Rackspace Names Cloud President

Chief strategy officer Lew Moorman now president of cloud business

Rackspace has made its chief strategy officer Lew Moorman, an ex-McKinsey consultant, president of its cloud business.

As CSO, Moorman was responsible for the epiphany of the Rackspace Cloud (aka Mosso) and drove the acquisition of webmail.us, now the backbone of Rackspace's Cloud Applications division, as well as the Slicehost and Jungle Disk acquisitions.

In his new job he'll run both cloud hosting and cloud applications.

Mosso is the company's fastest growing division, hosting hundreds of thousands of web sites and applications for 16,000 customers. At the core of its cloud application division is Mailtrust, home to over a million mailboxes.
