Rackspace using Drupal

,----[ Quote ]

Open Source Search Powers MTV Networks

| Solr is a branch of the Apache Lucene project, which has also 
| spawned other powerful spin-offs such as the Hadoop distributed 
| computing system. Lucene itself is a Java library used as a 
| core component for multiple search systems. Solr was originally 
| developed by Yonik Seeley while at CNET Networks, where it is 
| used on the CNET Reviews site to help visitors drill down 
| through search results by category. Seeley has since joined 
| Lucid Imagination, a firm formed to provide commercial 
| distributions, training, and support for Lucene and Solr.



Rackspace takes open source approach with release of Cloud Servers API

,----[ Quote ]
| Taking an open-source approach, Rackspaceâs 43,000 cloud-computing customers
| played a major role in the API specifications, explained Emil Sayegh general
| manager for The Rackspace Cloud, formerly branded as Mosso cloud hosting.
| They overwhelmingly preferred the newer lighter-weight REST approach to the
| older heavy-duty SOAP standard that Amazon uses, he said.

| The next step in Rackspaceâs strategy is to open-source the API, which
| according to Sayegh will be announced soon. He notes that Amazon has no
| announced plans to go to open source.
