A few months back the company that I work for, Rackspace Hosting, began offering a product called “Cloud Files” through one of our subsidiaries, Rackspace Cloud.  It’s a CDN method for distributing files via the Internet.  You upload your files to the “Cloud Files Container” (I’m using Cyberduck), and it gets propagated into Limelight Network’s CDN.

A lot of my customers are asking questions about using Cloud Files, so I figured I’d give it a try and see how it works!  A few minutes ago, I uploaded my very first file to the Cloud.  It’s a 1.1MB high-resolution satellite image of Washington D.C. taken during President Obama’s inauguration.
