Editor's Notes

  1. RightScale is based in southern CA, Santa BarbaraThe business went global from the start, and we now have offices in London, Tokyo, Singapore, and Seoul
  2. The further you are from cloud, and the less experience you have in it, the few distinctions you can make.Most of our clients are quite close to cloud.
  3. Within the IaaS cloud space, there are a number of major public cloud providers we support.
  4. Lesser known is that many SaaS offers (eg. Dropbox, not one of our clients, but well known) is a SaaS which is built on top of an IaaS.
