Rackspace is proud to announce that all Cloud Files customers have now been migrated to Akamai. This means that all Cloud Files customers, both in the US and UK are now being served via Akamai’s expansive content distribution network.
Our next step in this transition is to begin implementing new URLs. Legacy URLs will still work for all customers. Our new URLs will look like http://c186397.r97.cf1.rackcdn.com/rackdogblog2.png
Whenever possible, you should use the new format URLs. To take advantage of new features which are coming soon (e.g. SSL and CNAME ), you will be required to use the new URLs. If you request a URL via an application or Cloud Files API beginning today, you will be presented with the new format even though your old URLs will still work.
As the last step in our CDN migration plan, this milestone marks the beginning of an extravaganza of product releases for CDN and Cloud Files.
