This summer, we brought several interns aboard at our San Francisco Office (SFO). In this blog series, these interns share tales of their times as Rackspace summer interns.
One of the ways we improve our services is by asking for your feedback. We want to offer you the tools you need to do great things in the cloud.
Last fall Rackspace announced the unlimited availability of Cloud Monitoring, our highly available API-driven monitoring system that is changing how we deliver Fanatical Support. Since then, we have been quietly adding features; and today we’re making those features available through unlimited availability, and we’re unveiling even more.
When you host your app in the cloud, you want to make sure that the infrastructure that runs it is up and available. Cloud Monitoring is an easy way to monitor your servers to ensure they are performing properly. In particular, there are two methods of monitoring my app’s servers that I always set up: ping checks and HTTP checks.
Last week we announced the preview availability of Rackspace Service Registry. We want to give our customers some more insight into the Service Registry. This is the first article in a “Behind the Scenes” series where I will talk in depth about different aspects of this product such as:
It was another big week here at Rackspace. A lot happened, and there’s more to come. Here’s the breakdown, in case you missed it.
This month, we raised the curtain on the Rackspace open cloud and welcomed our customers into a new era of openness, choice and innovation. And now we’re taking that one step further by making  Rackspace Cloud Monitoring available to everyone through Unlimited Availablity. Cloud Monitoring is a powerful tool that unlocks the value of the open cloud by letting customers monitor any cloud or infrastructure, whether it’s hosted in your datacenter or ours. It’s one easy solution to monitor all IT infrastructure from a single interface, regardless of vendor or location. Cloud Monitoring joins Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack and Cloud Databases as pillars of the Rackspace open cloud.
This is another post in the series about Cloud Monitoring and libraries we have open-sourced. In the first week I talked about Whiskey, a powerful Node.js test framework, in the second week Gary talked about the Cassandra CQL driver and in the third week I talked about node-elementtree, a Node.js library for building and parsing XML documents. This week I’ll talk about node-swiz, a Node.js library for serializing, deserializing and validating objects in RESTful APIs.
This is another post in the series about Cloud Monitoring libraries we have open-sourced. I first talked about Whiskey, a powerful Node.js test framework and recently Gary talked about the Cassandra CQL driver. This week I’m going to talk about node-elementtree, a Node.js library inspired by Python’s ElementTree module for building and parsing XML.
One of the great technology enablers of the last decade has been open-source software. It encourages commercial software developers to create better products by fostering processes that cut across companies, utilizing the best talent from each. Additionally, competition from open-source projects creates an ecosystem that gives consumers more choice in the software they use to power their enterprises.
