Rackspace Launches High Performance Cloud Block Storage Products Powered By OpenStack

Rackspace Hosting announced the unlimited availability of Cloud Block Storage powered by OpenStack. This solution provides a better approach to attached storage in the Cloud by addressing the demand for consistent and reliable performance for file systems, databases or other input/output (I/O) intensive applications. Rackspace’s Cloud Block Storage offers a standard drive option for everyday storage, and a Solid State Drive (SSD) option that delivers even higher performance. Both options feature a transparent, flat pricing structure with no charge for I/O, and are currently available for Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack.

“The Rackspace Cloud Block Storage solution is a crucial piece of our product portfolio. The explosion of data over the past few years has placed greater demands on our customers, presenting them with a variety of new storage related challenges,” said John Engates, CTO of Rackspace. “We developed Cloud Block Storage to deliver consistent performance in the cloud, with infinite scalability and a very simple pricing model that gives customers the flexibility they require to meet their unique business needs.”
