Cloud.com Powers RightScale's myCloud Private Cloud Offering

Cloud.com, a provider of open source cloud computing software, today announced it has partnered with RightScale to deliver the private cloud infrastructure software for its newly released myCloud product. As part of the offering, Cloud.com is providing enterprises with a powerful, full turnkey private cloud solution that delivers pay-as-you-grow economics and can be launched in minutes by leveraging existing on-premise hardware to quickly build a private cloud.   

“Private and hybrid cloud computing are definitely the next frontier and as a company we need to ensure our technology is paired with other leading technologies that allow users to easily build, deploy and manage their own clouds,” said Sheng Liang, founder and CEO of Cloud.com. “Cloud.com’s implementation of RightScale myCloud service dramatically simplifies enterprise private cloud deployment and operation. Enterprises can manage their on-premise computing resources using the same RightScale interface and easily migrate workload between on-premise private cloud and public cloud services like Amazon EC2, Rackspace Cloud and Tata InstaCompute Services.”   

The Cloud.com implementation of the RightScale myCloud is the simplest and fastest way to build a private cloud within any organization.   

Instant private cloud, just add hardware

A key inhibitor to private cloud deployments is the complexity associated with architecting, configuring and deploying a cloud within an enterprise data center. Following a simple download from Cloud.com, organizations can install myCloud on local servers, connect them to the hosted CloudStack Management Server, and realize a fully deployed and automated private cloud in under 30 minutes. Once deployed, organizations can instantly offer Amazon-like cloud services within the controls of their own data centers.   

Simple private cloud operations

The Cloud.com implementation of myCloud gets you started with a hosted CloudStack Management Service at no cost. This hosted service helps customers manage the operations of the underlying hardware infrastructure. With the myCloud-enabled infrastructure connected to the hosted Cloud.com management server, core elements like networking policies, security groups, load balancing and high-availability services are automatically provisioned and managed.   

Hybrid cloud-ready

myCloud deployed on a Cloud.com private cloud has instant access and interoperability with some of the world’s leading public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Rackspace Cloud and Tata Communications InstaCompute. Managing multi-cloud workloads from the RightScale management interface, customers can easily extend their Cloud.com private cloud to a hybrid operation, enabling instant capacity-on-demand through cloud-bursting out to public resources, or workload portability between clouds to support application availability and business requirements.   

"Private clouds are an attractive option for organizations that want to take advantage of cloud benefits inside the corporate firewall, and myCloud is our vision for the future of how private and hybrid clouds will be deployed within an enterprise," said Michael Crandell, CEO at RightScale. “We have a proven history of delivering successful clouds with Cloud.com and we’re excited to be working with them on delivering a new solution that enables the rapid deployment and management of a myCloud private cloud within any organization.”
