When I heard that Rackspace has been recognized as a market leader in Gartner’s 2012 Magic Quadrant for Managed Hosting, North America for the second consecutive year, I was reminded of Frank Sinatra crooning “love is lovelier the second time around.” It’s a great honor once; but twice is even nicer.
As part of our Earth Day celebration, we’re launching We want to highlight the “prosperity with purpose” created by our business model of Fanatical Support, which reflects our holistic approach and belief that business, people and the environment are inextricably linked.
In this edition of the Rackspace Weekly Digest, we’re spotlighting OpenStack Summit Portland, women in the cloud and the future of the open source technologies. Here’s a handy guide in case you missed anything:
This week at Rackspace, we’re running full steam ahead. In case you missed anything, here’s a handy digest to get you up to speed.
We’ve been vocal in our opposition of patent trolls and their attempts to extort settlements from businesses that actually create value. And we’ve done more than talk—in the past month, we fought a troll in court, and won, and we turned the tables on another, suing them in Federal Court.
Wow! It’s April already. From fighting patent trolls to diving into preparations for the upcoming OpenStack Summit, it’s been another action-packed week here at The Rack. In case you missed anything, here’s a handy recap of this week’s biggest news.
Today we drove a stake into the ground in our dogged fight against patent trolls – we sued one of the most notorious patent trolls in America.
From taking down a patent troll to acquiring a company that strengthens our focus on developers, there is a lot to talk about in this week’s digest. Let’s dive right in.
Score one for the good guys. Rackspace and Red Hat just defeated Uniloc, a notorious patent troll. This case never should have been filed. The patent never should have been issued. The ruling is historic because, apparently, it was the first time that a patent suit in the Eastern District of Texas has been dismissed prior to filing an answer in the case, on the grounds that the subject matter of the patent was found to be unpatentable. And was it ever unpatentable.
March Madness is upon us. As the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament gets into full swing this week, we held a March Madness of our own, this time pitting 16 popular text editors against each other in a battle royale. We also showed you how the open cloud can aid in academic and scientific research at universities. And we cut the ribbon on the Open Cloud Academy. Check out this week’s digest for all of that and more.
