Talking to RightScale about “myCloud” and their work with Zynga

Earlier this week
at Cloud Expo, I talked to both Peder
of and Rich
of Eucalyptus about their involvement with RightScale‘s myCloud
solution. Yesterday I thought I would go straight to the source so I got a hold
of RightScale’s VP of business development, Josh Fraser.

Besides the
myCloud announcement, Josh also told me about their work with Zynga. Zynga, as detailed in a recent InformationWeek
, has a hybrid cloud model. Zynga uses the Amazon public cloud to
test new games and then if the game is a hit and when its demand has leveled
off, they pull it back into their Z-cloud private cloud. RightScale manages
across the two clouds.
