Matt Tanase (a founder of Slicehost) on Rackspace’s decision to kill Slicehost
Published: May 5, 2011 3:37 pm
Earlier this week Rackspace announced that they were discontinuing the Slicehost brand, and existing customers would have to migrate over to their new platform. Many customers were frustrated by this announcement and didn’t understand why they had to change. I had the opportunity to catch up with Matt Tanase, a co-founder of Slicehost, to talk about his thoughts on the announcement.
In this interview Matt gives us a brief history of Slicehost, his thoughts on how Slicehost and Rackspace could have avoided this problem, and what it felt like to hear the news. Towards the end of the interview we also cover Matt’s latest project, Devstructure. You don’t want to miss this interview.
