It is offering to implant its OpenStack-based cloud know-how into service provider and telco data centers, at a cost. Rackspace has powered its cloud using OpenStack’s technologies and principals and said it now wants to further capitalize on this by offering its own technology and support to get OpenStack cloud environments up and running in other facilities.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
