Cloud Files, powered by OpenStack®, provides an easy to use online storage for files and media which can be delivered globally at blazing speeds over Akamai's content delivery network (CDN). Whether your storage needs are modest—or monumental—you enjoy triple redundancy, an easy-to-use control panel, and Fanatical Support® from day one. And because we built Cloud Files on OpenStack, if you ever want to move to another provider, you can.
With Cloud Files there are no upfront costs and all customers are backed by Fanatical Support and the confidence of our industry-leading SLAs.
Rackspace founded OpenStack with NASA, and we're one of the project's lead contributors. The Rackspace Cloud Files development team created and contributed the underlying source code that has become OpenStack Object Storage software, which currently powers Cloud Files.
We believe that Rackspace Cloud Files is one of the largest, if not the largest, production deployment of OpenStack Object Storage.
Deliver your content rapidly around the world with Akamai's Content Delivery Network. Rackspace uses 213 of Akamai's edge locations, selected especially for our customers' typical usage patterns, and designed to cover all major areas of the globe. This premier CDN caches content at those edge locations, saving users time as they receive content from within their region, instead of from the origin server.
Where many providers take the approach of, "Here's an API, what more do you need?" we actively maintain our different code libraries, updating them consistently so you can make the most of your unique code.
Need Dedicated Servers and Cloud Files? The RackConnect hybrid option gives you the performance of Dedicated Servers and the elasticity of Cloud Files working seamlessly together.
Store and manage unlimited files using our online control panel, desktop software, or programmatically via the API. And even manage it on-the-go via your iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® and Android device.
Unlike traditional storage solutions, there's nothing to buy and no upfront costs for Cloud Files™. You'll pay only for the file storage space and outgoing bandwidth that you actually use.
Each container that you create for your files can be marked as either private or public.
