Cloud Files Review by Matthew Sacks

In this post: “Rackspace Mosso’s Cloud Files Review“, Matthew Sacks does a pretty in-depth report on Mosso’s Cloud Files with CDN implementation.

What was interesting was even though the close proximity of LAX to PHX made for impressive response times, serving the images off of CloudFiles provided for still greater response times. In terms of performance, which was a primary focus of my evaluation, CloudFiles gets an A+. Granted, performance was only measured in the United States, in the future I would like to perform some global testing to get a broader view of service performance and availability, but this tends to cost much more for the auditor.
