Microsoft and Google put RightScale on a Roll
Guess who benefits when two industry giants compete with each other offering exactly the same set of services? It is RightScale! While the Cloud ecosystem is still recovering from the euphoria of witnessing Microsoft and Google launch IaaS, RightScale is busy porting their ServerTemplates to both the Public Clouds. They are in an enviable position where every new IaaS provider wants to be a part of their platform. This is not a common phenomenon that we see in the industry. RightScale saw the opportunity pretty early in the cycle and got into the game much ahead of the time and that seems to pay off now! It’s not just Microsoft and Google, even HP partnered with RightScale much before they entered into the public beta in May. RightScale now has an impressive portfolio of supported Public Clouds and Private Clouds that includes AWS, Rackspace, SoftLayer, Tata, OpenStack, CloudStack and Eucalyptus.
