CloudForms vs Scalr
Last updated: September 17, 2014
Red Hat CloudForms is an infrastructure management platform that allows IT departments to control users' self-service abilities to provision, manage, and ensure compliance across virtual machines and private clouds.
The Scalr Cloud Management Platform packages all the cloud best practices in an extensible piece of software, giving your engineers the head start they need to finally focus on creating customer value, not on solving cloud problems. Deploying infrastructure across multiple and largely incompatible cloud platforms? Scalr is a single pane of glass for all your cloud resources. It lets you access them through a single, unified, user interface.

2014. Cloud management service Scalr brings new insights to developers, IT, and finance departments
A new version of cloud management tool Scalr adds new features for the developers, IT and finance departments of cloud-using companies. With Scalr 5.0, for example, IT pros can set up policies to prevent deployment of workloads to the wrong cloud resources. For developers, Scalr 5.0 now supports webhooks, so Scalr ships off notifications of important events to the customers’ external configuration management database (CMDB) or other audit systems. And for the finance types, Scalr collects metadata about all cloud resources — who launched this instance and when, what jobs is it performing. Scalr works with AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and various OpenStack and other private clouds. Rivals in this arena include RightScale and Dell’s Enstratius.
