Rackspace launches system administrator app

Ian Grant

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.

Simply selecting and saving the choices spins up the configuration in seconds, or minutes if it’s a Microsoft environment.

Admins can do the following from their smartphones or iPads:

List all Cloud Servers in their rackspace account

  • Create new Cloud Servers (including from any existing backups)
  • Delete Cloud Servers
  • Resize Cloud Servers
  • Perform Hard and Soft Reboots
