Understanding Cloud Files¶
The Rackspace Cloud Files storage system provides a secure, network-accessible way to store an unlimited number of files. Each file can be as large as 5 gigabytes.
You can store as many files as you want and only pay for the storage space you actually use.
Cloud Files also provides a simple yet powerful way to publish and distribute content behind a content delivery network (CDN). As a Cloud Files user, you get access to this network automatically.
Cloud Files enables you to store and retrieve files and CDN-enabled content through a RESTful (Representational State Transfer) web services interface. There are also language-specific APIs that use the RESTful API and make it easy for integration into your applications.
