Rackspace Cloud Pro 1.1.1
Mobile Cloud Control Panel for iPad
Rackspace Cloud Pro is an iPad app published by Rackspace that offers an alternative to the web control panel at manage.rackspacecloud.com. It offers most of the functionality of the Cloud Servers API and some of the functionality of the Cloud Files API. Some key features include:
There are two new features in 1.1.1:
Configurable API Endpoints
On the login screen, there are now three fields: user name, API Key, and Authentication API Endpoint. The endpoint defaults to the US endpoint: https://auth.api.rackspacecloud.com/v1.0. UK Cloud users should change this to https://lon.auth.api.rackspacecloud.com/v1.0.
In the Settings section of the app, there is now the option to turn on Chef Integration. With this enabled, users will be able to provide a Chef run list when creating a Cloud Server, and the server will automatically install Chef on itself and attempt to install and configure its software based on the run list.

Rackspace Cloud Pro 1.1.1 is the last version of the iPad app before version 2.0, which will be a universal app for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
