July Webinars: Capacity Planning; NoSQL & Big Data; Exceptional Cloud Services

This month, we’re bringing you a series of free webinars to help you learn how a hybrid cloud approach can add agility, flexibility and speed-to-market for your organization.

First, we’ll highlight the key considerations to plan for capacity over time and how the cloud comes into play.

In our second webinar, we’ll talk about the performance tradeoffs of using NoSQL, and whether or not it’s right for you.

And at the end of July we’ll dive into Exceptional Cloud Services and its suite of developer solutions, including error tracking and Redis-as-a-Service capabilities.

Join us in lively and engaged discussions with our experts at Rackspace and your peers in the industry, including Enterprise Cloud Solutions Strategist Brian Jawalka and Sam Brisbee, Director of Technical Business Development at Cloudant.

Here’s a schedule of what’s to come:
