SANTA BARBARA, CA and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- RightScale® Inc., the leader in cloud computing management today, announced their expansion into Australia. The entry into the Australian market will provide local sales, support and professional services for the RightScale cloud management platform.
RightScale will bring its expertise in cloud computing to Australian companies looking to leverage the benefits of cloud services. The RightScale cloud management platform enables organizations to easily deploy and manage business-critical applications on public, private, and hybrid clouds. RightScale has more than 60,000 users worldwide and has been used to launch over 4.5 million cloud servers. RightScale powers many of the cloud's largest users with customers such as Sony Music, Pearson, Intercontinental Hotels Group, MOL (Money OnLine) and Zynga.
According to the October 2012 Cloud Computing Market Research Report from IBISWorld*, the adoption of a cloud-computing model is used for achieving economies of scale, enhancing information sharing speed and developing new services. In Australia this year, total industry revenue is expected to be $1.24 billion, up 7.8% on the previous year.
RightScale cloud management provides efficient configuration, monitoring, automation, and governance of cloud computing infrastructure and applications. RightScale provides large enterprises to start-ups with cloud computing management for business agility. RightScale is integrated with the leading public and private cloud providers including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Windows Azure, Rackspace Open Cloud, OpenStack and Citrix CloudStack along with others.
"We're entering the Australian market to build on our success in the APAC region," said Josh Fraser, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Sales at RightScale. "We believe strongly in the Australian market and we've already had early wins with customers. We plan to apply our collective experience from working with both early-adopter and large-scale customers to the Australian market thereby helping businesses deploy to the cloud with less risk and more agility."
"As a modern web-based company we chose the cloud for agility and to handle scaling events. We incorporated RightScale cloud management into our cloud strategy right from the beginning to automate and streamline our cloud deployments on AWS," stated Derek Clapham, Engineering Czar and Co-founder of PhotoMerchant. "We rely on the dynamic provisioning that RightScale provides. Using RightScale gives PhotoMerchant the ability to focus more on the development of our application instead of managing our cloud infrastructure."
RightScale Australia is headed up by Giri Fox, an IT veteran with a background in enterprise sales and client management at leading organizations such as Cisco, Apple and IBM.
"The Australian market is poised for greater cloud adoption. Our entry strategy will focus on companies that range from those just beginning to use cloud services to more sophisticated cloud computing users," commented Giri Fox, Country Manager at RightScale Australia. "The maturity of the RightScale cloud management solution will be attractive to companies that want to leverage cloud computing to launch new offerings, reduce costs or expand their business."
RightScale will be presenting at the Amazon Web Services Event on November 13, 2012. RightScale will lead a session entitled "Manage for Peak Performance with AWS" presented by Josh Fraser. Mr. Fraser will be joined by RightScale customer, PhotoMerchant Co-Founder, Derek Clapham. The event will be held at The Westin, 1 Martin Place, Sydney.
The RightScale Australia office will be located in Sydney. RightScale also has offices located in Singapore, Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan to serve the fast growing cloud computing market in Asia Pacific.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
