RightScale Takes Cloud Expertise to SXSW

Leader in Cloud Management Talks Gaming, Cloud Best Practices and Hosts Graffiti Party

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 8, 2012) - RightScale, the leader in cloud computing management, is taking its cloud knowledge to South by Southwest Interactive in Austin. The company will be participating in two discussions at the conference and is also hosting a cocktail party fit with an indie rock band and renowned graffiti artists.

The cloud is no longer a trend -- it's the way business is done. And with the cloud explosion, RightScale has seen tremendous growth over the past year, including customer and partner momentum. With RightScale, users now have access to 10 public clouds across the globe, and can also build private clouds with the help of three leading private cloud partners. The company has increased the number of registered users per account by more than 80 percent since 2008, and this past fall, reached the three million server milestone.

In the first of two speaking sessions this Saturday, Music Mastermind, a company that produces technology that breaks down the barriers between music creation and expression, will share how they successfully launched their music application on the cloud with RightScale. RightScale will highlight the key differences in clouds and reveal best practices for selecting the right cloud computing infrastructure.

In addition, RightScale is among a panel of top cloud and gaming experts including Zynga, Rackspace, Electronic Arts Online Infrastructure and Bloomberg BusinessWeek, who will discuss how gaming leaders are using the cloud to keep track of in-game player achievements and why the cloud is delivering the scalability they need.

On Monday night, RightScale, in partnership with SoftLayer, the innovation leader in cloud, dedicated, and managed hosting, and the largest privately owned hosting company in the world, is also hosting a cocktail party, including music from Rocketboys, all while Graffiti Artists, Sloke, Ramone Alvarez, Bron, and Theron make a lasting mark on Maggie Mae's!
