Cloud SaaS

by CBR Staff Writer| 01 March 2013

RightScale is a management vendor overseeing machines operating in public clouds.

Google has appointed RightScale as its first reseller to provide a streamlined and fully supported path for its cloudy CPUs-for-hire service, Compute Engine.

The company will assist with private clouds and manage virtual machines between the public and on-premises rigs.

The appointment of Rightscale will also allow its users to include Google in their cross-cloud considerations, which would allow them to use the computing power of the Google cloud.

Users can also automate and customise the build-up, operation, and break-down of several types of workloads, from on-demand data analysis clusters, to batch processing, to 3-tier web apps built to precise customer requirements.

Additionally, users can also buy Google Compute Engine services directly from RightScale and leverage on-boarding and support services from the company's professional services team.

The addition of Compute Engine to Rightscale allows matching clients' workloads to the most appropriate cloud.

Rightscale's roster currently includes AWS, Azure, HP, Rackspace and others.

The collaboration will also offer custom solutions developed for industry verticals that include Advertising, Media, Entertainment and Gaming.
