An ideal platform for simple sites and common Linux and Windows frameworks like Wordpress, Joomla, or .NET Store Front.
Simply put, cloud computing is a set of pooled computing resources delivered over the Internet. The Cloud delivers a hosting environment that doesn't limit an application to a specific set of resources. Depending on the platform, an application can scale dynamically and increase its share of resources on-the-fly.
The Cloud can quickly scale to thousands of servers to make resources available as they're needed. Rackspace Cloud hosting customers never need to worry about buying new hardware to meet increasing traffic demands or huge traffic spikes.
