No Servers and No Software: What Is Cloud Computing and How To Leverage It For Your Business (Video)

Cloud computing can do everything, or only some things if you don't need everything.

What is cloud computing? How did it get started? Why should a small business use it? John Engates, the Chief Technology Officer of Rackspace Hosting, answers these questions and more in this video.

Rackspace Hosting is the world’s leading specialist in hosting and cloud computing. Engates joined Rackspace in August 2000, just a year after the company was founded, as Vice President of Operations, managing the datacenter operations and customer-service teams. Two years later, when Rackspace decided to add new services for larger enterprise customers, Engates created and helped develop the Intensive Hosting business unit. Most recently, he’s has played an active role in the evolution and evangelism of Rackspace’s cloud-computing strategy and cloud products. Engates meets frequently with customers to hear about their needs and concerns, and to discuss Rackspace’s vision for the future of cloud computing.
