RightScale Webinar: Build a Better Way of Delivering IT for Increased Choice and Flexibility

762 views

Published on

RightScale and Rackspace have integrated cloud solutions to provide IT with a new way to build and manage business applications by leveraging a hybrid IT model.

Join this webinar to understand how you can build a hybrid IT model with our joint technologies – combining the benefits of public cloud with the security and performance of dedicated environments. A hybrid IT model can bring organizations agility and long-term cost savings.

We’ll cover the following discussion topics:

- How companies can build a cloud architecture to orchestrate commodity hardware and software into a resilient internal enterprise cloud
- Considerations for mixing and matching public, private and hybrid clouds
- How to enable your IT team to become a service provider in your own datacenter coupled with public cloud

We’ll do a live demonstration with RightScale’s Cloud Engineer Ryan Geyer who will showcase how he set up a Rackspace private cloud powered by OpenStack – all in his garage! Ryan will then show how he connected his private cloud to his Rackspace cloud servers and created a hybrid cloud – all managed through RightScale’s unified dashboard. We’ll dive into how to design your hybrid cloud to configure, deploy and manage applications on public cloud and private cloud infrastructure.

Check out this webinar to understand how to automate, manage and connect all your clouds.
