Racemi and Carahsoft to streamline migration projects for government customers and partners
VMWorld, SAN FRANCISCO, August 27, 2013 – Racemi, the leading provider of automated server migration solutions, today announces an agreement with Carahsoft Technology Corp., the leading government IT solutions provider, which will offer Racemi software and services to assist with customer server migrations.
Carahsoft is a leading VMware IT solutions partner focused on the public sector. The company was ranked #28 on the CRN 2013 Solution Provider 500 list of top technology integrators in the U.S. and Canada, announced last month, based on its revenue of $1.4 billion last year.
As part of the agreement effective immediately, Carahsoft will proactively market and resell Racemi server migration software and professional services to its government customers, technology partners, as well as service providers and resellers.
“The extensive experience of Carahsoft and its network in the public sector combined with our industry-leading server migration technology and services will help accelerate any server migration project,” said Lawrence Guillory, CEO of Racemi. “We believe that the public sector represents a great opportunity for our company and together with Carahsoft, we will deliver a new level of value to its government customers and partner network.”
“Racemi’s server migration software and services are the perfect solution for public sector server migration projects,” said John Lee, Vice President of Cloud Solutions at Carahsoft, which also serves as VMware’s master government aggregator. “Installed on thousands of servers in Global 2000 data centers around the world, Racemi’s software stands up to rigorous security and performance standards. We look forward to making the company’s solutions available to the government market and our extensive ecosystem of partners.”
Racemi’s server imaging technology quickly clones server workloads between dissimilar physical, virtual or private cloud platforms, reducing the migration process from days to minutes. The Racemi software captures the entire server stack—including operating system, applications, and configuration—and automatically converts it to run on the new target platform by applying the necessary tools and drivers during the migration process. This ensures existing workloads are migrated in their time-tested configuration, resulting in better reliability and supportability.
