New Racemi Cloud Migration Software Gives Customers More Options

Racemi, a provider of automated server migration software, announces availability of a new version of its DynaCenter software that provides even more options for migrating to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM SoftLayer cloud computing resources. Those include support for Windows Server 2012 servers, additional Amazon and IBM data centers in Europe, as well as a "dynamic memory mode" for servers with constrained processing resources.

Now, DynaCenter 6.0 adds support for Windows Server 2012 R1 and R2 migrations to AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), AWS GovCloud (US) Region, and AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

In addition, support has been added for migrating workloads to the Amazon Frankfurt (eu-central-1) region, giving customers a choice of deploying to 10 Amazon data centers worldwide.

Also, support has been added for the IBM SoftLayer data center in Paris, which means customers have a choice of deploying to 12 IBM SoftLayer data centers around the globe.

Now, a new feature - called dynamic memory mode - is used during the server capture process to create limits on available memory utilization on resource constrained systems. Combined with Racemi's existing CPU and network sensitivity features, dynamic memory mode ensures that critical applications continue to run unaffected during the server migration process.

"DynaCenter continues to offer the broadest coverage and deepest integration with AWS and SoftLayer to ensure migrations can be automated with minimal manual work," said James Strayer, vice president of product management, Racemi.

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

Racemi is an AWS Technology Partner that automates server migrations into and between Amazon EC2, Amazon VPC, and AWS GovCloud (US) Region. Racemi was awarded an AWS Partner Network Leadership Award at the most recent AWS re:Invent show.

Racemi has also teamed with IBM SoftLayer to offer no cost migrations to SoftLayer customers.

Racemi's DynaCenter migration software captures the entire server stack--including operating system, applications, and configuration--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.
