Rackspace Debuts Cloud Block Storage Powered by OpenStac

Rackspace Hosting introduced a new Cloud Block Storage service powered by OpenStack.

Rackspace is offering a standard volume option for everyday storage.  The company said performance has been tested to be at least 30% less variable than that of alternatives.  The new product’s Solid State Drive (SSD) volume option has also been tested to deliver even higher performance, 5x to 6x faster than competing solutions.

Both options feature a transparent, flat pricing structure with no charge for I/O, and are now available for Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack.

Standard – $0.15 per gigabyte per month; SSD – $0.70 per gigabyte per month
$.10 per gigabyte per month for snapshot data stored
