Racemi Automates Migrations To IBM Cloud Services

Racemi Automates Migrations To IBM Cloud Services

Customers can begin migrations to IBM SoftLayer’s cloud from competing services immediately

ATLANTA, September 16, 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 global support for IBM public cloud offerings, providing clients an automated migration path to their IBM cloud of choice, at no charge for a limited time.

Racemi

Racemi’s Cloud Path software as a service (SaaS) enables IBM customers to migrate server workloads to IBM’s SoftLayer cloud services at no charge (see terms and conditions).

Working closely with IBM, we are offering customers free migrations to IBM SoftLayer’s public cloud services,” said James Strayer, vice president of product management, Racemi. “This ensures there a fast, easy way to move existing workloads to IBM’s cloud computing platforms.”

Today, clients in a variety of industries ranging from governments, banks, retailers are using IBM’s cloud capabilities to drive innovation and growth. More and more clients are turning to IBM Softlayer cloud offerings as they look to adopt cloud capabilities built on an open, secure comprehensive platform giving them the option to scale as the need for service grows. SoftLayer delivers Infrasturcture-as-a-Service to 21,000 clients across all industries.

Details about this offer and the SaaS migration service for IBM cloud customers can be accessed at www.racemi.com/ibm.

Cloud Path software-as-a-service (SaaS) is a self-service portal that automates the migration of existing Windows and Linux servers to public cloud services. 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.

This new migration service will expedite IBM clients’ ‘on-ramp’ to the enterprise cloud,” said Kit Linton, director of Cloud Infrastructure Offerings. “As more clients demand enterprise cloud capabilities, they are looking to IBM to deliver the security, privacy and reliability of open, private clouds with the economy and speed of a public cloud through IBM cloud.

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. This results in an average labor savings of over $800 per server versus a manual migration. The Racemi SaaS captures the entire server stack—including operating system, applications, and configuration—and automatically converts it to run on the new 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 better reliability and supportability.

IBM has invested $6 billion in more than a dozen cloud acquisitions since 2007, including, most recently, SoftLayer to extend IBM’s public cloud capabilities and help clients with an easy on-ramp to the enterprise cloud.
