RightScale to Extend Cloud Management to Private & Hybrid Clouds

Preview of RightScale Platform for the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (Powered by Eucalyptus)

"Cloud computing technology is evolving rapidly, giving users many more choices for where and how to develop, test and deploy applications on the cloud, depending on the level of security, regulatory compliance, scalability and cost savings desired," said Thorsten von Eicken, RightScale CTO and founder.

RightScale has announced that the RightScale Cloud Management Platform will support the global debut of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (powered by Eucalyptus) to help enterprises deploy and manage "private" clouds in their own data centers. Organizations that install the just-announced "technology preview" release of Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, which is released as part of the Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition, will be able to create Eucalyptus-based private clouds on their internal IT infrastructure and can then choose to register them with the RightScale Cloud Management Platform's Free Edition, at no charge. Enterprises will be able to leverage the power of RightScale's Web-based cloud management platform internally, enabling them to begin to experience the power of cloud management for server and storage resources in their own data center, as well as for "hybrid" cloud deployments, which use public and private clouds together.

The RightScale Cloud Management Platform lets any organization tap the enormous power of cloud computing for scalable, cost-effective IT infrastructure on demand, with complete control and portability. By choosing RightScale, Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud users will be able to maximize the cost efficiency and flexibility of their cloud applications by either testing in their own IT environment and deploying on the public cloud, developing on a public cloud and deploying in their own data center, or deploying some applications in a private cloud and some in a public cloud. Through the RightScale Platform, users will be able to view and manage all their clouds - public, private, and hybrid -- with one common interface.

The RightScale Cloud Management Platform will be available for Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud users on Thursday, April 23, when the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (powered by Eucalyptus) will be available for download as part of Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition.

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, at the same time that developers quickly spin up new cloud instances and executives push forwards new initiatives. The vulnerabilities created by migration to the cloud, such as misconfigurations and compromised credentials, require that security teams take a proactive approach, educating employees about the risks of human error. Cloud infrastructure and SaaS applications are some of the most notorious network blind spots, and with insider threat posing such a significant risk, visibility has also never been more important - or more difficult.
