At RightScale, we are committed to delivering the scalable, on-demand power of cloud computing, while letting customers maintain the control and visibility required for serious business applications
Santa Barbara, Calif. (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
RightScale, Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced that it has integrated Splunk IT Search technology with the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. RightScale also announced that it is a founding member of the new Splunk Powered Associate partner program. With Splunk's powerful, high-speed IT Search technology integrated directly into RightScale's popular platform, users can aggregate and analyze IT data to improve operations, thwart security issues, comply with regulatory requirements and mine for business analytics.
"At RightScale, we are committed to delivering the scalable, on-demand power of cloud computing, while letting customers maintain the control and visibility required for serious business applications," said Michael Crandell, RightScale CEO. "Many of our customers have successfully used Splunk in the past to gain better visibility into their disparate IT data, and as one of the first members of the Splunk Powered Associate partner program, we are pleased to be able to offer this important technology on the RightScale platform for cloud IT deployments."
Cloud deployments are dynamic by design. Servers are added and decommissioned, IP addresses are assigned in real time, and entire deployments are taken off the cloud and then re-started at a later date. Traditional, static approaches to managing IT data simply don't work in the cloud. Splunk makes it possible to aggregate, search and navigate IT data from any application, server or device in the cloud in real time.
"RightScale's cross-platform cloud management platform and Splunk create a powerful combination for customers leveraging cloud computing infrastructure. And the Splunk Powered Associate program enables RightScale to bring Splunk to their cloud customers at no cost," said Michael Baum, co-founder and chief corporate and business development officer at Splunk. "As more organizations move critical IT systems onto cloud infrastructures, we believe there will be a growing demand for Splunk's IT Search capabilities, and partners like RightScale are helping deliver it."
Customers can start using Splunk IT Search on the RightScale Cloud Management Platform in minutes. RightScale users simply add a single RightScript to all the servers they want to analyze and then launch a Splunk receiver using a pre-defined RightScale ServerTemplate. Once deployed, users can take advantage of Splunk's powerful search, alerting, reporting and analytics through the RightScale Management Dashboard.
