RightScale Webinar: Rock Your SoftLayer Cloud with RightScale


Published on

Let us show you how the combination of RightScale and SoftLayer provides super fast on-boarding, automation and multicloud capability for running your apps.

SoftLayer CloudLayer® Services bring you cloud servers, storage, and content delivery built on SoftLayer's longtime leadership in automated, on-demand data center services. Couple that with RightScale cloud management for automation, management and auto-scaling and you’ll spend less time and effort setting up and operating your web application and more time focused on your core business.

RightScale enables easy provisioning, configuration, and automation of both hybrid and multi-datacenter environments. With SoftLayer and RightScale, resilient and highly available architectures are more affordable than ever.

In this webinar we’ll demonstrate the benefits of using RightScale to manage SoftLayer CloudLayer Computing. We’ll cover:

- Configuration of CloudLayer servers using RightScale pre-built ServerTemplates™

- Management of multiple servers into organized groupings called deployments

- Automation features such as auto-scaling using monitoring and alerts and scripts to automate routine backups and updates

- Governance including user permissioning, auditing events and tracking usage
