As we continue on with this robotics season the next person on the list of must-have interviews is Daniel Sherrill who is the Community Affairs Specialist at Rackspace. I like to think of Daniel as the tip of the spear when it comes to Rackspace’s community outreach.
Daniel shares the vision Rackspace has through their community involvement with Alamo FIRST and other community projects. He also discusses the value in being an active part of FIRST Robotics.

As we continue on with this robotics season one of the interviews I wanted to make sure to capture was really more of an update show. Last year I spoke with John Reed, who told the story of the growth of FIRST robotics in Del Rio, TX which is a small Texas border town. The reason I wanted to bring John back on the show was because between this year and last year there has been what I’ll call an explosion in the amount of interest and robotics teams along the border. I like to think of John who is a teacher and robotics coach at Del Rio Middle School as the spark that has lit the fuse of this new growth.

Some questions from the show:
After asking him about his background and history, here are some questions you can hit him with (in order depending on how the conversation is going).
Can you describe the "cloud" landscape of today and how business owners should be thinking about it? (amazon.com, Rackspace vs. cloud9 realtime vs. app providers like salesforce.com and hubspot). Is it all about apps?
Stay with mainstream vendors
Hosted e-mail solutions - office 365, Google business apps
Where should the people responsible at looking for the right cloud solutions for their companies start - who is NOT using the cloud these days?! It seems like everyone IS using some version of it.
What are the top business reasons (or best times) to make use of the cloud for a 25-50 user company?
Can you share an example of a situation where you, as an IT expert, thought a company should have used a cloud solution, but did not and it was a mistake (or success)?
How do companies (like PacketDrivers who provide IT outsourcing) work with clients who might need to use a specific cloud solution? Are there more sophisticated solutions out there that need custom support vs. a more simple solutions or is it all the same. What are the various types of cloud solutions?
