Rackspace has launched an app that allows a CIO or system administrator to dial up or take down servers and storage moment by moment.
Hardware costs, ranging from a penny to 83p an hour are billed to the company credit card. Software pricing is more complicated, especially for virtualised SQL applications, the company said.The app gives the CIO a range of choices of hardware and operating environment.
