RightScale International Sales Increased 250 Percent in 2010

Santa Barbara, CA., January 11, 2011 -- RightScale, Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced that in 2010 the company's international sales grew by 250 percent over the previous year, with international customers now accounting for nearly 30 percent of overall sales. The company's international customer base and presence expanded significantly last year, with new RightScale offices opening in the United Kingdom and Singapore, and a number of major systems integrators and distributors focused on markets throughout Asia-Pacific, Europe and India joining RightScale's growing global ecosystem of partners.

"2010 was a critically important year for RightScale and the industry. Companies around the globe increased their use of cloud computing resources across the enterprise for everything from high-traffic websites to data-intensive scientific research to software testing," said Michael Crandell, RightScale CEO. "We moved into the international market in a significant way last year to address the strong worldwide demand for cloud management. We now have customers in over 30 countries worldwide, as well as international resellers, systems integrators, and other global partners."

RightScale headquarters are in Santa Barbara, California, and the company now has dedicated offices in London and Singapore. In addition, Kumoya is an authorized RightScale distributor for the Japanese market.

A growing number of global systems integrators and managed hosting providers are now making RightScale's cloud management solutions widely available throughout the world. RightScale SIs focused on international markets now include CSS Corporation, Hitachi Solutions, SCS Corporation, and Capgemini. Datapipe, with international datacenters in London, Hong Kong and Shanghai, now also serves as a global managed hosting provider of cloud services using RightScale as its preferred management platform.

"RightScale has become the de facto industry standard cloud management platform, and it is a clear choice for managing our clients' cloud environments," said Steven Lack, senior vice president of Managed Infrastructure Services at CSS Corp, a global information and communications technology company with 20 locations worldwide. "RightScale's support for public and private clouds in multiple geographic regions is a huge benefit, as it gives our global clients the flexibility of using a local cloud for reduced latency and helps them adhere to country-specific regulatory requirements."

The RightScale Cloud Management Platform provides full support for public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) in multiple geographic regions as well as Rackspace Cloud. RightScale also supports public and private clouds based on Eucalyptus and technologies.
