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.
We’ve been hearing a lot lately from customers who are frustrated by the limitations of one-size-fits all clouds, whether they’re based on public cloud or private cloud or bare metal servers. These customers want each of their workloads to run where it runs best and most cost-effectively. And that’s what we at Rackspace work to deliver to them, through our hybrid cloud.
Rackspace knows how to build and run clouds. And RightScale knows how to help customers manage workloads on those clouds. I’ve worked closely with engineering and product teams on both sides and can say that Rackspace and RightScale represent some of the brightest minds in the cloud biz.
