Rackspace: "Why build your own power plants?"
By user742451 on Oct 30, 2009
Matt Chivers caught up with Bret Piatt from Rackspace at OpenWorld. Brett provides his perspective on utility computing. And likens corporate datacenter build outs to building your own power plant rather buying off the utility's grid. He also speaks to the opportunity for SaaS ISVs running Oracle Platform for SaaS within Rackspace's managed hosting or cloud environments.
Rackspace had a busy week at OpenWorld including: a demo of Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic running on a Rackspace Cloud Server™ during the keynote of Hasan Rizvi, SVP of Oracle Fusion Middleware, exibiting in the SaaS and Cloud pavilion, and Lew Moorman's participation in a cloud panel at the Oracle Leader's Circle.
