Rackspace Unveils Mosso CloudFS Storage Service

Rackspace Hostings Mosso®, the companys cloud hosting division, today announced plans to launch a new Internet-based storage offering, CloudFS, that will let developers store any amount of data on the Web more easily and reliably than ever before. CloudFS joins Mossos flagship service, The Hosting Cloud, and complements Rackspaces comprehensive suite of hosting products including its Mailtrust Email Hosting solution and the companys traditional managed hosting services. CloudFS will be available to a limited number of customers in a free private beta for testing and refinement until Q3 2008, when it will open for public beta.

This is great news for Rackspace who up to now have been a reluctant entrant in the cloud computing market. I hope this is just one of many more announcements you'll be hearing from Rackspace in the coming months as they ramp up their cloud offerings.
