Las Vegas Skyline Night

Next week marks the start of AppSphere 2016, the third annual AppDynamics conference which unites users of this application performance management software from all over the globe.

Rackspace is a proud Platinum Sponsor of the event for the first time this year. Nov. 15 – 16, the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas will transform into a world-class summit for digital performance, complete with compelling keynotes from industry thought leaders and more, with Rackspace taking part in all of it.

Kyle Metcalf, general manager for the Rackspace Digital practice, will kick things off Nov. 16 when he participates in a moderated panel with AppDynamics and Microsoft Azure to discuss why businesses adopting Microsoft Azure are seeking certified experts to assist them with the complexities that come with running the Azure cloud platform.

Metcalf will also join Ricardo Villalobos CTO, Global ISVs at Microsoft and AppDyanmic’s Matthew Polly for a breakout session at 9 a.m. on Nov. 16 titled “Enabling AppDynamics with Managed Service Partners to Expedite Cloud Migration.” The session will cover methods for overcoming barriers to cloud adoption, different techniques for managing applications in multi-cloud environments and some of the ways Rackspace and Microsoft are providing expertise across this space.

Identifying and recruiting Microsoft Azure specialists, architecture design, security and operations personnel is a daunting task, and it’s taking the focus of many organizations away from their core business. Fanatical Support for Microsoft Azure is the answer for businesses facing these challenges, and Rackspace blends technology and automation to deliver ongoing architecture, security and 24x7x365 operations support from Microsoft certified engineers and architects.

Outside of the conference keynotes and featured talks, Rackspace will showcase our expertise across the world’s leading clouds.
