RightScale To Manage and Govern Any Clouds, Any VM and Bare-Metal Servers
RightScale Inc., a demonstrated leader in enterprise cloud portfolio management, today announced the RightScale Universal Cloud Appliance (UCA), a lightweight, software appliance that offers an extensible way to integrate the RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management platform with any infrastructure resource pool - including cloud, virtualized, and bare-metal environments.

RightScale Universal Cloud Appliance enables single-pane-of-glass management of workloads on virtually any infrastructure. New supported environments include:

  • Bare-metal server farms
  • Virtualized environments such as KVM and Hyper-V
  • All clouds previously not supported by RightScale such as vCloud Air and Digital Ocean

"RightScale enterprise customers use a wide range of infrastructure options, from existing virtualized and bare-metal datacenter environments to a variety of public and private clouds," said Kim Weins, VP of Marketing at RightScale. "Now our enterprise customers can use RightScale across any infrastructure that they run - any cloud, any VM, any server - by leveraging the Universal Cloud Appliance. RightScale customers will get a single point for visibility, control, monitoring, cost tracking, reporting, automation, and more."

RightScale UCA is delivered as a software appliance that can be downloaded and run on any server that has connectivity to the target resource pool. UCA provides a variety of out-of-the-box capabilities that can be leveraged to manage individual servers and a plugin model allows for RightScale, partners or customers to extend the functionality to include provisioning new resources on any platform. Combined with the RightLink agent, UCA enables a broad set of management, monitoring and governance capabilities.

The RightScale Universal Cloud Appliance is currently available in Early Access.
