Cloud Management: Equinix & Rightscale Partner

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Management for a variety of cloud hosting platforms is provided for thanks to a partnership between cloud solutions provider RightScale and data center company Equinix. The solution is aimed at IT and service providers and was unveiled on Tuesday by the companies in a press release.

Rightscale senior vice president of business development Josh Fraser talked about what makes the solution unique. “Unlike other offerings, this partnership allows IT teams and service providers to increase the speed and reliability of delivering comprehensive cloud environments, particularly for those organizations with high data security and compliance needs or for those looking for increased performance for specific applications,” Fraser commented.

Specifically, the platform allows the solution’s administrators to manage a variety of cloud solutions (such as public, private & hybrid) with consolidated management from RightScale’s myCloud. Meanwhile, the companies already have some high profile companies as cloud partners including Amazon Web Services, SoftLayer and Rackspace.

As a company, Equinix operates data centers throughout countries including the United States, Brazil and Canada. Just last week, it was revealed that Equinix would be partnering with Digital Realty Trust to construct a 64 thousand square foot data center in Dulles, Virginia for Carpathia Hosting.
