Rackspace in the Clouds

Filed in by Angela Bartels | May 27, 2009 12:21 pm

We’ve really enjoyed the opportunities to meet and discuss The Rackspace Cloud and Cloud Computing with you all as we traveled around the States – we learn a lot from you guys, and you really energize us and keep us going at full steam.  We’ll continue to announce our schedule on the blog, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

The month of May has kept us floating in real clouds above cities and between cloud-related IT conferences across America. First, we hosted Lunch 2.0[1] in Austin, TX, then made our way to TiEcon 2009 in Santa Clara, CA, headed out to Glue-Con in Denver, CO, then backtracked to Las Vegas for Interop’s Enterprise Cloud Summit, Cloud Camp Vegas, and a fireside chat. After that the Cloud Computing Keynote Panel at MIT-CIO Symposium found us in Cambridge, MA, followed by a TweetUp [2]in Harvard Square that was well attended. We’ve been talking to lots of great people and interest in cloud computing really seems like it’s at an all-time high and growing.

Here are a few highlights:
