A few months ago we had the opportunity to take on a project that would bring Rackspace Cloud Files together with SharePoint web sites. This would be in the form of a SharePoint 2013 app where you would have the ability to log into your Rackspace Cloud account and have access to your cloud storage. Since file collaboration and sharing is in high demand, we also wanted to give you the ability to share files stored in your cloud storage with other people — regardless of whether or not that person has access to the SharePoint site. This would be a step toward facilitating collaboration between SharePoint and non-SharePoint users.
