RightScale MultiCloud Platform Review
Deployment is too complex and time consuming

Primary Use Case

I have seen RightScale be used for AWS automation.

Improvements to My Organization

Deployment is too complex and time consuming. It has delivered no real value beyond the automation of VM deployment.

Valuable Features

  • The dashboard is interesting. 
  • The cost analytics are quite good. 
  • The forecasting is handy to view. 
  • The security port maps are impressive.

Room for Improvement

  • Usability
  • Complexity of deployment
  • The interface is dated.
  • The requirement for custom Ruby code is not viable.

Use of Solution

Trial/evaluations only.

Implementation Team

Due to its implementation's complexity, it was delivered for a minimal value at a high cost.

Pricing, License Cost and Setup

It is expensive.

Other Solutions Considered

I have evaluated many options.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Check out VirtEngine - might be what you need since it's Open Source and now has AWS Automation.
