The SoftLayer global datacenter network coupled with RightScale gives you a single dashboard to manage your global infrastructure resources. RightScale enables easy provisioning, configuration, monitoring, automation, and governance of applications running on SoftLayer CloudLayer Compute, SoftLayer Private Cloud, and other public and private cloud environments.
Manage Across Data Centers
ServerTemplates™ work across SoftLayer data centers, meaning fewer configurations to manage.
Automate Provisioning and Operations
Use customizable pre-built RightScale ServerTemplates™ for dynamic configuration, auto-scaling, and script execution.
Launch & Scale in Context
With dynamic inputs and modular RightScripts™ and Chef recipes, your SoftLayer instances are immediately functional — for instance, registering with a load balancing pool or beginning database backups to CloudLayer Object Storage.
Stage Entire Environments
RightScale gives you a way to stage SoftLayer 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, the MultiCloud Marketplace™ can get you up and running quickly.
Link to Public & Private Clouds
Create a cohesive hybrid cloud environment for backup, disaster recovery, geographic diversification, performance enhancement, or cost optimization.
The combination of RightScale and SoftLayer has made our cloud environment more robust and simplified our deployment process, enabling us to automatically scale to meet customer demands. With this solution, we have lowered our costs and increased our redundancies allowing us to quickly react to massive influxes of new traffic as our games spread extremely rapidly to new players.
