Each week, Rackspace futurist Robert Scoble connects with startups and other innovative companies, then makes connections and shares insights in his free, weekly email newsletter, Life and Tech. Below is an excerpt from this week’s offering:
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.
Earlier this year, Rackspace Cloud Metrics moved our production system from running on virtual cloud machines to running on Rackspace OnMetal. The outcome is a more reliable system that is — miraculously — cheaper.
Your data footprint is getting larger. From documents and contracts to family photos and beloved songs, your data and files are important pieces of your life – both business and personal.
Cloud Office at Rackspace thrived in 2014 with major product developments and huge customer wins. Each year Cloud Office teams strategize on how to provide the best services and products for our customers worldwide. The execution of those strategies in 2014 resulted in a mega year for Cloud Office and our customers alike.
You have a business to run. You can’t get bogged down worrying about the day-to-day intricacies of infrastructure and operations. You’ve got bigger fish to fry than data backup, patching, security, proactive monitoring and incident response.
As we kick off 2015, the Cloud Databases team has a few early gifts for you. Starting today, we support replication for Cloud Databases and added Control Panel integration for managing your configuration settings.
Criminals are constantly on the lookout for ways to tap your credit card. With just five simple steps, however, you can greatly reduce your exposure to these crooks – or at least limit the amount of damage they can cause – and keep your inbox safe.
The wait is finally over for public folders in Hosted Exchange 2013. Exchange Public Folders let you share calendars, tasks, contacts and email across your organization. You can access folders from Outlook and other Exchange mail clients, the same way you access your personal folders.
Digital Diversification Diversification is a vitally important business strategy that applies to everything from your finances, your workforce and especially your IT layer. The same way you should never place all of your cash reserves into a single investment or hire only database administrators, you should avoid hosting your critical data on a single device or depend heavily on a single technology and, when possible, avoid deploying at a single location.
