Providing users with programmatic control of their infrastructure has always been one of the primary value propositions of the Rackspace Cloud. The ability to deploy and manage a wide array of cloud resources with a few lines of code has brought new levels of automated efficiency to the IT industry and revolutionized how we think about managing our applications and workloads.
In May, we began offering limited availability of the Brocade Vyatta vRouter. This network appliance allows us to provide you software-based networking and securityfeatures, such as virtual private network (VPN), firewall, network address translation (NAT) and routing capabilities in the next generation open cloud. Until today, all Cloud Account customers who were interested in using the vRouter had to apply for access to this software appliance. Today, we are removing this limitation and offering unlimited availability of the vRouter to all of our Cloud Account customers.
I met up with famous business blogger Chris Brogan at the Blog World Expo (now named the New Media Expo) and we sat down to talk about blogging and what he’s seeing happen around the world inside corporate marketing. He also talks about what it takes to feed the blog beast as an independent blogger. Thanks Chris Brogan for dropping by! You can find him at http://www.chrisbrogan.com/
