RightScale Cloud Management review by Andrew D.

"Rightscale manages our entire deployment strategy."

What do you like best?

The Chef integration within rightscale was the initial draw to use the solution. But since starting we've used everything from chef to the standard one-off scripts that run a function when we need them to. The audit logging for executions is incredibly helpful as is the API into Rightscale which we make daily use of.

What do you dislike?

At first it was how behind Rightscale was when keeping up with Chef but they have since resolved this and at this point the only bottlenecks for improving our platform are our ability to develop them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They don't have much support unless you pay for the enterprise solution. The monthly pay-as-you-go plan doesn't come with any support other than the forums. Fortunately they have excellent documentation and there are plenty of resources on chef found online.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automation is key. People are fallible and make mistakes and by putting everything in Rightscale you can automate the creation and deployment of server infrastructures with just a few clicks.

"The company is a bit rudderless at the moment"

What do you like best?

The ability to support "multi-cloud". RightScale allows us to build applications and deploy them potentially to any cloud vendor, in any cloud region.

What do you dislike?

RightScale in the past year has really lost focus. They used to be laser focused on our business, but since their acquisition by Flexera they lost many key technologists and have lost focus on what is most valuable to us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rightscale can be a good solution if you truly do use multiple clouds AND you frequently terminate and redeploy instances. If you actually only use the same cloud or clouds, don't really consider others, and don't frequently redeploy another tool would be better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

RightScale is a central tool for deploying our cloud application.

What Cloud Cost Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Good tool option for tackling challenges in public cloud management"

What do you like best?

Rightscale is like a swiss army knife for managing public cloud providers. One tool does it all.

What do you dislike?

The UI needs some update and rendering time can be faster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing multiple public cloud providers. Single tool to use.
