Infochimps knows what it’s like to deal in big data; it’s the company’s specialty as a big data platform for the cloud. And one of its top requirements is flexibility. As Infochimps Operations Engineer Nathanial Eliot put it: no two jobs are alike – one may need thousands of servers, one may need two. Flexibility and scalability are two of the reasons Infochimps is excited about Rackspace Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack.
In this video, hear Eliot and Infochimps Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder Dhruv Bansal discuss Infochimps’ experience with OpenStack and the Rackspace open cloud.
