Cloud Founders: Developers Don’t Want To Sys Admin The Server

Prior to Cloud Sites, the founders had been working together for five years. The team built applications both for Rackspace and others, and they recognized that they needed to run somewhere. But after they built the app, the founders would have to sys admin the servers they ran on.

One time, a hard drive failed on a server running an application, and they realized that they didn’t have a recent backup to restore from. At this point they realized the need that people writing code and producing content had for a simple, cloud based application platform. Hear it from the founders themselves in this video.

Did you know that Cloud Sites hosts more than 400,000 sites across 112 countries? Check out the infographic Rackspace Cloud Sites – A Look At The Numbers for more examples of the power of Cloud Sites.
