rightscaleRightScale® Inc., a leader in cloud computing management, releases its cloud management service for Microsoft Azure for both Windows and Linux. RightScale is now running a private beta with Windows Azure as one of the public cloud choices available for management with RightScale.


Customers in the private beta program will use RightScale to easily deploy workloads to Windows Azure using automation and dynamic configuration while retaining complete control and governance.

The combination of Windows Azure and RightScale will provide IT professionals and developers a faster on-ramp to the Windows Azure cloud with increased management efficiency. RightScale provides pre-built ServerTemplates™ as a configuration framework to facilitate efficient, automated provisioning and operations on Windows Azure. RightScale supports both Windows and Linux on Windows Azure, offers an out-of-the-box scalable 3-tier .NET deployment, and provides auto-scaling based on application specific custom metrics such as number of SQL Server queries.

RightScale provides global management of the six geographic regions provided by Windows Azure, enabling customers to move workloads among regions and architect for high availability and disaster recovery across regions.
