Companies are searching for a way to transform their existing investments in virtualization to provide the benefits of private cloud services. For many organizations, this means leveraging VMware® vSphere® environments and expertise. However, vSphere and other virtualized environments are not equivalent to cloud. They lack key cloud capabilities, and access is typically limited to a small number of trained administrators. IT teams want to deliver ‘true’ cloud services across public and virtualized resource pools.
To help you cloudify your virtualized environments, RightScale has developed a lightweight virtual software appliance that integrates RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management and the VMware vSphere virtualization platform. With this appliance, IT teams can leverage RightScale as a single pane of glass to manage applications across vSphere environments as well as leading public and private clouds. In this webinar we focus how you can:
• Enhance vSphere with cloud-like capabilities
• Provide self-service access across cloud and virtualized environments
• Create portable workloads that operate across vSphere and public and private clouds
• Access unified management, reporting and analytics across public clouds and virtualized environments


With the RightScale Cloud Appliance, you can ‘cloudify’ your vSphere environments for increased agility while reducing vendor lock-in.
