RightScale Adds Network Manager to Simplify and Secure Public and Private Cloud
Enterprises Can Now Manage Cloud Networking Across Multiple Clouds
SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/18/13 -- RightScale(R)
Inc., a demonstrated leader in enterprise cloud management, today
launched Network Manager, a new capability in RightScale Cloud
Management that simplifies network management in the cloud, helps
companies improve security and auditing, and makes applications more
easily portable across clouds. Network Manager provides an
abstraction of virtual network resources across cloud providers,
including resources in software-defined networks (SDN), with a common
UI and API to access these resources. Network Manager also includes
Network Map, an interactive visualization tool to help users
understand network topologies and improve cloud security.
RightScale now provides a comprehensive platform to manage compute,
storage, and network across different cloud technologies, enabling
customers to freely choose and migrate among public, private, and
hybrid cloud environments from a single pane of glass.
RightScale Network Manager provides multi-cloud network abstractions
including subnets, security groups, and network gateways to make
applications portable across clouds and to simplify security and
network administration in the cloud. The easy-to-use, powerful
visualization tool aids various professionals in the enterprise,
including those involved with DevOps, networking, IT, system
administration, information security, and software development.
"Private and public clouds increasingly leverage new networking
technologies, including SDNs. Network Manager helps professionals
visualize and audit cloud network histories, improve security, and
manage networks across clouds," said Rishi Vaish, RightScale vice
president of product.
With RightScale Network Manager, enterprise users benefit from:
-- Advanced visualization tools: RightScale Network Manager includes a
new Network Map visualization tool that helps users view ingress rules
across networks. Users can see all network configurations across all
their clouds in one place.
-- Better security and auditing: RightScale Network Manager records audit
entries when anyone makes any network changes. Enterprises can also
set access controls to allow only select users to modify network
configurations. Administrators can see what is in use, by whom, and
within which environments.
-- Faster application deployment and portability: RightScale Network
Manager enables enterprises to use common network configurations,
which allows for fewer errors and faster application portability
across data centers.
