Racemi Announces Support for VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™ in Automated Migration Software
VMWorld, SAN FRANCISCO, August 26, 2013 – Racemi, a provider of server migration software that automates the process of migrating workloads to public clouds, today announced that it has completed validation of VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™, enabling the migration of heterogeneous workloads to vCloud Hybrid Service.
“We worked closely with VMware to offer support for vCloud environments,” said James Strayer, vice president of product management, Racemi. “With Racemi server migration software, we can quickly and easily migrate workloads from any platform, such as physical servers, other virtual platforms, and even other cloud providers, into vCloud Hybrid Service.”
Racemi’s server imaging technology automatically migrates data between dissimilar physical, virtual or private cloud platforms, streamlining the onboarding process from days to minutes. By comparison, manually migrating workloads to a public cloud built on different infrastructure can take significant manual labor, significantly impacting migration costs.
“We are pleased to work with Racemi to enable the migration of workloads into VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™,” said Mathew Lodge, vice president, Cloud Services, VMware. “This is important as our customers move their workloads across different environments and deploy into hybrid cloud environments.”
Racemi software captures the entire server stack—including the operating system, applications, and configuration—and automatically converts it to run on vCloud Hybrid Service by applying the necessary tools and drivers during the migration process. This enables existing workloads are migrated in their time-tested configuration, minimizing risk and verification testing.
VMware customers interested in migrating heterogeneous workloads into their vCloud Hybrid Service environments may contact Racemi about migration options immediately.
