Rackspace launches Cloud Race
The cloud is revolutionising the computing world as we know it and also the way businesses operate. Whilst the more traditional methods mean setting up in-house infrastructure takes weeks and in some cases even months, the cloud can have infrastructure up and running at breakneck speed in a matter of moments. The efficiency and cost-saving benefits of the cloud combined with the ability to scale IT needs at the click of a button, means businesses are heading up into the cloud at a rapid rate.
In fact, we believe the Rackspace Cloud is so simple to use and easy to set-up a user can be ready to go in a matter of seconds. So we challenged our Rackers to spin up a cloud server at breakneck to put our theory to the test and prove how simple our cloud is to work with.
As anyone knows, Rackers are not ones to shy away from a challenge, so check out how three of our Rackers – Matt, Al and Warren – did when attempted the Rackspace Cloud Challenge:
If you reckon you can spin up a server faster than Matt, our champion, and fancy taking up the challenge of the Rackspace Cloud Race, then all you need to do is film yourself spinning up a Rackspace cloud server. The fastest entry will win a day out indoor sky diving and also everyone who enters will win a highly sought after, luxury Rackspace Cloud t-shirt. What other reason do you need to take part!
