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | September 10, 2013 3:00 pm

This past week we had a special Cloud Office Hours, where we got to interview some of the engineers behind the Rackspace Deployment Services[1]. We recently launched this service in our Cloud Control Panel, enabling users to automatically deploy infrastructure for popular apps, frameworks and building blocks of the cloud using tried-and-true best practices. I cover some of the highlights below, but this is going to be one Hangout that you don’t want to miss and I encourage you to watch the entire video[2] embedded at the bottom of the post.

For more information about the Rackspace Deployment Services, be sure to check out the landing page[9] or go to this post and video on our DevOps blog[10]. As a reminder, our next Google+ Office Hours Hangout will be this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST during which we will explore our brand new Geekdom creative collaboration space in San Francisco[11]. I hope you are able to join us. We will see you then!
