Racemi Announces Support for VMware vCloud Hybrid Service

Only VMware certified partner to offer migration capability

What is the easiest way for an enterprise to migrate to the vCloud Hybrid Service? Racemi makes that promise with its migration software that now supports vCloud Hybrid Service - an addition to other VMware platforms vSphere and vCloud. Racemi is the only VMware certified partner to offer the ability to migrate existing physical, virtual (Xen, Hyper-V, VMware, KVM), and even other cloud servers into 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 manual labor, significantly impacting migration costs.

And from the VMware side, Mathew Lodge, vice president - Cloud Services, said: "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.
