Cloud computing management RightScale, Inc. has secured $13 million in its second round of venture capital funding, led by Index Ventures. Current investor Benchmark Capital, which led RightScale’s first round of venture financing, also participated in this round.
RightScale will use the proceeds to accelerate product and market development of its cloud computing management platform to meet growing demand, including support for new clouds and expansion into additional geographic markets.
RightScale’s web-based cloud computing management platform lets any organization tap the enormous power of cloud computing for scalable, cost-effective IT infrastructure on demand, while maintaining complete control and flexibility. RightScale reduces the complexity of cloud computing, enabling organizations to deploy mission critical applications in a matter of hours, without the risk of lock-in at any level. With sophisticated “cloud-aware” server templates, the fully-automated RightScale platform requires little knowledge of cloud architecture to deploy, manage and dynamically scale even complex, multi-cloud applications.
