CSPs, it’s a race!!

And now you got a companion to help you WIN !!

RightCloudz has unveiled its latest offering — CompareNow Cloud Discovery Service — a platform where Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) can showcase their products to catch the attention of enterprises who are looking for the kind of service a CSP may be offering.

RightCloudz’ CompareNow Cloud Discovery platform helps CSPs to get noticed by classifying their services in categories that describe the offering best, rather than keeping all in one bag in a mixed form or putting them in a long list as shown in many search results! CSPs may choose to be shown as featured CSPs, which is limited in number, and thus can claim the pole-position in the mind of a business leader. The look and feel has been captured in Figure-1 below.


CSPs can also use the platform to set up a micro-site which would provide refined information in concise form for quick absorption. The micro-site is an important feature of the platform which helps CSPs to deliver key messages to its target audience, who are generally decision makers and senior executives, in a very short span of attention that might be given! The URL can be bookmarked for easy reference in future, and can be forwarded to someone seeking information. Figure-2 is a screen capture of one such micro-site.


RightCloudz’ CompareNow Cloud Discovery platform will also help the enterprises, the consumers of cloud services, to

  • discover CSPs those are offering the services they need (Figure-1),
  • see important information in a concise form in a micro-site (Figure-2), and
  • do a quick comparison of the features of a service offered by up to three CSPs (Figure-3 below).



So CSPs, why wait? Please visit the portal, explore and experience the strength of the platform. If you have a query, you could write back using the link given in the portal.

RightCloudz in Convergence-2016


Themed with Digital Business: New Frontiers in Management, Convergence-2016 organized by IFIM Business School, Bangalore from February 4-6, 2016 offered the platform to RightCloudz Technologies to show how one can derive optimum values from the cloud resources. Return on Investments (RoI) is something that all enterprises keep a watch on. One of the strategies to enhance cloud RoI is to make intelligent choices of third-party tools and add-ons.

Should third-party add-ons be looked into after committing to a service of a Cloud Service Provider, or should that be part of cloud selection process? How do we evaluate third-party add-ons? — Do the questions sound familiar?! Then take look at the paper “Disruption in Cloud RoI due to third-party add-ons” which looks into these issues and suggests a model. Read the abstract

RightCloudz’ methodologies were used by WATERNOMICS Consortium


We are very pleased to note that RankCloudz Online evaluation was used in a major report “WATERNOMICS : D.1.2. Inventory Technology, Standards and Policies” by the WATERNOMICS Consortium for the project “ICT for Water Resource Management” funded by the European Commission. The report presented a review of the state-of-the-art technologies relevant for “ICT for Water Resource Management” project, and an assessment of policies and standards that govern the implementation and use of available technologies by utilities and water users.

In Section 2.2.3 Cloud Infrastructure of the report “WATERNOMICS : D.1.2. Inventory Technology, Standards and Policies” the details from the in depth report created by RankCloudz Online evaluation were used to provide an insight into the performance and relative ranking of major IaaS providers based on the requirements of WATERNOMICS platform (pages 41-43), along with Gartner’s  “Magic quadrant for cloud infrastructure as a service” published in 2014.
