SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/10/12 -- RightScale® Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced it has formed a partnership with Korean Internet Neutral eXchange (KINX) to be a RightScale authorized distributor in Korea. This new partnership will bring the RightScale Cloud Management Platform to the growing cloud computing market in Korea with localized support and services. Korean companies will now have the ability to work with KINX as a reseller to easily deploy and manage their applications on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) public clouds, private clouds and hybrid clouds.
KINX customers will be able to leverage RightScale's fully automated cloud management platform to deploy and manage their business critical applications with complete control and transparency. RightScale Cloud Management provides KINX customers with the ability to manage their chosen public, private and hybrid clouds through a 'single pane of glass.' Customers will also have access to the RightScale MultiCloud Marketplace, which includes pre-built cloud-ready server templates, scripts, and complete architectures published by RightScale, Independent Software Vendors, and Systems Integration partners. All of these pre-built configurations are fully customizable and provide a variety of solutions to get started ranging from social gaming architectures to standard application stacks to database solutions. Additionally, any company that wishes to deploy in Korea will be able to do so on KINX's public cloud using RightScale. This should be of particular value to the Korean online gaming and mobile market.
"This partnership is an important part of our Asia Pacific strategy," said Josh Fraser, Senior Vice President of Business Development at RightScale. "KINX's broad reach in Korea will further extend our business, and give our Korean customers a trusted local partner. We look forward to supporting KINX's growing cloud services."
"The cloud's strength will be based on the smooth deployment and management of our customers' applications. With this partnership, we believe we will create a path for customers to use the cloud, especially for our active market of developers preparing to launch their new Facebook game or smartphone applications," said Sun Young Lee, CEO of KINX.
