Whether you need to deliver video, images, audio, or other file types, Cloud Files and the Akamai content delivery network (CDN) help you keep your visitors happy.

We integrated Cloud Files with Akamai, the CDN market leader. Using 219 of Akamai’s edge locations, you can position your website’s images, video, audio, HTML files, JavaScript, and cascading style sheets closer to your visitors and end users. That means reliable performance, and less wait time for visitors accessing your websites, videos, media files, or downloads.


Reliable, scalable storage

With Cloud Files, it's incredibly easy to store as many videos, audio clips, or documents as you want. And because your files are replicated three times, your media delivery is not only faster, but more reliable.

Website Acceleration

A faster website or application means happy customers. You get tons of advantages when pages load quickly: higher customer loyalty, better search rankings, higher conversion rates, and increased revenues. By contrast, every second of delay can decrease sales conversions by 7%.

Websites and apps are growing more complex by the day, using more images, JavaScript, or cascading style sheets… so reducing page load time is a real challenge. And if you manage an ecommerce site, advertising site, or social media app, these challenges can be especially painful.

Rackspace Cloud Files can help by offering:

Streaming Audio

The popularity of Internet radio has exploded, doubling every year since 2001. Listeners now expect to access the audio they want, with no wait. It’s the ultimate goal of any audio—related website or app—but it’s tougher to realize when you factor in:

File formats and codecs

Listeners expect high sound quality, but uncompressed and lossless formats take up more space and can take longer to serve.

Device compatibility

You have to be certain your files will work on smartphones, tablets, laptops, or desktops that run on Windows®, Linux, and MacOS®.

Rackspace Cloud Files can help by offering:


Streaming for MP3 audio

Streaming for MP3 audio

Cloud Files supports MP3 encoded audio within the FLV, MP4 and F4F/F4M containers and is compatible with plugins for Flash players like JW Player and Flowplayer.
