Flexera vs Scalr in our news:

2018. Flexera acquires cloud management firm RightScale



Flexera, a software asset management company, is acquiring cloud management firm RightScale. For Flexera, RightScale gives it a core cloud play and a management platform to sell to its customer base. According to the companies, the two technology stacks are complementary and should be able to optimize software and cloud spending across an organization. In addition, RightScale gets a larger sales footprint to expand. Indeed, the combination of cloud and enterprise software management could be timely as companies mix and match applications and clouds.


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.
