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.

Moving to Azure is the path to digital transformation, but not every journey is effective. Organizations that start with a cohesive, well-planned migration strategy can avoid common mistakes and stay a step ahead of the competition. Learn from Atmosera CEO, Jon Thomsen about the opportunities and challenges found in three pivotal phases of the journey to the cloud: Evaluation and Architecting, Migration and Management, and Optimization & Innovation. In each phase, there are distinct insights that can give a company the edge and make sure cloud adoption is closely aligned to core business goals. Keeping these in mind will make your migration to the Azure simpler and more effective.
Cloud is the motor for innovation and digital transformation. CIOs will run 25% of total application workloads in the cloud by the end of 2018, based on recent Morgan Stanley report. Having the right enterprise cloud strategy in place, often in a multi cloud environment, also helps companies become a more intelligent business. Companies that master this path have something in common: they create a culture of continuous innovation. In his presentation, Dilipkumar Khandelwal outlined the latest research and steps companies can take to make innovation a daily work habit by using enterprise cloud computing. He shared examples from companies that have benefited from enterprise cloud computing and took a look into the future of how the cloud helps companies become a more intelligent business.
Data center, on-premise, public-cloud, private-cloud, multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, IoT, AI, edge, SaaS, PaaS... it's an availability, security, performance and integration nightmare even for the best of the best IT experts. Organizations realize the tremendous benefits of everything the digital transformation has to offer. Cloud adoption rates are increasing significantly, and IT budgets are morphing to follow suit. But distributing applications and infrastructure around increases risk, introduces complexity and challenges availability at every turn. To embrace DX and to come out on top, there are four underlying principles that should guide you. Understanding these four essentials along with their relevance and impact will elevate you to DX Hero status now. Jonathan will provide a high-level overview of these principles and how some of his organization's clients have embraced them w...
DevOps has long focused on reinventing the SDLC (e.g. with CI/CD, ARA, pipeline automation etc.), while reinvention of IT Ops has lagged. However, new approaches like Site Reliability Engineering, Observability, Containerization, Operations Analytics, and ML/AI are driving a resurgence of IT Ops. In this session our expert panel will focus on how these new ideas are [putting the Ops back in DevOps orbringing modern IT Ops to DevOps].
