Using RightScale, customers can automate and customize the build-up, operation, and break-down of many types of workloads, from on-demand data analysis clusters, to batch processing, to 3-tier web apps built to specific customer requirements. With this announcement, customers will be able to purchase Google Compute Engine services directly from RightScale and leverage on-boarding and support services from RightScale’s professional services team.

RightScale and Google will also offer custom solutions created for industry verticals, including Advertising, Media, Entertainment and Gaming.
