RightScale will support Azure VMs

RightScale, which offers a management solution for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) announced that it will support Azure VMs in its product Cloud Management Platform, the Register reports in a interview with CTO and founder Thorsten van Eicken.

RightScale currently supports a number of public IaaS clouds: Amazon EC2, GoGrid and FlexiScale. The company already announced the upcoming support for The Rackspace Cloud. It also supports those private IaaS clouds that are already managed by Eucalyptus, allowing customers to build and manage hybrid clouds architectures.

An early preview of the Azure VM role was released in December last year, and is still expected for the first half of this year.
