This article answers those questions through a comparison of Azure and Rackspace. Continue reading
Rackspace and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are two of the biggest names in cloud computing. Founded in 1998 and 2006, respectively, they are also among the longest-established cloud hosting companies.
The service offerings of Rackspace and AWS don’t compete in all respects. Rackspace’s main business centers on virtual servers and cloud storage, as well as managed services. AWS provides infrastructure offerings, too, through EC2 instances. However, AWS also has a broader set of services, such as serverless computing and hosted Kubernetes. Rackspace’s offerings are not as broad in this respect. Continue reading

Some OpenStack-based cloud storage service providers have multiple services that can deal with data, kept within the cloud storage. To transfer data between different services are used internal networks of datacenters. In most of cases data transfers within one datacenter are off charge while interactions with the outside data are paid.
For managing internal data transferring, cloud storage providers allow attaching internal (private URLs) for users’ data. CloudBerry Explorer
PRO for OpenStack supports internal URLs and allows moving, copying and modifying data inside of the OpenStack-based cloud storage. It makes it easier to move data within the internal network of cloud storage with no need to pay for ingoing and outgoing traffic.
CloudBerry Lab constantly works on enhancement of our products. Today we are happy to introduce support for OpenStack regions
in CloudBerry Explorer for OpenStack
– a file manager that allows creating, browsing, modifying and deleting files and containers on any OpenStack-compatible storage.
Now users of OpenStack-based cloud storage services can specify a region in which their data will be stored. It means that you can specify a region for any container within RackSpace, HP Cloud, CloudWatt and other OpenStack-based cloud storage services that have multiple regions.
