Cloud Computing Expo - RightScale Supports Amazon’s Elastic Block Store
RightScale is Now Supporting Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Elastic Block Store (EBS) Cloud Storage Solution

RightScale, the cloud management start-up, is now supporting Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Elastic Block Store (EBS) cloud storage solution.

Its users will have access to what it calls a “virtually limitless” storage area network directly from the RightScale Dashboard.

The Benchmark Capital-backed start-up says its customers, including the folks who use its free developer edition, can use EBS to manage and allocate one or more disk volumes from 1GB to 1TB each, maintain data availability even when virtual servers are shut down, and create backups via the snapshot feature.

Snapshotting stores the EBS volume to Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) with redundancy built in.

Previously, when an instance was shut down, all the data was lost. Now users can take a snapshot of an EBS volume, store it, and use it later to create a new volume.

RightScale figures EBS provides a more efficient, faster and accessible capability for data storage and management in the cloud.

According to its CEO Michael Crandell, “EBS is a major step for our customers and delivers storage capabilities that any big-iron SAN user would die for. Through the RightScale Dashboard, customers can easily and automatically manage large volumes of data, and SaaS vendors can run single-tenant virtual applications on behalf of their customers that require robust data storage in the cloud. EBS allows smaller companies, enterprise organizations and start-ups to get immediate access to a new set of powerful, redundant cloud storage assets they didn’t have time or money to build before.”

According to RightScale’s calculations EBS is cheaper and more reliable than a hosted solution.

RightScale can manage the canonical single-server virtual appliance architecture with a revolving set of frequent snapshots providing disaster recovery backups, periodic application-level “export” backups to S3 and off-cloud backups.

RightScale claims to be able to provide rapid deployment and a dynamically scalable infrastructure to meet varying traffic and loads, with minimal resources using automated tools and a centralized web dashboard.

Its cloud management platform has a one-time initial support fee of $2,500 and a starting plan of $500 per month.
