The Open Cloud Company: A Day In The Life [Video]

Two years ago, Rackspace made the massive commitment to be the open alternative in cloud computing. That vision is now a reality.

Last week, Rackspace officially launched the open cloud, a suite of cloud solutions built on the OpenStack cloud platform that Rackspace founded. Additionally, Rackspace has made it official that Rackspace is the open cloud company and will continue to take a leadership role in open source cloud development. And on top of it all will be Rackspace’s trademark Fanatical Support.

To herald the era of Fanatical Support on the open cloud, Rackspace producer and video storyteller Dave Sims captured it all as part of his “Day In The Life” video series; short films shot and edited in a single day that illustrate what’s happening here at Rackspace. This video was shot and edited on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012.

Check out more of Dave’s “Day In The Life” videos, in which he’s captured the 2012 Open Compute Summit;  Rackspace’s open cloud launch; the OpenStack Design Summit & Conference; the arrival of the startup bus; rookie orientation graduations; and an impromptu wedding:
