This morning I’m beyond thrilled to announce that Rackspace has purchased SharePoint911. Now all of us are Rackspace employees, AKA “Rackers”. Back in January, our team took a trip out to San Antonio to the RackSpace headquarters, to meet our future colleagues and see what the company is all about.
Rackspace and SharePoint911 are a great fit with each other when it comes to corporate culture and personalities, and we’re eager to work with them to share our expertise and build the SharePoint services in the company.
Here are some of the links to the big (official) news announcements today:
