Detailed Description

This handler creates a server from the Rackspace Cloud. After creating the Rackspace service, the gem searches for the image and flavor objects based on the names inputted as parameters. Once those objects are found, the call is sent to Rackspace to create the server. The handler then returns information about the server that was just created. Any errors that are encountered will be caught and 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.
