Use Cloud-Ready Microsoft Technologies
Running Windows in the cloud poses a lot of challenges. At RightScale, we have developed a set of solutions that are both easy to get started with and powerfully customizable. RightScale offers a range of Windows-based ServerTemplates™ in our MultiCloud Marketplace™, including SQL Server, IIS, .NET, and Active Directory. Every RightScale Windows ServerTemplate™ includes a set of PowerShell scripts for setting up common monitoring and alerts, MultiCloud Images™ that reference the latest supported images and clouds, and examples of system-required input variables. And best of all, they are fully supported by our services and support teams.
- The IIS ServerTemplate includes Windows MultiCloud Images and a set of scripts for IIS administration, monitoring, database discovery, and load balancer registration. Power production .NET applications by pairing the IIS ServerTemplate with the HAProxy ServerTemplate or with your favorite cloud load balancer.
- Using the Active Directory Server Template, deploy a new Active Directory Forest in minutes, easily providing a centralized authentication and authorization store to your applications.
- The RightScale Database Manager for SQL Server is a complete, automated, high-availability setup for SQL Server. High-availability automation is achieved with Powershell-based RightScripts™ for database mirroring, backups, authentication, encryption, data transfer, and failover. In addition to the comprehensive list of Windows monitoring metrics provided in our ServerTemplates, additional SQL Server-specific metrics are included.
Windows-based ServerTemplates can be fully customized with RightScripts written in PowerShell. Powershell-based RightScripts run locally via RightLink™, our agent, and allow for software installation, administration setup, custom monitoring, backups, and more. RightScale provides built-in Windows OS, SQL Server, and IIS monitoring using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). Customize your own OS or application-specific monitors using WMI and graph them in the Dashboard.
