We are excited to announce that we have acquired Exceptional Cloud Services and its suite of developer solutions, including error tracking and Redis-as-a-Service capabilities. This acquisition continues to enhance our toolset for developers deploying and managing applications on the open cloud.
During SXSW Interactive, thousands of technologists from across the globe come to Austin to find out about the next big things on the tech horizon, share their knowledge as technology thought leaders with others, network with like-minded geeks and reserve their nocturnal hours for some of the most stellar parties on the planet. Within this subset of technologists are the developers, who are creating and building the architecture, infrastructure and software that allows you to run things on the web today.
Among the many reasons why people choose the cloud, one of the most powerful is the Application Programming Interface, more commonly referred to as the API. As developers continue adopting virtual environments to host their sites and apps, we’re seeing increasingly innovative and powerful uses of this feature.
Many people want to get into the cloud, but they don’t necessarily want to go all in with their configuration. These folks are interested in learning about and using the new technology, and they want to know if they can put a portion of their Windows footprint in the cloud. With Rackspace, the answer is “Yes.”
How many times has this situation happened to you? All the sudden you have this great idea that you want to test out, but you need some server space. Because you are building it for a Windows environment, you think it would be complicated with the licensing and procurement to get a server up to test out your idea. Frustrated, you talk yourself out of the idea and decide not to proceed further.
Rackspace recently launched a brand-new DevOps blog that aims to deliver meaty technical content for developers. It’s seriously all tech, all the time: code snippets, sample code, best practices, infrastructure automation, software development kits (SDKs) and technical guidance from industry experts. Here are some recent posts:
You’ve presumably heard about this “cloud” thing, as it is single-handedly changing the IT game in many ways. What is so great about the cloud, anyway? One of the biggest reasons I like the cloud is it’s giving start-ups and smaller IT shops the chance to compete with some of the big boys. The cloud, for all intents and purposes, is cheaper than traditional hardware, it takes much less time to stand up and it allows you to start working faster.
