RightScale enables Rackspace customers to manage and automate their Cloud Servers, Managed Cloud Servers, and Managed Hosting infrastructure. RightScale provides Rackspace cloud management through proven and resilient architectures, powerful scaling and automation tools, and a single pane of glass to give you visibility across Rackspace regions and interoperability between Rackspace and other public and private clouds.
Manage Across Regions
ServerTemplates™ work across Rackspace US and UK, meaning fewer configurations to manage.
Organize Your Instances
Using deployments to group servers together — for example, development, test, and production — keep large environments organized.
Launch & Scale in Context
With dynamic inputs and modular RightScripts™ and Chef recipes, your Rackspace instances are immediately functional — for instance, registering with a load-balancing pool or beginning database backups to Cloud Files.
Stage Entire Environments
RightScale gives you a way to stage Rackspace instances before launch or after termination, persisting configuration and monitoring data and enabling one-click disaster recovery and testing environments.
With a range of load balancer, app server, cache server, and database ServerTemplates, RightScale can get you up and running quickly with Rackspace cloud management.
Link to Public & Private Clouds
Create a cohesive hybrid cloud environment for backup, disaster recovery, geographic diversification, performance enhancement, or cost optimization.
“When we moved to the cloud, we chose RightScale and Rackspace because the two companies give us the solution to deliver on our performance requirements. We use RightScale to easily manage our Rackspace servers and rely on its tremendous power to automate our processes.”
