Racemi Software Automates Migrations to Virtually Any Cloud Platform | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Ideal for system integrators, managed service providers, cloud providers to speed workload migrations

Racemi, a provider of automated server migration software, announces availability of updated DynaCenter software that is now capable of moving workloads to virtually any cloud computing platform, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM SoftLayer, OpenStack, vCloud Air, or Windstream.

The automation software is especially suited for system integrators who can take advantage of DynaCenter's server migration capabilities to speed project timelines, along with cloud providers as a means to streamline migrations to their cloud or hosting services. DynaCenter helps drive adoption of services by reducing the time to onboard customers.

DynaCenter's new "live deploy" function migrates workloads from a physical or virtual server to almost any target cloud platform that supports Hyper-V, KVM, VMware or Xen hypervisors, running supported Linux or Windows guest operating systems.

"The flexibility of our automated migration software presents a great option for system integrators, MSPs (managed service providers) and cloud providers looking to help customers move workloads to cloud computing," said James Strayer, vice president of product management, Racemi. "This DynaCenter update provides customers and partners with an unprecedented level of options in choosing their computing platform."

Also, this latest release of DynaCenter software comes with a new user interface for migrating large numbers of workloads, features such as server grouping, ability to assign standardized configurations using templates, as well as automatic server sizing. This new interface streamlines the migration process, making large-scale migration projects much faster and easier.

In addition, DynaCenter adds a new level of AWS integration with support for Elastic Block Store (EBS) encrypted volumes. Now, the process of securely moving workloads to EBS encrypted disks is automated and simpler than ever.

Licensing of DynaCenter starts at $299 per successful workload migration, with volume discounts available.

Racemi's DynaCenter migration software captures the entire server stack - including operating system, applications, configuration and data - and automatically converts it to run on the selected cloud 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 improved reliability and reduced support requirements. 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.
