One of the core offerings of the cloud hosting division of Rackspace is Cloud Servers. Cloud Servers features on-demand cloud storage and servers. To learn more about Cloud Servers technical features and pricing information, see http://www.rackspacecloud.com/.
Use the RightScale Management Platform for additional server configuration capabilities with Cloud Servers.
Launching and terminating plain instances from the 'Clouds' menu in the Dashboard is supported.
ServerTemplates using Rackspace images have limited support. There are a number of resources that are Amazon-specific which are taken as assumptions in current ServerTemplates. As new ServerTemplates are published, they will be designed with cross-cloud compatibility in mind.
Currently when designing MultiCloud Images, Rackspace images cannot be added. The workaround is to import an existing ServerTemplate from the MultiCloud Marketplace that contains an MCI with a Rackspace cloud image, then override the machine image on the server with a supported machine image (below).
Currently, these listed images are compatible with Rackspace and are supported and tested for use with RightScale servers, ServerTemplates, RightScripts and Chef recipes. This image currently bootstraps RightLink 5.1.1 (via installation of the rightlink Debian package). Other images will be supported in future releases with later versions of RightLink.
At this time, there are several RightScale published ServerTemplates available in the MultiCloud Marketplace for use with Rackspace. For a tutorial with a Rackspace compatible ServerTemplate, see All-In-One LAMP Server.
To report any bugs related to RightScale and The Rackspace Cloud, please raise a support ticket from the Dashboard or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
