Go Android, Go Mobile: Manage Your Rackspace Cloud On-The-Go

It’s an anytime, anywhere world – and you should be able to easily manage your Rackspace Cloud on the go. To help you do that, we’ve refreshed and retooled our Rackspace mobile app for Android. Now you can create and manage first and next generation Cloud Servers wherever you are from your Android-powered smartphone.

And now we’re being more Fanatical in how we approach the app and support – it’s been built to provide an easy-to-use experience backed by the support and performance that you’ve come to expect from us.

The Android app is available now via Google Play.

Here’s what’s new in the Android app: the Android app for the Rackspace Cloud now supports our next generation Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack. It features an optimized user interface to make it easier for you to find exactly what you’re looking for. And we’ve resolved the issues that had caused the application to crash, so performance is enhanced.

Additional features include the ability to manage multiple accounts; reboot, rename, resize and rebuild servers; change root passwords; check system status; ping servers from multiple data centers; and call Rackspace support directly from the app.

We’re also cooking up a number of cool features that will be available soon that will give you more capabilities and support options through the mobile app. Stay tuned for more details. To get started, download the application now: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rackspace.cloudmobile.

    I tried to install it but it says it’s not available in my country! I’m in Argentina.
    Why is that?

    • Hi Diego,

      Thanks for contacting Rackspace about this problem. It might take a few hours from now in order to show up in Google Play, but the application is now enabled in Argentina. Let us know if you’re still having problems finding the application.

      Thank you,

    Its also not available to install on Android Tablets. Will that be possible in the near future?

    • Hi Mark,

      Thank you for your question on Android Tablets. We are definitely thinking about tablet support in the near future.

  • If such an app, is also available for Windows Phone then, I would definitely consider to buy hosting from Rackspace for few of my sites!

    Please enable this app in Lithuania, thanks.

    • Hey Tomaz,

      Great to hear from you! It should be enabled now. It may take Google Play a couple hours to update though.
