RightScale and GoGrid Partner to Deliver Multi-Cloud Management, Windows-Based Cloud Solution for the Enterprise


New York (PRWEB) September 17, 2008

As part of its industry-leading cloud computing product and partner initiative, RightScale, Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced a partnership with GoGrid, a next-generation cloud infrastructure provider that specializes in load balanced cloud servers and complex hosted virtual server networks. The two companies will work together developing product and service offerings for organizations that want to take advantage of the two companies’ products and expertise: GoGrid’s expansive cloud infrastructure where it hosts critical business applications in a highly scalable, secure, fault tolerant environment, and RightScale for its best-in-class automated cloud management platform and services.

RightScale has hundreds of thousands of instances deployed via Amazon’s EC2, and another new partnership announced this week with UK-based FlexiScale. The company is able to take customer applications and deploy and manage them across multiple clouds, offering the ultimate in flexibility, scalability and pay-as-you-go capabilities provided by the RightScale Dashboard. The customer always has as much control, or as little, as they want. RightScale manages the rest so customers can focus on their own core business needs.

“With RightScale’s cloud management platform, customers will have a true multi-cloud solution and the ability to deploy their applications across several clouds, not having to lock in with a single vendor – and we have excellent partners, starting with Amazon and continuing with GoGrid,” said Michael Crandell, CEO of RightScale. “GoGrid brings a track record of customer service and platform expertise with Windows Server and Linux, as well as application-specific synergy with Ruby on Rails. We look forward to working closely with them as this nascent market takes off.”

“We see a lot of growth happening in the enterprise sector of the cloud computing market, starting right here in the Silicon Valley, which is one reason GoGrid has support for Windows Server 2008,” said GoGrid CEO, John Keagy. “It’s also a big reason we’ve expanded from traditional hosting to include a cloud architecture – customers want more flexibility, and that “right now” scalable capability that GoGrid and RightScale provide. For the scalability, features and capabilities companies can now get at the price point of a cloud solution, there’s really no reason for not jumping in with both feet.”

GoGrid also delivers portal controlled servers for Windows 2003 and 2008, multiple Linux operating systems and supports application environments like Ruby on Rails. GoGrid is unique in cloud computing with the availability of 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2008; and was named winner of LinuxWorld 2008 “Best of Show” in August. Together, GoGrid and RightScale will provide joint cloud solutions that are elegant and bring power, control and scalability to business customers.

Deploying scalable, reliable applications from scratch in a multi-cloud world is a time consuming and expensive task. As a result, most organizations do not have the expertise or resources to deploy and manage cloud computing applications cost effectively and according to best practices. With RightScale’s platform, any organization can easily tap the enormous power of cloud computing for a virtually infinite, affordable, “pay-as-you-go” IT infrastructure. RightScale’s offerings provide rapid deployment, a dynamically scalable infrastructure to meet varying traffic and loads, and require minimal resources using automated tools and a centralized web dashboard for easy management backed by best practices and professional services.

The first joint solution between RightScale and GoGrid will be available in Q4 2008. For details on pricing and different product options, call RightScale, Inc. at 1-866-720-0208, email sales@rightscale.com, or visit http://www.rightscale.com/products/.

RightScale First to Deliver Integrated Management for Multi-Cloud Environments


Interop New York Conference Expo (PRWEB) September 17, 2008

RightScale, Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced a major new strategic product and partnership initiative as it broadens its cloud management platform to support emerging clouds from new vendors, including FlexiScale and GoGrid, while continuing its long-standing support for Amazon’s EC2. RightScale is also working with Rackspace to assure compatibility with their cloud offerings, including Mosso and CloudFS. RightScale will be the first in the industry to offer an integrated management dashboard, where applications can be deployed once and managed across these and other clouds.

Businesses can take advantage of the nearly infinite scalability of cloud computing by using RightScale to deploy their applications on a supported cloud provider. They gain the capabilities of built-in redundancy, fault tolerance, and geographical distribution of resources – key enterprise demands for cloud providers. With RightScale, customers can leverage the leading cloud management platform to automatically deploy and manage their web applications – scaling up when traffic demands, and scaling back as appropriate – allowing them to focus on their core business objectives. RightScale’s automated system management, pre-packaged and re-usable components, leading service expertise and best practices have been proven as best-of-breed, with customers deploying hundreds of thousands of instances on Amazon’s EC2.

“Cloud computing is a disruptive force in the business world because it provides pay-as-you-go, on-demand, virtually infinite compute and storage resources that can expand or contract as needed,” said Michael Crandell, CEO of RightScale, Inc. “A number of public providers are already adopting cloud architectures – and we also see private enterprise clouds coming on the horizon. Today’s announcement of RightScale’s partnerships with FlexiScale and GoGrid is an exciting indication of how mid-market and enterprise organizations can really take advantage of multi-cloud architectures. There will be huge opportunities for application design and deployment — we are at the beginning of a tidal shift in IT infrastructure.”

FlexiScale is the only UK-based cloud computing provider and offers a unique infrastructure on demand with 99.99% SLA and many special features. For example, each customer gets their own virtual disk so that data is segregated and they can do their own low level encryption, while virtual network traffic is also segregated to deliver added security. FlexiScale uniquely offers permanent on demand storage and was the first cloud provider to support Windows. With a strong reputation for customer service, it also enables the creation of custom packages such as golden images.

Tony Lucas, CEO of XCalibre and creator of FlexiScale commented: “Without this new ability to move swiftly and easily between platforms, customers could feel locked in and much more hesitant to try and use cloud computing. RightScale’s partnership initiative is a great example of how having near interoperability between systems will enable customers to be less hesitant of moving to a new technology, which is great for everyone. It means the industry can and will grow quicker than if it was only a handful of individual companies providing distinct services that weren’t compatible with each other.”

GoGrid offers hosted cloud computing infrastructure that enables system administrators, developers and IT professionals to create, deploy, and control load balanced cloud servers and complex hosted virtual server networks. GoGrid also delivers portal controlled servers for Windows 2003 and 2008, multiple Linux operating systems and supports application environments like Ruby on Rails. GoGrid is unique in cloud computing with the availability of 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2008; and was named winner of LinuxWorld 2008 “Best of Show” in August. Together, GoGrid and RightScale will provide joint cloud solutions that are elegant and bring power, control and scalability to business customers.

“Cloud computing for the enterprise has arrived with the GoGrid and RightScale partnership,” said GoGrid CEO, John Keagy. “Corporations now have few excuses not to, and multiple reasons to deploy and manage complex and redundant cloud infrastructures in real-time using the GoGrid, RightScale, and FlexiScale technologies.”

Rackspace Hosting provides IT systems and computing-as-a-service to more than 33,000 customers worldwide. Combining RightScale’s technologies with Rackspace’s focus on Fanatical Supportwill allow companies to focus on their business and not a disproportionate amount of resources on IT demands.

Deploying scalable, reliable applications from scratch in a multi-cloud world is a time consuming and expensive task. As a result, most organizations do not have the expertise or resources to deploy and manage cloud computing applications cost effectively and according to best practices. With RightScale’s platform, any organization can easily tap the enormous power of cloud computing for a virtually infinite, affordable, “pay-as-you-go” IT infrastructure.
