comment Rackspace MS 2008 cloud server VPN
I had trouble setting up a VPN using Hamachi and as best as I can tell the issue is that the VPC hosts do not allow "promiscuous" mode which is necessary for certain configurations. Hope that helps a tiny bit.

comment Does SQL database perform significantly better on a dedicated machine vs Azure cloud
We followed Rackspace's advice and went bare metal and it is faster, but nowhere near the ROI we hoped. We implemented Couchbase (memcached) across the site and dropped our load on SQL down to the point where we'd prefer to put it back on the cloud and save the money. Dedicated servers are EXPENSIVE from Rackspace.

comment Can I deploy via Git to Rackspace Cloud Sites?
Correct. (SFTP is supported too) The other answers are confusing Cloud Sites and Cloud Servers. If you want to push via Git to a PaaS, you could try something like Appharbor.

comment DroboS causes Windows Server 2008 box to hang on boot
This link on Drobo's site points to a possible issue with Backup, but it does not seem to match my experience: support.datarobotics.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/163

comment Where would an S3 upload speed cap originate?
Sorry for the delay in responding, I wanted to make sure I had a reboot and was able to test under the same conditions. It appears that this hasn't yet solved my problem. What else can I check? Tracert to S3 doesn't give me the full latency picture, but up to level3 in WA, I'm sub 30 ms.
