re: Rackspace Adds Block Storage, Answers Amazon
Making the platform comparable to Amazon and Microsoft is smart marketing and foreseeing growth potential and preparing for it rather then reacting to it. Rackspace sounds like they know what they are doing and are going to be expanding its client base due to the new release. Rackspace's quicker availability by storing the commonly used files and applications makes it a wiser choice that and combined with the lower costs should be a successful release. Does it cost anymore to add/remove the extra storage on the fly or is that a standard feature?
