I am working on getting all my client files moved from VPS server to Rackspace Cloud Files. Since there is about 2 GB to be transferred, I am looking for a good tool to perform the task.

One way to get this done would be to use Rackspace API and write a script to read from the location and create/upload files to Rackspace Cloud.The problem being that the script times out, plus this does not seem like a browser task.

Is there a tool / script which could be used to 'read' from a particular local/remote folder and create a container with the same folder name and transfer files from the folder to relevant container.

Thanks for your time

It's not browser task, you have to run the script in CLI.But if you have no access to CLI, then just add those 2 lines in the beginning of the script:


Another solution is to move files in chunks (for example 5 files per run), performing a redirect to the same script after each upload


Try the Enterprise Cloud Backup Tools from SMEStorage.com Its on their Cloud Tools page here.

I use this with RackSpace UK but it also supports RackSpace US.
