In a prior life I was a server administrator, and I spent countless hours building, configuring, and fixing Windows servers. When I learned about Rackspace’s new Android app, which one can use to create new cloud servers, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the idea that what I once spent so much time doing can now be done in a matter of minutes and in the palm of your hand. Of course, you have to have an account with Rackspace in order to use the application, and this is not the type of app that the average person is going to find useful, but I am sure anyone responsible for maintaining servers with Rackspace will find it to be a very useful application. While Rackspace just released their Android app, their iPhone app has been available for some time, and you will find it in the iPhone App Store.
