Rackspace users rejoice! As part of our new “Covered by Cloudability” program, every single one of Rackspace’s 175,000 users can now track unlimited Rackspace cloud spending for free on Cloudability. Why? Because, just like us, Rackspace understands that folks need to know what they’re spending and avoid any surprises.
In GigaOM’s coverage, Rackspace CTO John Engates explains, “We want them to know where their money is going; we don’t want them to see the Cloud in a negative light. There are a lot of parallels in personal life — a trend to monitoring your usage of electricity and other utilities. The only way to [start reducing] spending is to be able to look at the numbers.” And we couldn’t agree more. You can read the whole story on GigaOM.
