A few weeks ago, Drew and I took our Office Hours Hangout on the road to New Relic’s FutureStack conference. We saw several presentations, and learned so much. My favorite talk from the conference came from Rackspace Senior Process Engineer Robert Chapa. When we asked Robert what that meant, he told us, “I build the automation that helps drive Fanatical Support.” One of the surprising tools Robert has been using is New Relic Insights. Last week we had Robert on the Hangout to re-share that presentation.

At Rackspace, we’re immensely excited about our partnership with New Relic that helps power our DevOps Automation Service.
