Racemi Announces Support for Migrations to Amazon Web Services International Regions via Dedicated Service
ATLANTA, November 20, 2013 – Racemi, the leading provider of automated server migration software that streamlines the process of migrating workloads to public, private, and hybrid clouds, today announced Cloud Path for AWS, a dedicated Amazon Web Services migration portal with support across the AWS international regions – Australia (Sydney), Brazil (Sao Paulo), Ireland, Japan (Tokyo) and Singapore. These are additions to existing support for AWS in the U.S. east and west regions.
This brings a new level of flexibility and efficiency enabling customers to specify their region, which ensures their data resides only in the region selected, and faster migrations since less distance is typically required.
Racemi established a dedicated Cloud Path software as a service (SaaS) self-service portal for AWS customers to automate migration of their existing Windows and Linux servers. There is no infrastructure to deploy or maintain on the customer’s site and key features such as Live Capture ensure there is no server downtime. All customer data is secured and compressed using AES/RSA SSL encryption over firewall- friendly, fault tolerant outbound HTTPS connections to provide maximum protection and reliability.
“We’re responding to customer demand for an easy way to transition workloads to Amazon Web Services in their preferred international region,” said James Strayer, vice president for product management, Racemi. “Our experience in the U.S. over the past three years provided us with the knowledge needed to now expand to the rest of the world.”
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 SaaS captures the entire server stack—including operating system, applications, and configuration—and automatically converts it to run on the selected AWS region 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. Racemi also partners with key AWS Consulting Partners such as 2nd Watch and FivePoint to speed enterprise customer migrations to AWS.
