SANTA BARBARA, Calif., July 31 -- RightScale Inc., a demonstrated leader in enterprise cloud management, today formally launched a suite of consulting services, called RightScale CloudSight and Expert Advisor, aimed at helping enterprise customers develop and implement cloud strategies.
RightScale CloudSight offers professional consulting that helps companies define a cloud roadmap, assess their application portfolio, design cloud architectures, and build implementation plans. CloudSight leverages years of RightScale experience implementing some of the largest and most complex enterprise cloud deployments, deep understanding of the major cloud providers, and a proven methodology for driving business value from cloud adoption.
The RightScale Expert Advisor program taps RightScale experts to comprehensively inspect existing RightScale implementations to ensure cloud best practices. Clients get contextual findings and actionable recommendations for running cloud deployments at peak efficiency, saving costs, adapting variable traffic, and preparing for small- or large-scale cloud outages.
The recent RightScale State of the Cloud Report categorized cloud users based on their levels of cloud adoption. The survey found that companies reported more benefits and fewer challenges with expanded adoption of cloud computing. For example, the survey showed security to be a significant challenge for 38 percent of Cloud Beginners, but only 18 percent of the experienced, Cloud Focused, respondents. RightScale CloudSight is designed to help enterprises quickly move along the cloud learning curve and realize greater benefits from the cloud.
"As the complexity around cloud adoption grows, larger enterprises require partners that have the expertise to successfully align cloud strategies with business objectives," said Daniel Moore, Vice President of Services at RightScale. "We are launching RightScale CloudSight and Expert Advisor in response to increased demand for our help driving strategic cloud initiatives that leverage a portfolio of public and private clouds."
