Inside Rackspace’s new San Francisco office [video]

Rackspace, one of the US’s largest hosting companies and data centers, headquartered in Texas, opened a new San Francisco based office last week to give the company a presence in Silicon Valley. The office houses close to 100 employees and comes with a bike repair center and video studio for resident blogger Robert Scoble who heads up Building 43 – a Rackspace-sponsored website featuring startups.

The new office, in the tech startup district of SOMA is just a few blocks from the tech giants of Zynga, Adobe and Twitter. The office director is 26-year-old Alex Polvi who this year sold his company Cloudkick to Rackspace.
