Rackspace Cloud Files

During my time at [company not disclosed], one of my development projects involved the integration of Rackspace Cloud Files into a CodeIgniter application. The integration code was amazingly simple due to the PHP Library provided by the developers at Rackspace. Applying Rackspace Cloud Files, on the other hand, was a bit more involved than expected.

A CodeIgniter Library was developed to define how the Cloud Files objects and containers should be used within the CodeIgniter application. Several different projects on several different servers were able to integrate with the Cloud Files, and therefor share various files. The result was a secure, yet flexible cloud based file system.
