Just two months ago, we launched a new Sydney region and brought the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud “down under.” Today, our cloud is now available in a new Northern Virginia (IAD) region. This brings our total global region count to five: Dallas, Chicago, Northern Virginia, London and Sydney. We’re not slowing down and are actively building out another region, so stay tuned for an additional launch soon!
Hurricane Sandy is poised to pound the mid-Atlantic and Northeast today through Wednesday, with intense winds and torrential rains that could cause widespread power outages and floods, including in areas where Rackspace operates data centers. The teams at our Virginia facilities, and also at our headquarters in San Antonio, have been working round the clock to ensure that our customers’ data remains safe and that they continue to receive the Fanatical Support that they’ve come to expect, even during what many forecasters predict will be a “perfect storm.”
