This week the Office Hours Hangout team spoke with Simon Jakesch and Jason Barnhill, two of the team behind Rackspace’s Containers as a Service product, Carina.
Take a peek into day one of OpenStack Tokyo, narrated by our very own Chief Technology Officer and all around cool human, John Engates.
Our latest Office Hours Hangout kept us on the topic of Monitoring. Last week we took a look at Rackspace Intelligence, our single pane of glass which gives customers a real-time and comprehensive overview of the health of their infrastructure at one glance. This week we invited our friends from New Relic to join us to discuss their Insights platform.
On last week’s Office Hours Hangout, cohost Drew Cox and I discussed several new tools, features, and products Rackspace has released in the last year that we think will be most helpful to customers going into the 2015 Black Friday season.
One of the tools we’ve recommended over and over on our weekly Office Hours Hangouts is GitHub — a version control system built on top of Git. We’ve recommended customers use GitHub, but never really taken a deep dive into it, or how our customers can start using GitHub, so we spent our most recent Hangout doing just that. Check out the highlights below. The entire episode, embedded below, is full of great information and questions from our live audience.
Happy 2015 to everyone in the IT industry! May all of your technology dreams and predictions come true! As many post their predictions for the cloud industry (including our very own CTO John Engates, with his Cloud Predictions for 2015) we’d like to offer up a few New Year’s Resolutions for IT decision makers to consider as they transition into the Managed Cloud era.
A lot of the talk at OpenStack Summit Paris this month centered on the current state of OpenStack and its future. As the four-year-old project continues to grow and mature, what will OpenStack look like in five, 10 or 15 years?
At OpenStack Summit Paris, cloud federation – the ability to easily and seamlessly leverage a multi-cloud environment – was a buzz worthy topic. The story of cloud federation was told though a number of sessions: from Tim Bell from CERN’s keynote presentation to several smaller breakouts. Rackspace and CERN openlab are working together to federate OpenStack clouds. The project has already had a number of successes.
Rackspace kicked off OpenStack Summit Paris with the launch of a set of easy to deploy production-ready application stacks for the OpenStack-powered Rackspace Private Cloud. The free solution templates, which include Magento, Drupal, Galera, MongoDB, ELK Stack and Hortonworks HDP, enable you to launch an application stack on your private cloud in minutes instead of months.
For OpenStack to gain wide adoption, it must be easy to use. It has to be manageable and scalable. It cannot be too complex.
