Zeus Launches Its Traffic Management Software on RightScale Cloud Management Platform
SAN MATEO, Calif., – July 12, 2011 – Zeus Technology, the pioneers of Application Delivery Controller software, announces today that Zeus Traffic Manager is now available on the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. Through this partnership, RightScale customers gain access to Zeus’ flexible and scalable traffic management technology, enabling them to easily create, manage and deliver exceptional service levels for their cloud-based applications.
As the only pure software traffic management solution, Zeus’ technology is ideally suited to support RightScale customers’ varying cloud needs, particularly those that have multi-cloud environments or advanced cloud requirements, such as cloud bursting or cloud balancing. With such capabilities, RightScale customers can easily scale cloud capacity to meet various traffic demands, as well as shift capacity to another cloud in the event of an outage. This ensures customers’ uninterrupted service for their cloud-based applications.
“We are pleased that Zeus’ traffic management technology is now available to RightScale customers. Their technology is enterprise-grade and fully supported which is very important for our customers to ensure high availability and responsiveness of their applications,” said Josh Fraser, RightScale VP of Business Development. "Deploying Zeus in RightScale can be done in a few clicks; and because Zeus uses our single billing model the charge is conveniently included in the RightScale invoice for the customer."
“This partnership is truly complementary for customers in every sense,” said Kosten Metreweli, Chief Strategy Officer, Zeus Technology. “Companies turn to RightScale to provide them with a cloud management layer that offers the necessary flexibility, scalability, automation and control to better manage their cloud deployments. Zeus provides those same capabilities but in the form of traffic management software, enabling customers to manage applications in the cloud.”
The RightScale Cloud Management Platform works with cloud infrastructures providers (IaaS) to deliver a more productive environment for managing cloud deployments. It’s ideal for various business needs, including those that require a fast on-ramp for deploying in the cloud or those with complex deployments. RightScale delivers complete automation that reduces complexity and administrative burdens, yet gives businesses flexibility, control and portability across multiple clouds – private, public or hybrid.
