RightScale Reports More Customers Using Multiple Clouds

Santa Barbara-based company says clients experience better application performance and other benefits

More businesses are using multiple cloud providers and cloud types, according to Santa Barbara-based cloud computing company RightScale.

The company announced Tuesday that 87 percent of its customers are leveraging multiple clouds — public, private and hybrid — to boost application performance, improve business continuity, streamline disaster recovery and reduce cost.

A private cloud allows individuals to create a cloud-like architecture out of their own data centers. RightScale enables unified access and transparency across supported clouds; it acts as a “universal remote” through the RightScale Dashboard or RightScale API, according to a news release.

“The rise of our customers’ multi-cloud usage correlates with the sophistication of the deployments they are running in the cloud,” RightScale CEO Michael Crandell said in the release. “It’s amazing to see the performance, resilience and agility our customers are achieving today using the RightScale platform in coordination with our world-class service provider partners spanning 10 distinct global geographies.”

RightScale recently partnered with Equinix, which will give customers additional multi-cloud capability.

“We design for failure as a core principle at Coupa since customers expect 100 percent up-time irrespective of whether our product is hosted on the cloud or in a data center,” said Sanket Naik, Coupa cloud operations and integrations director. “RightScale multi-cloud support enables us to transparently host Coupa on public clouds such as Amazon and Rackspace or a CloudStack-based private cloud while delivering high availability and data privacy compliance.”

Amazon also reached a deal with Goleta-based cloud computing company Eucalyptus Systems last week to help customers move their workloads between an internal private cloud and the Amazon Web Services public cloud.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
