This item in japanese

Today, developers and system administrators may download Rackspace Cloud 2.0 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch from the Apple App Store.   The new universal iOS application allows developers and admins to manage their Rackspace Cloud deployments as well as customize OpenStack Clouds.

In this new application release, users now have the ability to access their Rackspace Cloud  and Cloud Files through the same interface.   

With this app, we fully implemented everything in the API, explains Mike Mayo, Senior Developer of Mobile Apps for Rackspace Hosting.  The best use for this is if you are a sysadmin controlling resources on our cloud. Get this app and something like iSSH, and then you have everything you need to [manage your Cloud Servers].

Rackspace Cloud 2.0 is open source and part of the OpenStack project, the foundation of the Rackspace Cloud.  The source code to the OpenStack iOS app is available here. .
