Now that you are familiar with the Control Panel and know how to get Fanatical Support through all of our available channels, let's introduce you to an alternative method to using the Cloud Control Panel. The Rackspace Mobile Applications allow you to manage your assets on the go, with most of the same functionality of the Control Panel by using the Cloud Servers and Cloud Files APIs.
They differ in some ways but share several key features.
The iOS application is a bit more full-featured at this time, offering detailed server status information, more file management, and the ability to launch an installed SSH application to connect to a server. Development is active on both versions, however, so look for new functions to be added as time progresses.
Both apps require your Rackspace Cloud API key in order to access your account.
This is the last article in the Rackspace Cloud Essentials Guide 1 - Managing Your Account. In the next guide, we will take a detailed look at Building Your Cloud Inventory with Cloud Servers, Cloud Load Balancers, and Cloud Files.
