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.

DXWorldEXPO Digital Transformation Stories
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
