The most stressful game on Earth: Commander in Chief for the PC

RightScale this morning announced it had raised $13 million in a second round of venture capital funding.

As the name implies, RightScale attempts to solve the accessibility problem for small to medium sized businesses who lack the development resources to transition into cloud computing. They provide a simple dashboard interface that fits on top of Amazon Web Services. In addition, their services also include auto-scaling of servers according to usage load, and pre-built installation templates for common software stacks.

Currently, RightScale has launched over 200,000 servers during their two year existance.

The round was led by Index Ventures and included BenchMark Capital. Index Ventures Partner Danny Rimer has joined the company’s board of directors.

Given the current economic climate, it’s reassuring to see that VC’s are still investing in cloud computing.
