RightScale, a provider of cloud computing management, and Logicworks, a provider of managed hosting and cloud computing services, have joined forces to deliver a powerful solution to help enterprises simplify and manage both their public and private cloud resources.

By integrating the RightScale Cloud Management Platform with Logicworks’ InfiniCloud and PowerCluster private cloud infrastructures, the companies are meeting the needs of enterprises that require high availability and compliance standards when moving mission-critical applications to the cloud.

Today many enterprises find it difficult to move all portions of their infrastructure to the cloud for many reasons. It could be a result of their unique business requirements, lack of the appropriate internal staffing and expertise to manage their cloud infrastructure, or the need to ensure compliance with regulations such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy rules or Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards.

“When an enterprise requiring true high-availability or compliance moves to the cloud, one of their key challenges is finding a platform that meets the specific needs of their organization,” said Kenneth Ziegler, President and COO of Logicworks. “By pairing RightScale’s innovative management platform with Logicworks’ technical solutions and consultative, white glove customer service, clients benefit from an easy-to-manage combination of public cloud resources plugged directly into their own dedicated, private availability-zone, helping them strike the right balance between dynamic, pay-as-you go resources and dedicated solutions for their steady-state, predictable-load or sensitive data.”

The partnership brings together Logicworks’ InfiniCloud public cloud infrastructure and PowerCluster private cloud resources and services for high performance applications with the RightScale Cloud Management Platform, which is designed to help manage applications as they scale.

“Not all clouds are created equal. And if they were, we would not be witnessing this current untapped need for solutions to simplify deployment and management, or for high-touch managed services,” said Michael Crandell, CEO of RightScale. “Our joint offering with Logicworks gives customers a much-needed choice for compliance and high-availability as they deploy and scale their multi-cloud infrastructures.”
