LogicMonitor Delivers First Comprehensive Monitoring Solution for RightScale Cloud Management Users

LogicMonitor and RightScale Integration First to Completely Automate the Configure-Deploy-Monitor Cycle for Managed Cloud Deployments -- From Physical Devices, to Application, Including Storage and Networking

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2012) - LogicMonitor, the leading SaaS-based IT infrastructure monitoring solution for physical, virtual, cloud, and hybrid environments, today announced a partnership agreement with RightScale© Inc., the leader in cloud management. This agreement provides RightScale users a comprehensive, automated monitoring solution for managed cloud deployments -- from bare metal, to application, including storage and networking -- including public, private and multi-cloud/hybrid clouds -- that can also span their premises-based infrastructure.

"RightScale excels at simplifying and automating cloud management and deployment. LogicMonitor's SaaS-based monitoring solution excels at simplifying and automating complete IT infrastructure monitoring, regardless of where that infrastructure lives," said Kevin McGibben, CEO of LogicMonitor. "When you put the two together, you have one incredibly powerful offering for any organization managing all or part of their technology infrastructure in the cloud."

The automation and multi-cloud management provided by RightScale gives users the freedom to "choose their own cloud" and work with any combination of cloud vendors and technologies, including Rackspace, Amazon EC2, Eucalyptus, and, as of June of this year, Windows Azure and Google Compute Engine. Hundreds of pre-configured ServerTemplates™ enable RightScale users to spin up cloud-ready servers within a few minutes; also available are automated scripts -- RightScripts™ -- which allow users further push-button fine tuning of their cloud servers.

The LogicMonitor partnership enables RightScale users to instantly and automatically add new servers into the client's LogicMonitor portal as they come online, or a RightScript can be run on any live managed server to instantly add it into monitoring. Users will then be able to monitor, manage alerts, and view dashboards and reporting for the new server, alongside their entire IT infrastructure -- whether cloud-based, on premises, or some mix of the two -- in a single pane of glass.

"With RightScale, customers take advantage of best practice ServerTemplates and RightScripts to spin up new servers quickly and efficiently -- across private and public clouds," said Bailey Caldwell, vice president of business development for RightScale. "Now, with the newly added LogicMonitor RightScripts, RightScale customers can increase their monitoring and alerting capabilities for new servers, and in one unified monitoring solution that enables instant visibility across their entire infrastructure."
