    It’s Official… I Am Now A Mosso / Rackspace Employee.

    By Derek | March 23, 2009

    It’s official. As of about 8:30 am this morning, I am officially employed by Rackspace.

    I work in the cloud files division, called Mosso, as a Linux Systems Admin. Tomorrow, I get to find out exactly what that means.

    I spent the day today going through their “new-hire” process. It was actually pretty interesting.

    We spent the morning going over and signing up for our health benefits. They provided lunch, and then the afternoon was spent with presentations from security and systems administration.

    I also received parking tags and an ID badge.

    I’ve never had to wear an official ID badge before. Of course, many of my school district clients had me wear visitor badges, so the concept isn’t completely foreign, but still, it’ll be kinda weird.

    Jill and I went through all of the healthcare paperwork tonight. Whew.

      I tremendously pleased about this. “Cloud” is far and away the future of IS/IT, and your in the middle of it.

      I’m looking forward to seeing your impact on things… Mosso is luck to have you.
