Rackspace Volume Create Version 1

This handler creates a server from the Rackspace Cloud. After creating the Rackspace service, the call is sent to Rackspace to create the volume. The handler then returns information about the volume that was just created. Any errors that are encountered will be caughtcand re-raised by the handler.

Note: To find the Rackspace API Key, go to Account Settings and click 'show' next to the API Key label under Login Details.
