Angela runs integrated marketing campaigns for Rackspace. She started at Rackspace in 2003 and has done everything from Linux support, account management, sales, product marketing and now lives in marketing. She left Rackspace in 2005 to work for PEER 1 Hosting but returned in 2009 because she was interested in the cloud computing movement (and has always been a Racker at heart). Angela is a strong believer in the power of storytelling.


    • Nope, I don’t think that Linux training time is a typo. We’re talking SysAdmins here :-)… Much maintenance happens during the “downtime” (1-3am), though, of course, emergencies usually come at the most inconvenient time… SysAdmins often keep hours opposite to the rest of humanity. I was a little surprised about the 8am entry tho.

      Anyway, happy, happy SysAdmin Day, my favorite SysAdmins!

  1. Happy SysAdmin Day indeed! However, why in the world would you create a chronological graphic that reads conterclockwise? You aren’t saying that SysAdmins are backwards are you? 😉

  2. HAHAHAHAAA!!! Luv it!

    [just don’t do system conversions with that kind of schedule… still sleeping in the office for that!]

  3. When will we be able to manage our servers/sites/files from our Android powered devices? The current app doesn’t cut it.

  4. You awesome SysAdmins keep our SMS Text Marketing site running 24/7 – I brag about my Rackspace Server’s “uptime=450 days” and hats off to y’all!!
    Thanks to your hard worki, I *DO* get to sleep at 3:20am!!

  5. Rackspace is the epitome of Hosting. And when they say they are fanatical about their support, its not just a buzzword but part of their DNA. They are the reason why we continue to attract business. Sometime I think they should change their name to Peace of mind hosting – because that’s the feeling we get.

    W hen Rackspace says they will do it, trust them they will. Above all, they are ethical and professional. I wish them well and to all of you the tech guys at Rackspace, keep racking! One day, soon enough, I will buy you guys some good coffee. You really Rock.!

  6. You guys always work hard to resolve issues and help my clients and I when things arise. I brag about Rackspace all the time too! Thanks for all you do.

  7. Hi,

    I love and appreciate all sys admins at Rackspace. Keep up the good work. Your services are not less than that of a policeman who safeguard our city so that citizens can sleep peacefully.
