Rackspace Cloud

with 2 comments

I’ve been buried in a new project that requires moving our company servers onto a more flexible platform. After a little investigating, we decided to use the Rackspace Cloud.

So far, so good. In a couple of weeks we’ve created and configured 6 servers, running Java, Tomcat, Apache and Postgres all connected to Boston and our existing London site using OpenVPN. It’s been remarkably easy. We’re currently running a beta test, with selected customers on this configuration.

Now that things have settled down a bit, I’ll add some details over the coming days describing what we did, and how we did it.

  2. Looking forward on hearing more details.

    Would you like to elaborate a bit more why you chose Rackspace Cloud instead of e.g. Amazon? One good sign seems to be that there are real humans in the company like Angela 🙂
