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.
OpenStack Object Storage (code-named Swift) is open source software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of standardized servers to store petabytes of accessible data. One of the most successful implementation of OpenStack storage is RackSpace CloudFiles and HP Cloud.
How CloudBerry Backup supports OpenStack and Rackspace Cloud Files
The integration work as seamless as it could. You just choose the account of your favorite Cloud Storage provider on the backup plan wizard.
The rest works just as if you were using another cloud storage provider.
How to find Rackspace storage API keys
Login to your Rackspace Cloud Control Panel and click API Access.
You may need to enable API Access. Now just copy the Username and the API Key onto account registration dialog in CloudBerry Backup (see the screenshot above). You can specify whatever you want for the Display Name.
