Datacenter Automation: Press Release

Racemi Eases Cloud Migrations to Amazon and Rackspace

Automates provisioning of server workloads from private clouds for build out of hybrid clouds

Racemi's latest DynaCenter image-based provisioning and automation software enables fast, easy and flexible hybrid cloud implementations for Amazon EC2 and Rackspace by automating movement of server workloads from on-premises datacenters or private clouds.

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. This provides flexibility to deploy workloads where it makes most sense, factoring in cost, security, privacy, performance. For example, hybrid and private clouds can better address certain enterprise requirements, especially related to privacy and security.

"The reality is that not all IT services make sense to host in the cloud. Most of all, IT needs flexibility," said Lawrence Guillory, CEO of Racemi. "We make it incredibly easy to build-out dynamic datacenters and cloud computing implementations working in concert. Our technology helps create new levels of flexibility for datacenter managers and administrators by automating movement of datacenter workloads - whether those are on physical or virtual servers - in the datacenter or the cloud."

Racemi makes its software available to technology partners to incorporate into their product offerings to provide an easy path for OEMs wanting to add cloud-ready capabilities to their offerings.

DynaCenter 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.

Racemi's technology compares the configurations of the source and destination servers and reconfigures the necessary components and device drivers "in-flight" to ensure that the image can be run in the new environment, whether private datacenter or public cloud.
