Datacenter-to-Cloud Migration Capabilities to be Shown at Cloud Expo

Racemi to showcase hybrid cloud on-boarding technology

At the upcoming Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, Racemi will be showcasing how enterprises can reduce their cost and increase flexibility by using their own server images to quickly and easily transition data center workloads to, or from, cloud computing resources like Amazon EC2, Terremark and Rackspace.

The event (http://cloudcomputingexpo.com) takes place in Santa Clara from November 1-4 and is expected to attract more than 5,000 attendees from 48 countries. Racemi is a Silver sponsor and will be at booth #110. Other exhibitors include CA Technologies, Amazon Web Services, Cisco, GoGrid, HP, IBM, Rackspace and Terremark.

"Migrating existing server images to and from clouds is among the most important requirements we hear from data center managers who are looking at the benefits of cloud computing," said Lawrence Guillory, CEO, Racemi "We'll show how our technology makes it easy for OEMs to integrate our automation software so that they can add cloud on-boarding capabilities to their offerings."

In addition, the company's co-founder and chief technology officer, Charlie Watt, will speak in a technical session, which is scheduled on Wednesday, November 3 at 9:55 a.m.

He will also participate in a CTO Power Panel discussion on Tuesday, November 2 at 7:15 p.m.

Racemi is scheduled at the Cloud Expo Demo theatre for a 15-minute presentation on Tuesday, November 2 at 10:30 a.m., where the company will provide details on its cloud migration software technology.

Racemi's easy-to-integrate OEM automation technology migrates server images regardless of underlying operating system, application software, configuration, or even the physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure.

The software uses image-based provisioning to enable the migration of server images between any machine type, physical or virtual, as well as on-premises and cloud computing implementations. It will even translate hypervisors to ensure that virtual machines work in the new cloud environment, such as converting VMware virtual machines to Hyper-V or Xen virtual machines.

The software captures the entire "personality" of a physical or virtual server, including Windows, Linux and UNIX operating systems, applications and the storage and network configurations, in a single bootable image. This image has the ability to migrate to the cloud, while maintaining the personality and configurations of the original server.

Server images are created through live capture so downtime is avoided. Plus, the automation software automatically injects the correct drivers in the migration process.

Racemi has been named a Cool Vendor and has received other industry awards. The latest version of DynaCenter is immediately available for OEM partner evaluations with more information available at www.racemi.com/technology.html.
