  • What types of sites and services work best with Cassandra?
  • Is there a tipping point for a site or service moving to Cassandra?
  • Why are open standards so important for cloud computing?
  • Will we get to the point where businesses will rely on cloud resources instead of building out their own infrastructure?

She left Rackspace in 2005 to work for PEER 1 Hosting but returned in 2009 because she was interested in the cloud computing movement. Angela is a strong believer in the power of storytelling.
