Rackspace Cloud Servers can connect to Cloud Files without accruing bandwidth charges when the server and the Cloud Files account are in the same data center. This connection is made by using the internal IP address that your server comes with on the internal Rackspace network, ServiceNet.
If you are not familiar with Cloud Files, see the product information.
To view or download the Cloud Files API documentation, go to the Cloud Files Developer Guide. You can also access the documentation and some code samples from the Cloud Files Quick Start. Code samples are available for PHP, Python, and Java.

You can locate your Cloud Server data center in the following ways:
