Mosso Adds Storage Service to its Hosting Stack

Mosso, the cloud hosting service from Rackspace, will today debut a file storage service called CloudFS. The new service will compliment Mosso’s flagship end-to-end cloud hosting, the Hosting Cloud, which we reviewed in February, by providing unlimited, scalable storage. Mosso provides a more managed approach to cloud hosting services than some of its competitors, but CloudFS is a standalone API-based service comparable to Amazon’s S3.

Developers will be able to store files on the CloudFS services — which will be accessible only via ReSTful API and language-specific APIs — whether or not they are using Mosso’s Hosting Cloud. Like S3, CloudFS is a pay-for-what-you-use service that can be used in conjunction with hosting services from any provider (including Amazon’s EC2).

“CloudFS is the next step in our overall mission to provide the industry’s most flexible and broadest range of hosting options — from traditional complex managed hosting to cloud compute solutions,” said Mosso co-founder Jonathan Bryce in a press release.

CloudFS launches today to a limited number of customers in free private beta. The private beta will last until the third quarter of 2008, at which time the service will open in a public beta. The target price at the time is $0.15/per gigabyte.
