Rackspace Cloud Servers is VPS—only better.
Pay only for what you use, with hourly billing for server instances and per-gigabyte pricing for outgoing bandwidth. This gives you the flexibility to grow your infrastructure as your business grows—rather than over- or under-provisioning. There's no contract and no long-term commitment. Learn more about pricing.
In minutes, you can add load balancers, databases, storage, monitoring, and DNS as a service layer to your stack–so you can say goodbye to complex manual configurations and multiple, overburdened servers. Plus, since the services run alongside your Cloud Server, rather than on it, you can keep your Cloud Server size smaller, which can reduce costs.
Cloud Server sizes are measured by the amount of physical memory reserved for your instance and range from
256MB up to 30GB.
Note: Windows® Cloud Servers cannot be resized down.
Choose from a variety of popular 64-bit Linux® distributions (Ubuntu®, Debian®, Gentoo™, CentOS, Fedora™, Arch Linux™, and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®) or Windows images (Windows Server® 2008). You can also add a SQL Server® 2008 R2 database to your Windows image.
Using our online control panel and API, you can upgrade or remove your Cloud Servers as your needs change. And you'll always have full control, with root access. You can even manage your Cloud Servers on-the-go via your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® touch, and Android™.
