Third Thursday Q&A: Google+ Hangout Recap

We flushed the format in this week’s Cloud Launch Team Office hours, opening up the floor for questions from all our viewers. This Hangout was such a hit that I am happy to introduce Third Thursday Open Q&A! Here are some of the highlights from last week’s Google+ Hangout.

  • I answered a question about what mobile apps are powered by the Rackspace Cloud. We looked at one popular app and examined how a mobile development company can leverage the cloud with multiple nodes under a load balancer. Drew went on to talk about how these developers can utilize Cloud Files to help store user generated assets.

These are some of the highlights from last week’s Office Hours. Be sure to check out the Rackspace Google+ Page for an announcement of our next Hangout. If you have any burning cloud questions, be sure to put them in the comments below! And remember – if we answer your cloud question on-air during a Third Thursday Open Q&A, we’ll send you a Rackspace T-Shirt.
