Third Thursday Open Q&A: Google+ Hangout Recap

This past Google+ Hangout took place on the Third Thursday, meaning that the floor was open to general Q&A for anyone interested in the cloud. We fielded questions that were posted to Facebook, Twitter and Google+, in addition to talking about some of cloud trends and best practices. Here is a recap of some of the top points, and you can watch the Cloud Office Hours Hangout video in its entirety below.

  • We started off the show by talking about the major cloud news from the past week, including: Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, software defined networks, cloud application migration tools and cloud growth in Australia.

Thanks to all the folks who submitted a question for our Third Thursday Hangout! Alan is still at home helping with the newest addition to his family, but we will all be back this at 1:00 p.m. Thursday to tackle another topic in the cloud. Be sure to check out the Rackspace Google+ page for information on how to join the next Hangout!
