Racemi Provides Lifeline to Transition Windows Servers to Cloud

Racemi today announces that its Cloud Path portal expands support to migrate Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008 R1 servers in the data center to Amazon Web Services (AWS), as well as Windows Server 2003 R1/R2 and Windows Server 2008 R1 to SoftLayer Cloud. With millions of these legacy Windows servers installed around the world on server hardware that is five to 10-years-old, data center managers are looking at transitioning to the cloud as a solution.

"We're extending a lifeline with our easy-to-use online Cloud Path migration service, which can transition their legacy data center servers to AWS or SoftLayer in minutes without the need to reboot and no server downtime," said James Strayer, vice president of product management, Racemi. "By moving those workloads, data center managers will be able to retire old hardware and get the benefit of higher capacity, higher performance in the cloud."

Racemi Cloud Path is a Software as a Service that enables businesses to quickly and automatically migrate their existing servers into the public cloud, without the need to purchase, install, or manage any infrastructure. The fully-automated, self-service streamlines the migration process. It's estimated to save $800 per server migrated on average when compared to manual migration processes or rebuilding from scratch in the cloud.

Racemi is currently offering this self-service migration solution to SoftLayer customers at no charge. Details about this offer can be accessed at

Racemi's software technology captures the entire server stack-including operating system, applications, and configuration-and automatically converts it to run on the 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.
