RightScale has built a cloud management juggernaut. Not a conversation goes by with customers, partners, and vendors in the cloud ecosystem without a mention of what the team there is doing to move the cloud industry forward.
RightScale customers can add a variety of public clouds, and add their own on-prem private clouds as well. One of my goals for 2012 was to make sure there was a first-class, RightScale enabled, API-based service offering at Datapipe to take advantage of this great ecosystem.
And now its available.
If you have a Stratosphere account, and a RightScale account, you can now follow these directions to enable RightScale with Datapipe Stratosphere cloud:
How did we do it? Well, we enhanced our cloud platform with CloudStack, which allows our customers to connect our cloud to RightScale. That is a big generalization - there was obviously loads of work under the covers to enable this in 5 global data centers.
But there is nothing like making the complex seem simple, businesses can now get access to Datapipe’s premium network and support offerings using the same cloud mechanics they’ve been using for the rest of their cloud portfolio.
