RightScale Announces Support for HP Cloud Services to Deliver Multi-Cloud Management for Enterprises
SANTA BARBARA, CA May 10, 2012 RightScale® Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced the company will offer HP Cloud Services as one of the public cloud choices available for management with RightScale.
The HP Cloud Services public beta is now available for developers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and businesses. RightScale cloud management will provide automation and scalability to easily manage HP Cloud Services infrastructure, while providing customers unified access and choice through one dashboard for public and private clouds. A recent study of RightScale customers found that multi-cloud usage is accelerating among businesses. In fact, 87 percent of compute power managed through the RightScale platform comes from companies that utilize multiple clouds.

“As more enterprises embrace cloud technology, HP Cloud Services provides an important infrastructure choice based on HP’s world-class hardware and software,” said Bailey Caldwell, vice president of business development for RightScale. “Through this alliance, RightScale customers will have access to HP Cloud Services’ superior support and service. In addition, HP Cloud Services customers will have access to RightScale cloud management for rapid onboarding and increased automation at scale.”
Customers will also be able to utilize the RightScale MultiCloud Marketplace, which includes a library of pre-built cloud ServerTemplates™, scripts and architectures published by RightScale, ISV and SI partners. All of the pre-built configurations are fully customizable and provide a variety of solutions ranging from standard application stacks to middleware components to database solutions.
HP Cloud Services is based on HP hardware and software combined with a developer-friendly integration of OpenStack™ Cloud technology. RightScale currently supports six public cloud partners and three private cloud software providers, including OpenStack Cloud, Citrix CloudStack and Eucalyptus to deliver a comprehensive multi-cloud management offering.
