San Francisco

March 4, 2015

Join us at Rackspace::Solve San Francisco, a FREE event where you’ll hear directly from today’s tech and business visionaries—including Tinder and Walmart Labs. They’ll give you an inside look into their IT strategy and the real-world solutions that are helping them scale their business, manage big data, and navigate digital trends.

Discover how the Rackspace Managed Cloud works for them, and how it can work for you, too. Through our deep-dive workshops on cloud security, app deployment, data analytics, and more, you can walk away with solutions to your biggest IT challenges.


What we learned at Rackspace::Solve was pivotal for our startup. It’s a full schedule of expert-level knowledge that a small company can afford. Kirk Bowman – Zipline Labs, Inc
