Each Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. CST, our Cloud Launch Team offers office hours on our Google+ page to give people a chance to ask questions and learn more about the cloud. Last week, we focused on one of the hottest topics in the cloud: auto-scaling your configuration. To help with the conversation, we asked RightScale, a Cloud Tools partner that assists customers with organizing, configuring, automating and auto-scaling their configurations, to join us. Watch the entire video of the Hangout on YouTube or check out the highlights below that will link you to the spot in the video where the topic was discussed.
I’ve been lucky to have been a part of a really cool project, and I wanted to use the Rackspace blog to get the word out a bit more. For the past few weeks, I’ve hosted a Google Plus hangout that includes me, a few of my Racker friends and some of our customers. It has been a fun, informal way to have a conversation. We’ve answered questions on a number of topics, including Cloud Load Balancers, Active Directory in the cloud, transferring video files to our CDN and many more.
