Talking to RightScale about “myCloud” and their work with Zynga

Earlier this week at CloudExpo, I talked to both Peder Ulander of and Rich Wolski of Eucalyptus about their involvement with RightScale‘s myCloud solution.  Yesterday I thought I would go straight to the source so I got a hold of RightScale’s VP of business development, Josh Fraser.

Besides the myCloud announcement, Josh also told me about their work with Zynga.  Zynga, as detailed in a recent InformationWeek article, has a hybrid cloud model.  Zynga uses the Amazon public cloud to test new games and then if the game is a hit and when its demand has leveled off, they pull it back into their Z-cloud private cloud.  RightScale manages across the two clouds.

Some of the ground Josh covers

  • What is RightScale
  • [0:26] Their myCloud announcement, widening their focus beyond public clouds to include private and hybrid.  Who they’re partnering with, what myCloud is composed of and their free version.
  • [2:38] Working with Zynga, managing across both Zynga’s private Z-cloud and the public cloud they use at Amazon.
  • [4:09] Working with Amdocs who is running enterprise grade workloads in a private cloud managed by RightScale.
