UPDATED: RightScale drives enterprise Cloud adoption in Australia

Announces support for new Rackspace Cloud in Australia

Enterprise multi-Cloud management vendor, RightScale, has partnered with managed hosting company, Rackspace, to integrate the RightScale Cloud management platform with support for the Rackspace Australian Cloud.

RightScale Asia-Pacific director, Giri Fox, said the RightScale integration to the Rackspace Australian Cloud provides customers with a full-featured management framework which includes automation, auto-scaling, monitoring and reporting of Cloud deployments.

Fox mentioned that the deal was made because in Australia and across Asia, enterprises are working with RightScale to integrate Cloud benefits into their IT strategies with a focus on hybrid Cloud architectures.

“The Australian Cloud market continues to mature and RightScale provides the enterprise-grade management platform, professional services and integrated support to help IT organisations succeed,” RightScale Asia-Pacific director, Giri Fox, said.

“Australian enterprises are looking for ways to bridge traditional enterprise IT with Cloud computing, and RightScale delivers this with a combination of governance, DevOps, and automation.”

His claim is supported by a recent study the company conducted, which found that companies of all sizes continue to adopt Cloud computing – larger organisations are choosing multi-Cloud (77 per cent) with the majority of those (47 per cent) choosing hybrid Cloud strategies.

It also found that 61 per cent of those organisations already running apps in public Cloud, 38 per cent are in the private Cloud and 29 per cent in the hybrid Cloud environment.

Fox also told ARN RightScale’s integration is beneficial for partners that want to add new Cloud offerings to their existing services or strengthen existing Cloud initiatives.

It provides them with the ability to offer a hybrid Cloud management platform which includes Rackspace’s local datacentre, with options to deliver to both local and global customers.
