Cloud Storage Manager vs Rackspace Cloud Files: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cloud Storage Manager as "Gain insights in to your Azure Storage Consumption". Azure storage consumption is growing at an incredible pace, even faster than originally predicted. Organisations have an ever-growing data footprint and are therefore eager to take advantage of Azure and it’s limitless supply of storage and resources. However, as an organisation’s storage requirements grow, it’s easy to lose track of where all the storage is being consumed, which also means your Azure Blob storage cost keeps going up often causing cost blowout With Cloud Storage Manager you will be able to instantly see where all your storage is going, allowing you to take back control and save money.. On the other hand, Rackspace Cloud Files is detailed as "Store it on Cloud Files, serve it fast on Akamai's CDN". Cloud Files, powered by OpenStack®, provides an easy to use online storage for files and media which can be delivered globally at blazing speeds over Akamai's content delivery network (CDN).
