RightScale, Inc. Key Developments

RightScale(R) Inc. to Extend Cloud Management and Analytics to VMware vSphere(R)

RightScale(R) Inc. announced the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere that integrates RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management and the VMware vSphere(R) virtualization platform. The company's users will be able to leverage RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management to manage vSphere resources through a new, lightweight, on-premise RightScale virtual appliance. With the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere, IT teams can choose whether to deploy workloads to VMware vSphere or any of the leading public or private clouds already supported by RightScale, and will be able to create portable workloads that can move seamlessly between cloud environments and VMware vSphere. Using RightScale, enterprises reduce vendor lock-in and enable infrastructure teams to manage cloud-based workloads from a single pane of glass. Benefits of using the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere include, single pane of glass across cloud and vSphere environments: Using RightScale, enterprises can enable infrastructure teams to manage cloud-based workloads - including major public clouds, vSphere environments, and OpenStack and CloudStack-based clouds - from a single pane of glass. Enhanced vSphere environments with cloud-like capabilities: Cloud environments offer additional capabilities that go beyond the functionality of virtualized environments like vSphere. The RightScale Cloud Appliance adds cloud-like capabilities that expand and streamline access to vSphere. The appliance provides multi-tenancy governance on top of vSphere to allow automated, policy-based sharing of vSphere resource pools by multiple tenants. It also adds standardized instance types to enable developers to quickly pick from a preconfigured set of infrastructure options. Self-service access across cloud and virtualized environments: vSphere environments have traditionally been controlled, configured, and managed by IT. With the RightScale Cloud Appliance, new types of users such as application developers, software architects, and DevOps teams will be able to leverage RightScale to deploy and move workloads across cloud and vSphere environments according to the policies set by IT teams. Leveraging vCenter and RightScale in parallel: RightScale does not lock users into one management solution. Users can leverage RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management and VMware(R) vCenter Server(TM) in parallel. For example, developers can leverage RightScale to deploy workloads in vSphere, while VMware administrators can leverage vCenter. Reduced vendor lock-in: RightScale ServerTemplates(TM) are dynamic configuration scripts. They provide portability for workloads across vSphere environments and public and private clouds. Unified reporting and analytics: With RightScale Cloud Analytics users can visualize usage and spending across vSphere data centers as well as other clouds. Cross-environment professional services: RightScale experts can help enterprises deploy and optimize application portfolios across vSphere virtualized environments as well as public and private clouds. The company offers support for vSphere 5.1 and 5.5 is currently in limited availability. The RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere is expected to be generally available in the second quarter of 2014.

RightScale, Inc. Announces Cloud Analytics

RightScale, Inc. announced RightScale Cloud Analytics, the first multi-cloud cost management solution that integrates with a cloud management platform to enable users to take action on insights and implement budget controls. Cloud Analytics is a new enterprise-grade cost management solution from RightScale that provides sophisticated cloud usage and cost analysis as well as forecasting and scenario planning across major public and private clouds. Cloud Analytics is integrated with the RightScale Cloud Management platform, providing a mechanism for enterprises to quickly execute optimizations to their cloud portfolio. Together, RightScale Cloud Management and RightScale Cloud Analytics comprise the first in a new category of applications, cloud portfolio management (CPM), that provides an integrated solution to manage applications and optimize usage across a portfolio of public and private clouds. With RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management, enterprises can easily deploy applications in any cloud and seamlessly move applications between clouds in order to meet technical requirements or optimize costs. Key things to know about Cloud Analytics: Integration with Cloud Management: Cloud Analytics offers tight integration with RightScale Cloud Management to close the loop between technical management of applications and optimization of cloud usage and costs. Cloud Analytics can be purchased separately or bundled with Cloud Management. Multi-Cloud Visibility: Cloud Analytics provides visibility into usage and costs across public and private clouds. Users can slice and dice costs by cloud, application, department, and team; and drill down to lists of individual servers so that technical teams can take action. Forecasting and Scenario Planning: Cloud Analytics provides sophisticated forecasting that combines current usage and historical trends with growth patterns based on your business plans and expectations. Users will be able to define alternate scenarios to evaluate projected costs based on different clouds, instance sizes, regions, or reserved instance purchase options. Cost Optimization: Cloud Analytics enables users to identify waste and find opportunities to reduce costs with reserved instances or alternate purchase options. Based on insights from Cloud Analytics, companies can implement enterprise budget controls using RightScale Cloud Management. Governance: Cloud Analytics incorporates enterprise-grade access controls to enable different users to access information relative to their roles and responsibilities.
