Overview

As a RightScale customer, I'm curious if there will be full integrated support for RackSpace Cloud Load Balancers (CLB) and Cloud Databases (CDB)?

Resolution

RightScale currently has no GUI based integration for RackSpace Cloud Load Balancers or Cloud Database services, however we do offer basic script-driven for most scenarios which has proven to be adequate for most customers. Both RackSpace First Generation/Legacy and Open Cloud offerings are supported by these script based integrations for both CLB and CDB.

As an example, RightScale offers Chef recipes and Inputs for these recipes that allow you to specify a Cloud Load Balancer name/service within the input value, which in turn is used to 'connect' an application server to this cloud load balancer. For more details, check out the 3 Tier CLB-PHP-MySQL tutorial for details.
