RightScale goes Transcloud

Over the weekend, Maureen O’Gara of SYS-CON media reported that RightScale is now offering a “first in industry” capability to provide application management across multiple cloud infrastructures. It now offers application deployment options on Amazon EC2, GoGrid and Flexiscale. For mission critical applications, this capability could provide enhance fault tolerance and what I would call “cloud redundancy”. When I’ve discussed cloud deployments with some Government customer, they have cited concerns about vendor lock-in. While this cross cloud capability doesn’t really address that issue immediately, it does give hope that, in the near future, many vendors will be offering transcloud hosting solutions. According to their website, RightScale is also “working with Rackspace to assure compatibility with their cloud offerings, including Mosso and CloudFS”.
