Cloud and managed hosting provider SoftLayer Technologies and cloud computing management company RightScale are currently developing the ability to manage and deploy SoftLayer cloud computing services through the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. This will allow users to automate and manage their toughest computing workloads utilizing the RightScale platform on SoftLayer’s cloud infrastructure.
Customers will be able to choose and deploy workloads on SoftLayer’s global cloud infrastructure based in the US, Europe and Asia with RightScale Cloud Management. RightScale’s Cloud Management Platform provides pre-built ServerTemplates for faster cloud on-boarding and automation capabilities for increased efficiency. Users will also get access to the RightScale MultiCloud Marketplace that includes pre-built cloud Server Templates, scripts and architectures published by RightScale, ISV and SI partners.
SoftLayer’s cloud servers leverage the company’s proprietary network architecture and can be managed through a single Customer Portal and API providing a high level of efficiency, control and scalability. RightScale gives customers the ability to manage SoftLayer public and private cloud workloads with portability across private and public clouds.
“SoftLayer has created an impressive cloud offering with a truly global service. We look forward to the partnership, supporting their growing cloud services and global rollout,” said Michael Crandell, co-founder and CEO of RightScale. ”RightScale is committed to supporting major cloud infrastructure providers such as SoftLayer and offering the highest caliber of management solutions for their customers.”
