Rob Carr, Integration Engineer at RightScale, led this session at the RightScale User Conference 2010 in Santa Clara.

Session Abstract: Enterprises that are required to keep physical control of infrastructure but want the benefits of public cloud elasticity are driving the development and adoption of private cloud technology. This session covers the emerging private cloud phenomenon and how RightScale allows you to leverage your existing infrastructure in new and exciting ways. We'll discuss the fundamentals of private cloud architectures, clarify how RightScale ServerTemplate technology drives value within private clouds, and demonstrate a hybrid cloud deployment in action.

  • The RightScale ServerTemplate methodology supports creating and re-using many of the same components through out the lifecycle. Let’s look a little more closely at how it does that. A ServerTemplate defines the software stack and behavior of a provisioned cloud server. ServerTemplates can be combined to create deployments that describe and launch entire environments. Each ServerTemplate contains a base machine image and a set of scripts. Typically, the base machine image installs both the operating system and the lightweight RightScale agent, RightLink, which enables and manages communication with the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. After the server boots up using this machine image, RightScale runs all the startup scripts specified to install the required software. While the server is running, the systems administrator is free to run any of the operational scripts through RightScale. And, when the user terminates the server, termination scripts are used to gracefully shut down the server.ServerTemplates reference re-usable scripts. Because both the ServerTemplates and the scripts are version controlled, and because deployments can be cloned and archived, any changes are easily tracked and propagated. These features provide all the power a systems administrator needs to easily manage, maintain and reproduce multiple environments.
