RightScale Cloud Computing Management Extended to Rackspace Offering Based on OpenStack

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2011) - RightScale® Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced its selection as a Technology Partner for the Rackspace® Cloud: Private Edition, an OpenStack™-powered cloud backed by Rackspace managed services and support. RightScale's participation further expands its partnership with Rackspace and continues its strategy of supporting multiple hybrid cloud solutions for the enterprise. RightScale Cloud Management is already available for the Rackspace Public Cloud and with this announcement, customers of the Rackspace Cloud: Private Edition can extend their use of RightScale as a single cloud management solution across all of their Rackspace cloud deployments -- public, private and hybrid.

Rackspace Cloud: Private Edition is a new option for enterprise IT departments looking to build production clouds with OpenStack, by leveraging open source software, published reference architectures and ongoing help running the cloud from Rackspace. RightScale has been involved in the OpenStack project since its inception and believes the community has made significant strides to become a leader in the cloud IaaS market. With RightScale Cloud Management, new Rackspace Cloud: Private Edition customers will have the ability to manage a hybrid cloud through a 'single pane of glass' for faster on-boarding, full-featured automation, comprehensive management and ease of moving workloads across private and public clouds.
