Auto-Scaling In The Cloud: Google+ Hangout With RightScale Recap

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Alan Bush | May 28, 2013 3:00 pm

Each Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. CST, our Cloud Launch Team offers office hours on our Google+ page[1] to give people a chance to ask questions and learn more about the cloud. Last week, we focused on one of the hottest topics in the cloud: auto-scaling your configuration. To help with the conversation, we asked RightScale[2], a Cloud Tools[3] partner that assists customers with organizing, configuring, automating and auto-scaling their configurations, to join us. Watch the entire video of the Hangout on YouTube[4] or check out the highlights below that will link you to the spot in the video where the topic was discussed.

Have a question about the cloud? Be sure to catch me and other Cloud Launch Rackers in the next Google+ Hangout[9] this Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. CST!
