Talking Cloud Sites, Our Web Hosting Platform: Google+ Hangout Recap

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | November 19, 2013 3:00 pm

We’ve spent a lot of time talking about our different server and storage products, but this past week on the Rackspace Google+[1] Office Hours Hangout we talked a little bit about Cloud Sites[2], our platform for hosting websites and blogs. Check out some of the highlights below (linked to the point in the video that it was discussed) or watch the full video of the Hangout[3] at the bottom of the post.

Those were some of the highlights from this past week’s Google+ Office Hours Hangout on Cloud Sites. This Thursday at 1:00 p.m. CST we will talk load testing with Cloud Tools partner Load Impact[11]. Be sure to sign up for this Google+ Hangout now[12] so you don’t miss it, and I’ll see you there!
