Almost lost in the hubbub around Rackspace’s acquisitions of Jungledisk and Slicehost last week was an expanded partnership between Rackspace and Limelight Networks (LLNW). Lydia Leong has some details at CloudPundit :
Under the new partnership, customers of Rackspace’s Cloud Files (formerly CloudFS) service — essentially, a competitor to Amazon S3 — will be able to choose to publish and deliver their files via Limelight’s CDN. Essentially, this will place Rackspace/Limelight in direct competition with Amazon’s forthcoming S3 CDN.
Amazon said in September that it would launch a content delivery network that will deliver files stored on Amazon’s S3 storage service.
