RightScale(R) Inc. Announces the General Availability of the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere

RightScale(R) Inc. announced the general availability of the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere, which enables organizations to give developers fast, self-service access to VMware vSphere(R) resources and create portable workloads across vSphere, Amazon Web Services (AWS)(TM), Google Compute Engine(TM), Microsoft Azure(TM), OpenStack(TM), and other clouds. First announced in beta in December 2013, the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere allows RightScale users to leverage vSphere resources through a new, lightweight, stateless on-premise appliance that sits behind a corporate firewall. It securely communicates to the vSphere environment in the data center and to the RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management solution, which provides customers self-service, cloud analytics, and cloud management. Self-Service Access to vSphere Environments: vSphere environments have traditionally been controlled, configured, and managed by specialized administrators within IT. With the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere, new types of users such as application developers, DevOps teams, and other cloud users can use RightScale to deploy, manage, and move workloads across cloud and vSphere environments according to the policies set by IT. Providing developers with self-service access to vSphere through RightScale reduces repetitive, manual provisioning tasks for virtualization teams. At the same time, vSphere administrators can continue to leverage familiar vCenter tools in parallel with RightScale for their administration needs. Cloud Portability Across vSphere, AWS, and Other Clouds: RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management includes a multi-cloud platform that enables application portability across vSphere and clouds. With the RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere, RightScale customers create portable workloads that move seamlessly between cloud environments such as AWS and VMware vSphere. This reduces vendor lock-in and enables use cases such as leveraging hybrid environments for different stages of the development lifecycle, providing failover among different clouds, and supporting cloudbursting. Single Pane of Glass Across Cloud and vSphere Environments: RightScale Cloud Appliance for vSphere provides enterprise infrastructure teams with a single plane of glass for visibility, governance, and management of workloads running in vSphere and cloud environments -- including AWS, Azure, Google, Rackspace, HP, IBM, OpenStack, and CloudStack. Using RightScale, central IT teams can view all workloads across the organization, enforce policies, access audit trails, and manage costs. Growing Demand for Hybrid Cloud: In the RightScale 2014 State of the Cloud Report, 74% of enterprises say that they have a hybrid cloud strategy and more than half of those are already using both public and private cloud. In addition, a high percentage of companies with more than 1,000 employees reported that they were using VMware. 52% view their vSphere environments as a private cloud. The full results of the survey are available in the RightScale 2014 State of the Cloud Report at
