RightScale Expands In Australia

Santa Barbara-based cloud computing software developer RightScale has expanded into Australia, the firm said last week. RightScale said it has set up operations in Sydney, which will provide local sales, support and professional services for its platform in that country. RightScale is a provider of software used to manage the configuration, monitoring, and other aspects of both private and public cloud computing. The company said it has tapped Giri Fox, who has formerly served for companies such as Cisco, Apple and IBM, to head up its efforts in Australia.
