Rightscale – Calculating the TEI for Enterprise Cloud Computing

ccn2A new partner welcomed to the CBPN community is Rightscale, one of the market leaders of a Cloud Management Platform.

We will be showcasing various use case scenarios where and how Rightscale could be applied, including how it can be used to implement the ‘Canadian Hybrid Cloud’ model that we describe in the Canadian Cloud Buyers Guide.

As the diagram shows Rightscale can be used to automate across public Clouds but also Private ones too, such as those based on Openstack or Cloudstack.

If this Openstack is implemented locally in Canada and consumed via a Hybrid Cloud design, then it can be thought of as a Canadian version of this particular Cloud best practice.

The value of the Rightscale technology can be highlighted by the fact that it can be used equally for these national Cloud providers and Private Clouds, as well as for global public Clouds like Amazon et al. For example they recently worked closely with Google to launch their IaaS product called Compute.

As explained on our partner page Rightscale can be used to calculate a ‘TEI’ (Total Economic Impact) report for these scenarios, a way of planning the business and financial benefits to your organization by migrating your IT to these providers.

The post Rightscale – Calculating the TEI for Enterprise Cloud Computing appeared first on Cloud Computing Best Practices.
