  • Good morning and welcome to our webinar, Creating Agile and Automated IT Infrastructure in the CloudMy name is Betsy Zikakis, I’m the VP of marketing at RightScale. Before we get started we’d like to ask you a couple of questions. The results will help us calibrate our discussion to better meet your needs. 1. What is your experience using the cloud… (use standard poll)2. What has your experience been using machine images to configure servers? on a scale from 1 worst to 10 best… how easy has it been for you to:Create new machine imagesTroubleshoot problemsExecute routine maintenancePort machine images to alternative infrastructureThank you!
  • With me presenting today are: TvE, CTO and RightScale founder; as well as David Welch one of our Sales Engineers.We also Hunter Williams answering questions online. As we go through the webinar, please feel free to ask questions at any time. You can enter any questions into the questions panel at the bottom of the Go To Meeting control panel. For the ones that are applicable to a broad audience, we open them up for live discussion at the end.
  • Here’s what we have planned for you today… After a quick introduction to RightScale,Thorsten will talk about why and how to RightScale your existing images and then we’ll see in a demo how easy it actually is. The Darryl and Raphael will walk us through the RightLink Technology and show another demo of Rightlink in action. We’ll wrap up with a live Q&A, but please go ahead and start asking your questions. We’ll take the more broadly applicable ones and open them up for discussion with the speakers at the end.
  • For those of you who don’t know RightScale, we have been helping customers manage their cloud deployments for over 3 years. Today, we have more than 20,000 users and have launched over 800,000 servers in the cloud. Our customersvary in size and industry – from large multi-national media, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, to online gaming and Web2.0 startups. RightScale is available on demand, so you don’t need to purchase any software, and we have a trained professional services team ready to help you learn more about RightScale and cloud computing, architect and deploy your applications, and help you when you encounter problems.
  • For our customers, the cloud starts with RightScale.Our Platform helps them deploy and manage their applications in the cloud by providing a layer of abstraction from the underlying cloud infrastructure. The RightScale Platform operates with an ever-growing list of public cloud infrastructure providers including Amazon and Rackspace and public or private clouds built with Eucalyptus or Vmware’svCloud Express. The platformoffers a fast on-ramp with proven, cloud-ready solutions; improves productivity and agility by delivering management tools and automation; and it offers complete transparency and user administration to keep you in control at all times. If you need to migrate to a different cloud for any reason, RightScale ensures your applications are portable.
  • Need to create demo script with Raphael
  • Darryl – background, RL as a product, Raphael will show some of the advanced automation…
  • Darryl – spice it up on WindowsAnnounce Windows BetaWalk through What Will Be Available (but not future)Raphael to Demo Automation“We will also be making a RightLink installer available for Windows2003 so that you can enable your existing Windows 2003 virtual machines.” (Build #1)

      What is a Server?
      Software configuration -> what to install, how, where
      Hardware resources -> cpu, memory, disk, network, …
      Data -> data files produced over the server’s lifetime
      Power of the cloud: hardware resources are plentiful, flexible
      The config and the data are key
      The hardware can be turned off, upgraded, downgraded, replicated, etc.

      Static
      Not cloud-portable
      • Slow sysadmin workflow
      • 14. Not cloud-agile
      Modular & flexible
      Reproducible & maintainable
      Dynamic & agile
      Multi-cloud enabled
      • Dev-like workflow

      What does it take to RightScale-enable an image?
      Install RightLink Agent# rpm -i rightscale_5.3.0-centos_5.4-i386.rpm-or-
      Rebundle
      Tag the image as RS-enabledprovides:rs_agent_type=right_link
    • 19. RightLink on Linux install Demo
      Import RightLink Starter ServerTemplate
      Switch ServerTemplate to use your image and launch
      Site waits for RightLink to start (server shows “booting”)
      Manually install RightLink and start
      mkdir /etc/rightscale.d;echo ec2 > /etc/rightscale.d/cloud;rpm –i http://mirror.rightscale.com/rightlink/5.3.0/centos/rightscale_5.3.0-centos_5.4-i386.rpm;tail -f /var/log/messages;
      Result: Full-fledged server with monitoring & automation
      Rebundle for future launches

      Q&A - Getting Started
    • 26. Thank You!
    • 27. Building a clean RightScale-Enabled Image
      Reproducible, audited, clean, never-booted
      Image building methods:
      Getting started: ad-hoc method may be most expedient
      Going to production: better have clean-room in place…
      • Public ServerTemplates available to automate clean-room builds
    • Options to RightScale-enable …
      Option 1: Got an image already? Use ad-hoc method
      Install RightLink, test, rebundle, done
      Option 2: Building a clean-room image?
      Start with RightScaleImageBuilderServerTemplates
      Customize software install
      Run, test image, iterate
      Option 3: Save work&trouble: use a RightImage
      Images built by RightScale, thousands of launches a day
      Add your software using ServerTemplate
