Jungle Disk now with Cloud Files support

Jungle Disk, one of the services I use for cloud storage, now has Cloud Files support. Previously, it only supported Amazon S3, which made the sign up process a bit cumbersome. You had to sign up for your own Amazon S3 account before you are able to use the Jungle Disk service.

I just signed up for a Cloud Files account a couple of days ago because I wanted to try it out with Jungle Disk. However, after updating my Jungle Disk to the latest version, it never prompted me for my Cloud Files account when I created a disk based on Cloud Files. Apparently, it’s already integrated to your Jungle Disk account. I guess this is because Jungle Disk is now under Rackspace owner of Mosso, provider of the Cloud Files service.

There are some caveats though with regards to the Cloud Files integration though. There seems to be no clear way of tracking how much space you’re using on Cloud Files since you’re not using a personal Cloud Files account. Also, migrating your files from an S3 disk to a Cloud Files disk requires you to manually copy from service to service (which I am doing now). They are developing a service for data migration but can’t give a timeframe as to when it will be available.
