Today, Rackspace Hosting announced price reductions for their Content Delivery Network and Cloud Bandwidth services, as well as new pricing tiers for their open cloud portfolio. The company went live with one of the new price levels today, and will continue to discount services throughout 2013.
“[…] This simple and straightforward pricing approach is a key part of how we help customers take advantage of the real value of the Rackspace Open Cloud, particularly for the next generation of bandwidth and content-centric web applications, which must deliver quality user experiences on a mobile and global basis,” said John Engates, Chief Technology Officer at Rackspace, in a press release today.
In particular, Rackspace activated discounts for their Cloud Files service, which is part of their open cloud portfolio. As of today, pricing will be at $0.10/GB for the first TB, and will decrease to $0.075/GB as more storage is added. On March 1, Rackspace customers will also see a price reduction for their CDN bandwidth from $0.18/GB to $0.12/GB. The company will still allow users to have I/O and API requests at no additional charge. For more information about the new pricing tiers released today, please refer to the Rackspace blog.
