NorthScale Teams With RightScale to Deliver Elastic Data Scaling in a Managed Cloud Environment

Technology Integration Ideal for Social Games and Other Dynamic “Scale-out” Applications on the Cloud

SANTA BARBARA, CA and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwire – September 14, 2010) – RightScale®, Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, and NorthScale, the elastic data management software company, today announced the availability of NorthScale’s Membase NoSQL database technology within the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. Starting today, RightScale users can take advantage of NorthScale’s elastic data management software to cost-effectively and dynamically scale-out high-demand, elastic applications in a RightScale cloud management environment.

“The combination of RightScale’s automated cloud management with NorthScale’s high throughput, low-latency database creates an ideal solution for web applications with variable, extremely high scaling needs, such as social games,” said Josh Fraser, vice president of Business Development at RightScale. “We are pleased to be able to extend our customers’ data management options with NorthScale’s cloud-friendly and cost-effective NoSQL database.”

“Along with speed and elasticity, simplicity was one of the key drivers for the design and development of Membase — we recognize that customer adoption and success begins with ease of use,” said James Phillips, co-founder and senior vice president of products at NorthScale. “RightScale’s Cloud Management Platform and pre-packaged ServerTemplates make it even easier to deploy, manage and scale Membase in cloud-based environments.”

The RightScale Cloud Management Platform lets any organization tap the power of cloud computing for scalable, cost-effective IT infrastructure on demand, with complete control and portability. RightScale reduces the complexity of cloud deployments, enabling organizations to launch business-critical applications rapidly, without the risk of lock-in.

NorthScale provides a new class of data management technology that scales-out, dramatically lowering data management costs while improving the scalability and performance of interactive web applications. NorthScale Membase Server is a simple, fast, elastic key-value database that stores web application data far more efficiently and cost effectively than it can be stored in a relational database, and enables organizations to deploy a highly available, cloud-friendly data layer that expands and rebalances dynamically as application needs change.

With the new cloud-ready NorthScale Membase ServerTemplate, RightScale users can now easily integrate NorthScale data management software as part of a high-performance, highly scalable and elastic cloud application in a RightScale-managed cloud environment.

Zynga, one of the world’s top social media companies, uses both the RightScale Cloud Management Platform and NorthScale Membase Server for many of its popular social games, including FarmVille.

The NorthScale Membase ServerTemplate is available immediately in all RightScale Cloud Management Platform editions. To get up and running on a cloud quickly, NorthScale customers can sign up for RightScale’s Free Edition and then easily upgrade to RightScale Standard or Premium Editions for significantly more cloud management features and functionality.
