RightScale Webinar: 4 Ways to Supercharge AWS with Cloud Management


Published on

Amazon Web Services cloud functionality has been integrated with RightScale longer than any other cloud infrastructure, and we’re still always working to make the AWS / RightScale cloud management combination the best solution possible for AWS users.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how we make this possible as we demonstrate how to:

- Forecast cloud costs: We’ll demo PlanForCloud, a new tool that gives you the ability to model deployments and usage patterns across multiple clouds including AWS.
- Increase visibility: Gain insight and control over your complete AWS environment, across regions and availability zones and across AWS accounts.
- Organize your AWS environment: Organize your deployments by region, by app, by staging/production, or by department and team. Create a clean, logical view to manage your deployments.
- Lifecycle management from cradle to grave: Learn about core RightScale functionality that gives you the power to organize, clone, and deploy entire systems at the click of a button. We’ll also discuss how RightScale makes life easier in an emergency such as a security breach or when an availability zone goes down.
