      Reviews of DigitalOcean Block Storage and Rackspace Cloud Files
      Review ofRackspace Cloud FilesRackspace Cloud Files

      We use Rackspace Cloud Files to host static assets ( js/ css / some media ) and we're really liking it.

      tbh we use it because of the ability to serve files from Akamai CDN. You get the worlds best CDN server for a fraction of the cost.

      To conclude, it might not be as cheap as S3 , but if you care about files being served at the fastest way possible then Rackspace Cloud Files is the way to go.
