Cloud Migration Start-up Hires VP Product Management and Marketing

James Strayer joins Racemi from Symantec

Racemi on Monday announced that James Strayer has joined as vice president of product management and marketing, a newly created position for the growing company of datacenter automation software, which facilitates migration to cloud computing.

Strayer joins from Symantec and will report to company CEO, Lawrence Guillory. He brings more than a decade of product management and marketing experience. At the Fortune 500 company, Symantec, he led product management efforts for the Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) business and worked with key OEM partners such as HP and Dell. Before that, at Altiris, he contributed to the company's growth, which led to the acquisition by Symantec for $830 million in April 2007. Strayer graduated from Utah Valley University with a degree in Life Sciences.

"James is an important addition to our team as we build out our network of partners using Racemi technology to automate the datacenter and enable migration of server images across private and public clouds," said Lawrence Guillory, CEO of Racemi. "His experience is perfectly matched to work with OEMs and managed service providers (MSPs) wanting to add cloud on-boarding capabilities to their offerings."

Racemi's easy-to-integrate OEM automation technology migrates server images in the datacenter, as well as to cloud computing resources like Amazon, GoGrid, Rackspace and Terremark. It does this regardless of the underlying operating system, application software, configuration, or even the physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure.

Racemi has been named a Cool Vendor and has received other industry awards. The cloud migration software technology is immediately available for OEM partner evaluations with more information available at www.racemi.com/cloud2.htm.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
