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.

CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of recent developments, including containers and Docker, distributed resource management, and DevOps tool chains and processes. The resulting infrastructure and management framework must be optimized for distributed and scalable applications, take advantage of innovation stemming from a wide variety of open source projects, span hybrid environments, and be adaptable to equally fundamental changes happen...
CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Bill Schmarzo, Tech Chair of "Big Data | Analytics" of upcoming CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York (November 12-13, 2018, New York City) today announced the outline and schedule of the track. "The track has been designed in experience/degree order," said Schmarzo. "So, that folks who attend the entire track can leave the conference with some of the skills necessary to get their work done when they get back to their offices. It actually ties back to some work that I'm doing at the University of San Francisco which creates an "Outcomes-Centric Business Analytics" degree." Bill Schmarzo, author of "Big Data: Understanding How Data Powers Big Business" and "Big Data MBA: Driving Business Strategies with Data Science" is responsible for guiding the technology strategy within Hitachi Vantara for IoT and Analytics.

For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
