Will investors back revamped Rackspace?
Rackspace comes out of the managed hosting service business to cloud, and perhaps for that reason, observers of the market have less confidence it will do well in cloud services, compared to Amazon, Microsoft or Google. Rackspace needs an executive team that can push back against the doubt. Newly appointed President Taylor Rhodes cites the combination of bare metal, dedicated servers versus commodity public cloud -- Rackspace's hsa both. And that's it's strength, along with qualified technical support people behind the services. As the enterprise takes a greater interest in making use of public clouds, this may prove to have its appeal. Will investors buy it?
