DESCRIPTION

Companies are searching for a way to transform their existing investments in virtualization to provide the benefits of private cloud services. For many organizations, this means leveraging VMware vSphere environments and expertise. However, vSphere and other virtualized environments are not equivalent to cloud. They lack key cloud capabilities, and access is typically limited to a small number of trained administrators. IT teams want to deliver true cloud services across public and virtualized resource pools. To help you cloudify your virtualized environments, RightScale has developed a lightweight virtual software appliance that integrates RightScale Cloud Portfolio Management and the VMware vSphere virtualization platform. With this appliance, IT teams can leverage RightScale as a single pane of glass to manage applications across vSphere environments as well as leading public and private clouds. In this webinar we focus how you can: Enhance vSphere with cloud-like capabilities Provide self-service access across cloud and virtualized environments Create portable workloads that operate across vSphere and public and private clouds Access unified management, reporting and analytics across public clouds and virtualized environments With the RightScale Cloud Appliance, you can cloudify your vSphere environments for increased agility while reducing vendor lock-in.
