I was able to catch up with Michael Crandell the CEO of Rightscale on this podcast. This is the “first” second timer on “Cloud Cafe”. Michael walks me through their two recent announcements that they made at Structur08 for MySQL and GigaSpaces. Michael also throws out some great numbers on the status of Rightscale:
- 125k instances launched
- 4k instances in one 24 hour period
- 100+ paying customers
- 5k registered users
We also talked a little bit about what Benchmark is brining to the table to help with these new partner relationships. Then we end up with a discussion on cloud standards.
I wanted to add a special thanks to Florence Neal for the artwork and Mike Colletti for the music. If you find any of their works interesting, please feel free to link their sites and contact them directly.
