Performance Server

This new kind of server, will be give with two volume disk. One the system disk and the other is the data disk.
Rackspace suggest some things

vyatta vrouter

It's possible change the default behavior of rackspace, instead to connect the server directly to the network with public ip address is possible use this particularly rackspace server called vyatta like router firewall vpn system.

from the command line it is a bit like the cisco ios command line. I think that the amazon web interface is more simple to understand and use. I avoid this solution it's to complicated

api rest
