Alfresco and RightScale Partner to Enhance Content Management in the Cloud

RightScale Platform Speeds Deployment and Increases Scalability of Alfresco in the Cloud

LONDON, UK and SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – December 16, 2009 – Alfresco Software, Inc., the leader in open source enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, and RightScale®, Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, today announced the availability of a joint solution that speeds deployment time and automates scaling of Alfresco software in the cloud. Utilizing RightScale’s software-as-a-service (SAAS) cloud management platform, it is now even easier for content management software (CMS) users to implement, manage and scale Alfresco’s open source ECM solution in the cloud.

RightScale’s cloud management platform enables organizations to deploy Alfresco open source ECM in minutes and easily create a fully-configured, fault-tolerant and load-balanced Alfresco cluster using RightScale ServerTemplates. Alfresco cloud deployments on RightScale can automatically scale to meet the needs of Alfresco ECM customers, which can vary widely depending on the number of projects, the number of people working on each project and users’ geographic locations. By automatically and dynamically growing and reducing the number of servers on the cloud with RightScale, Alfresco customers can reduce costs, only paying for the system usage as needed, while maintaining system performance.

“More and more of our enterprise-level customers are taking advantage of the cloud environment, and we are well-positioned to continue to expand capabilities in this area,” said John Powell, CEO and Co-founder, Alfresco Software. “Our partnership with RightScale builds on Alfresco’s existing foundation as a flexible, scalable and low-cost solution and will further streamline the process of building complex architectures around Alfresco in the cloud.”

“Alfresco shares our vision of driving the expansion and delivery of new capabilities in the cloud," said Michael Crandell, RightScale CEO. "RightScale brings automation, increased IT control and visibility to Alfresco users, who understand the advantages of creating and deploying open source ECM solutions in the cloud.”

Alfresco and Rightscale will be hosting a webinar on January 12, 2010 to demonstrate this solution.
