Rising energy costs and the increasing complexity of the application landscape are two compelling economic reasons to outsource some or all of your IT functions.
We put support at the forefront of everything we do – we call it Fanatical Support. And that level of service starts from the inside with our Rackers. In order for Fanatical Support to be delivered right, our Rackers must be engaged and inspired to volunteer their best each day.
We’ve built Rackspace on several key principles, but ultimately, they boil down to openness, transparency and accountability.

A few days ago we told you about the Unlimited Availability of Cloud Databases. Since then, we have talked with many of you about what you like about Cloud Databases and what you would like to see added. One thing that we consistently hear about from current users is the different levels of support we offer for databases based on whether your account is a Core Cloud account or an Account with a Managed Service Level.
It was an honor this morning to appear on CNBC’s Squawk Box for a lively discussion on one of my favorite topics: the future of cloud computing.
Two years ago, Rackspace made the massive commitment to be the open alternative in cloud computing. That vision is now a reality.
Yesterday kicked off a new era for our customers and the Rackspace Cloud: an era of openness, choice and innovation. It’s been 18 months in the making, and we have officially moved our core cloud technology to OpenStack, the open source cloud operating system that we founded.
When we set out on the journey to the open cloud 18 months ago, we knew our goals were ambitious. We wanted to build the Rackspace Cloud on OpenStack and, in the process, take OpenStack to the next level. We wanted to bring a truly open cloud computing solution to the world; and we knew it would take a tremendous amount of work.
Recently, I read an excellent column in The Atlantic by author and venture advisor Bill Davidow. It reinforced why we at Rackspace do the work that we do — how Fanatical Support on the Open Cloud will help customers avoid vendor lock-in and regain real choice and control over their computing.
