RightScale Adds Network Manager to Simplify and Secure Public and Private Cloud Networking

Enterprises Can Now Manage Cloud Networking Across Multiple Clouds

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/18/13 -- RightScale® Inc., a demonstrated leader in enterprise cloud management, today launched Network Manager, a new capability in RightScale Cloud Management that simplifies network management in the cloud, helps companies improve security and auditing, and makes applications more easily portable across clouds. Network Manager provides an abstraction of virtual network resources across cloud providers, including resources in software-defined networks (SDN), with a common UI and API to access these resources. Network Manager also includes Network Map, an interactive visualization tool to help users understand network topologies and improve cloud security.

RightScale now provides a comprehensive platform to manage compute, storage, and network across different cloud technologies, enabling customers to freely choose and migrate among public, private, and hybrid cloud environments from a single pane of glass.

RightScale Network Manager provides multi-cloud network abstractions including subnets, security groups, and network gateways to make applications portable across clouds and to simplify security and network administration in the cloud. The easy-to-use, powerful visualization tool aids various professionals in the enterprise, including those involved with DevOps, networking, IT, system administration, information security, and software development.

"Private and public clouds increasingly leverage new networking technologies, including SDNs. Network Manager helps professionals visualize and audit cloud network histories, improve security, and manage networks across clouds," said Rishi Vaish, RightScale vice president of product.

With RightScale Network Manager, enterprise users benefit from:

  • Advanced visualization tools: RightScale Network Manager includes a new Network Map visualization tool that helps users view ingress rules across networks. Users can see all network configurations across all their clouds in one place.
  • Better security and auditing: RightScale Network Manager records audit entries when anyone makes any network changes. Enterprises can also set access controls to allow only select users to modify network configurations. Administrators can see what is in use, by whom, and within which environments.
  • Faster application deployment and portability: RightScale Network Manager enables enterprises to use common network configurations, which allows for fewer errors and faster application portability across data centers.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
