Welcome to the Jungle! The Rackspace Cloud Welcomes Jungle Disk to the Family

1

Mosso | The Rackspace Cloud is proud to announce that Jungle Disk,  our sister company, will soon be releasing Jungle Disk support on Cloud Files.  Dave Wright, president of Jungle Disk, posted the first public announcement about this release yesterday on the Jungle Disk Blog. With this release, Jungle Disk customers will soon be able to select between Amazon S3 and Rackspace’s Cloud Files Storage Platform.  Need a breakdown of the two offerings? Check out some of our detailed recent blog posts on the topic:

The Mosso and Rackspace family gives a warm welcome to Jungle Disk, and we extend that welcome to all of our future Jungle Disk customers saving files to Cloud Files.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please feel free to shoot them my way at esayegh@mosso.com

It should perhaps be clarified that the Jungle Disk Cloud Files product is separate from Mosso from the customer perspective:

Anyways, can I also ask how the nodes footprint and bandwidth/latency infrastructure compare between Cloud Files and Amazon S3 — *without* CDN? I only know that your web site mentions 3 node clusters for Cloud Files around the world. I’m not sure about S3, but Amazon obviously has separate pricing for U.S. and Europe.

I do appreciate your helpful information about the cost of Cloud Files vs S3, and the download performance of Limelight vs CloudFront. But what about the upload/download performance of Cloud Files vs S3?

I ask because:

– CDN (Limelight) is not involved in uploads

– Jungle Disk Cloud Files does not support CDN downloads, nor public file access
