Watch Jon talk about CSC’s experience with Racemi at re:Invent 2015

“We have committed to migrate thousands of workloads from our private datacenters to AWS in a multi-year effort. Racemi DynaCenter has given us the ability to live-migrate enterprise Windows and Linux workloads directly into our Amazon VPC environment, while maintaining the security and availability levels required by our business. We have now ramped up to hundreds of migrations into AWS.” – Ben Wilson, CTO of GE Oil & Gas. Watch GE Oil and Gas talk about Racemi at AWS re:Invent 2015

“Our favorite features of [Racemi] are the Live Capture capability and the automated conversion of the physical server or VM to the AWS platform. With AWS import tools, we had to take the server offline and do a lot of manual reconfiguration for it to import successfully into AWS, and then we had to reconfigure the instance once it was live in EC2. [Racemi] eliminates all of that headache by allowing me to take a snapshot of the running server and migrate it into AWS automatically, literally saving us multiple man days of labor per application.” – Michael Mwamunga, Five Point.

“[Racemi] made migrating our SAP ERP implementation to SoftLayer point and click simple. We estimate we saved over a man week of time versus a manual migration, saving us thousands of dollars in labor.” – Bicky G. – Racemi customer.

“How easy is it to use Racemi [DynaCenter] to migrate apps? It can literally migrate an app while the team is out for sushi dinner, which is exactly what happened this week…“- DynaCenter User, Architect, Fortune 500 Energy Company

“Migration of a complex application is like performing surgery – you wouldn’t call your normal doctor to perform surgery. Using Racemi will save you time and money versus using in house engineers to do a manual migration or rebuild. Racemi has the tools, they have the expertise. A manual migration will take you twice as long and cost twice as much – your staff may not have the expertise and they will have competing priorities. These are your strategic assets, do not risk it! Use Racemi – it’s as simple as that,” Dr. Eno Agbor, Director LOPPEX. Download Their Case Study!

“Now that GoGrid has bundled migration via the Racemi…service into its core offering, other cloud vendors are going to have to follow suit. This will rapidly become like online banking, where once one bank offered it for free, every bank had to offer it for free in order to compete. This is clearly a good thing for the public cloud vendors, a good thing for customers who want to be able to move workloads to public clouds at minimum cost and hassle, and a great thing for Racemi…it is easy to envision a world where public cloud vendors like Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and RackSpace all bundle the Racemi service for onboarding. If this occurs it will knock down one of the major barriers to the migration of workloads to public clouds which is the cost and the time required to do these migrations manually.” – Bernd Harzog, The Virtualization Practice

“There is no question that migrating workloads to the cloud is a bottleneck faced by cloud and hosting infrastructure providers. Similarly, migrating between different types of infrastructure – physical, virtual or cloud – faces its own set of challenges. The process can be complicated, time-consuming and manual. Breaking down these barriers through automation is crucial for service providers looking to drive efficiency and create a better user experience. All of this contributes to increased uptake and revenues.” – Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research Limited.

“EC2 customers Foursquare, Quora, Reddit.com and others won’t soon forget the April 2011 outage at the Amazon Web Services datacenter in northern Virginia… Frustrating as the downtime was for its victims, it serves as a useful reminder to other enterprises contemplating cloud use to engineer around expected outages. AWS customers who had built for high availability achieved it. By making it possible to harness private datacenters to multiple public cloud providers, Racemi’s DynaCenter is aiming to enable just these kinds of complex and resilient cloud strategies. “  – Tier 1 Research

“T1R believes that Racemi does enough for managed service providers without creating the typical ‘marketecture’ fatigue that entraps so many growing managed hosting providers. Enough, that is, to solve two of the pressing worries of enterprises: how do I easily and quickly migrate and integrate my complex workloads to a cloud platform; and how do I do so without the risk of locking myself in unnecessarily, if it wasn’t what I expected? “ – Antonio Pirano/Rachel Chalmers 451 Group/Tier 1 Research

“For beleaguered systems administrators, the prospect of moving physical servers into cloud services from Amazon, Rackspace, Terremark or GoGrid … is little short of miraculous…should be a fast, low-touch, low-risk way to move into – and between – cloud providers.”  – Rachel Chalmers

“Racemi…is designed to convert existing infrastructure, networking and storage into a virtual architecture ready to be spun up on a number of major cloud providers, with essentially no input from the owner beyond a few commands and network access. It’s a remarkable feat of automation to say the least…” – Carl Brooks, Tier 1R

“What’s new with Racemi is that it has found a way to make a complex, highly intrusive set of operations into a use-able…service, effectively bridging the gap between IaaS and internal IT infrastructure.” – Carl Brooks, Tier 1 Research


“Anyone whose business suffered from the recent Amazon EC2 outages should welcome [Racemi’s] clear methodology for shifting to alternative suppliers. Its use can become part of a new way for users to future-proof offloaded applications, accommodating the ones which shift from ‘non-core’ to ‘mission critical’ in time…Racemi’s approach should help users guard against lock-in as vendors become increasingly vertically integrated. We predict big problems down the line if Cloud service contracts don’t address how to off-board at the end of the contract.”   – IT Candor 

“As people are getting their heads around the economic benefits of cloud computing–pay just for what you use servers and services–I’ve been hearing a lot of people say they’d use the cloud if only they could move their existing servers to the cloud without a lot of blood, sweat, and toil. This is where Racemi, a cloud-services company, comes in with its easy server migration program. Racemi’s answer for server to cloud migration is a…point-and-click tool that lets you easily take your servers from your server room to the cloud of your choice. ”Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, ZDNet

“The really neat thing about this is that DynaCenter… doesn’t require you to modify your server to make it portable. In short, you really can just move your local servers to the cloud without a lot of pain and suffering. Just as nice…you can avoid cloud vendor lock-in. Say you discover that Amazon EC2 isn’t for you. Usually shifting from one cloud provider can be another can be a nightmare. Racemi promises that… shifting servers from one cloud to another a simple point-and-click operation. I really like the sound of that.” – Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, ZDNet
