Increased Reliability, Decreased Costs with Rackspace OnMetal

Bit Ninja


Earlier this year, Rackspace Cloud Metrics moved their production system from running on virtual cloud machines to running on Rackspace OnMetal. The outcome is a more reliable system that is also cheaper. On this week’s Office Hours Hangout we’ll dive deeper into why and how this change was made. 

The Rackspace Blog post about this is a great resource, and we hope to build off of it. http://www.rackspace.com/blog/cloud-metrics-move-to-onmetal-reliability-up-costs-down/

Join us on Thursday at 11am PDT to join the discussion.
