TechCrunch’s CTO praises Rackspace Cloud

TechCrunch is the technology industry’s most influential media organization and when they make moves the implications can be deep. Recently TechCrunch moved to the Rackspace Cloud and TechCrunch’s CTO, Nik Cubrilovic, talked with building43’s host Robert Scoble about what the move’s implications were to traffic, uptime, peace of mind, and also costs. Across the board Nik praised Rackspace Cloud. In the interview Cubrilovic revealed that they moved from a company that was providing free hosting and are now paying to use Rackspace’s services.

Robert Scoble interviews Nik Cubrilovic from Rackspace Hosting on Vimeo.

Scoble is the Rackspace Startup Liaison Officer, helping small teams have a huge impact with cloud computing technology. He’s a geek who grew up in Silicon Valley and since 1985 he has been building online communities. Robert travels the globe studying and making media about world changing startups. You will also find his videos on YouTube, Google+, Twitter or on the Scoble blog, Robert is also the father of three sons, Patrick, Milan and Ryan, who are lots of fun and they are all geeks in training.


  1. I’m very interested to see a follow-up interview following yesterday’s TechCrunch hacks. Is there a Rackspace investigation/statement on the matter yet?
