It’s been a busy week for the Deep Dive Series team as we wrap up a week that included our regularly scheduled show on Wednesday in addition to delivering a version of the Deep Dive show to a live local audience of attendees at our Rackspace Solve NYC conference.
After last month’s three part Deep Dive series on security in a dedicated server environment, we’re kicking off our three February sessions with Jarret Raim, head of strategy and operations for our Rackspace Managed Security practice as we look beyond technology to focus on the larger topic of security and compliance.
In today’s Deep Dive webinar on security in servers and networking, we focused on the impact an architecture comprised of dedicated physical server and networking components has on predictability of performance and security for non-cloud native workloads.
Amid all of the buzz around cloud technology, it is critical for IT organizations to understand the economic aspects of this technology beyond differences between CapEx and OpEx that have been discussed ad nauseam.
I joined Rackspace 27 months ago as one of about 2,000 Rackers. At that time, the company had a vision of a cloud powered by OpenStack that would give you, our customers, the best of cloud, dedicated and virtualized technologies. It was mostly a vision – OpenStack had been born only a few months before.

Dedicated hardware is one of the pillars of the Rackspace Hybrid Cloud, which blends dedicated servers with public cloud and private cloud to create the best fit for each customer’s specific IT needs. Many of our customers come to us from a one-size-fits-all public cloud, and they tell us that the hybrid cloud approach has improved the performance, reliability and overall cost of their infrastructure.
