There’s a lot of talk in the cloud market about the differences between managed and unmanaged clouds.

To help you get started, we created ObjectRocket and Rackspace accounts tailored specifically to the needs of contestants. The only requirement for each app entered is that it must use ObjectRocket NoSQL data services with either MongoDB or Redis.
