When it comes to television shows, it’s hard to find one more quotable than The Simpsons.
Based on your feedback about our virtual Cloud Servers, one thing is clear: the more flexibility you have in defining your infrastructure, the better. So today, we’re adding two new workload-optimized flavor classes to our Cloud Servers lineup that allow you to create servers that meet your specific compute and memory requirements. The new servers allow you to define storage completely separately from compute – they boot exclusively from Cloud Block Storage.
Now you can boot Performance 1 and Performance 2 Cloud Servers from a network attached volume in Cloud Block Storage. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits you get when you use this feature:
Starting today you can create copies of existing Cloud Block Storage volumes from the Control Panel with Volume Cloning.
We launched Cloud Block Storage into unlimited availability a year ago and we now have thousands of customers using the product. The team that designed Cloud Block Storage wanted to create a different kind of block storage in the cloud. When we spoke with our customers about what they wanted in a cloud block storage solution, the feedback focused on three areas:
Performance, or more precisely, the lack of performance, is an invisible cost in your architecture. It is a tax you have to pay by having to overprovision resources in your cloud design to match a given workload. A hybrid cloud gives you the flexibility to choose from different performance profiles to fit your application needs, from dedicated to shared cloud resources, and across its evolution from small endeavor to large mission critical app.
We recently launched Rackspace Cloud Block Storage, a reliable storage solution for even the most demanding I/O-intensive applications.
Since Cloud Block Storage is a relatively new product offering at Rackspace, I thought it might be helpful to give you three best practices as you start using it with your cloud configuration.
At Rackspace I have worked on both the Cloud Files and the Cloud Block Storage systems. Sometimes people get confused between the two products, so I want to explain the differences.
In my previous post, I talked about what Cloud Block Storage is and the need to expand the storage for your Cloud Servers. We offer several options for your Cloud Block Storage drives and today I hope to help you find which one is right for you.
