I worked with the Cloud Control Panel (aka Reach) team this summer as an intern at the Rackspace Blacksburg office. The Cloud Control Panel is a handy web interface to the OpenStack-based Rackspace Cloud APIs. It allows the user to provision a server, allocate storage, create database instances and much more, all with the click of a button. (Well, maybe more than one button, but you get the point.)
You can now use Mailgun, the email automation engine we acquired in August, directly within the Cloud Control Panel. That’s right. It’s no fuss, no muss. There’s no separate account to sign up for or manage, and all Rackspace Cloud customers receive 50,000 emails per month absolutely free. If you want to send more than that, just add your credit card in the Mailgun control panel and start sending – it’s simple. And if you have questions about Mailgun, contact your regular Rackspace support team. If we can’t help you, we’ll escalate to the Mailgun team for you, so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of two different support teams.
Want to know what our new Cloud Control Panel is and what it means for you and your business? Want a behind the scenes look at how we built and designed it? Curious how you can get the most out of our open cloud products and services that are available through the Cloud Control Panel?
