Help Us Build Something Great: The Open Cloud Community

A number of you have questions about open cloud technologies. And there are many more of you out there who have the answers. We want your help in building a thriving community where cloud questions and answers lead to a free-flowing conversation.

We recently launched the new Rackspace Open Cloud Community, where you can interact with your peers and nearly 5,000 Rackers. The cornerstone of a great community is its participants, and we’re asking you to come along and share your expertise with the rest of us.

We know it will be awesome, but we need your help to get it there.

Did your business recently overcome a major technological challenge? Come share your story – others are likely dealing with that same issue. Building something cool with OpenStack Quantum? Let the rest of the cloud world know and learn from your experience.

The Open Cloud Community offers several forums where you can connect with folks, swap stories, share tips and tricks and talk cloud – everything from high-level to deep drilldowns.

The forums include:

  • General Discussion: New to Rackspace? Don’t know where to post? Well, let’s get started. Connect with other technophiles to learn all about the wonderful world of hosting.
  • Product Forums: Currently working with a Rackspace product? Got questions? This is the spot where you can ask questions about our products, learn more and connect with others community members. Feel free to share your knowledge and help others too.
  • Developer Forum: For our community members who dream in 1s and 0s, who look at the world as being just a few lines of code from perfection – this is the place for you to be. Jump right in and get your dev-speak on with other like minded members.
  • Dedicated & Hybrid Hosting: These forums are for community members to collaborate and discuss traditional dedicated and hybrid hosting offered from Rackspace.

Just like Fanatical Support couldn’t exist without our customers, the Open Cloud Community can’t grow without you. Check out the Rackspace Open Cloud Community and get the discussion started – or contribute to one that’s already going on. Together we can make it awesome.

We’ll see you there.
