InterConnect 2016 will also feature a hands-on workshop, “Cloud Migration: Self-Service and Managed” on Wednesday, Feb 24. This lab will let participants experience how easy it is to migrate workloads into SoftLayer using RackWare’s technology by actually using the self-service portal to migrate sample workloads into SoftLayer.
“Seventy percent of enterprises are using cloud computing, and that number is sure to rise as more businesses discover the benefits of moving to the cloud, including lower capital and operating costs for data centers and improved application performance and resiliency,” said Sash Sunakara, RackWare’s CEO. “Most businesses that migrate to the cloud do so in a hybrid model, keeping certain key elements of their infrastructure in-house and under their direct control, while outsourcing less sensitive or core components. Integrating internal and external infrastructures can be a technical quagmire. RackWare addresses these challenges by delivering comprehensive cloud computing management for the enterprise, making cloud migration much easier, more seamless, scalable, flexible and cost effective.”
“Through RackWare’s integrated partnership with IBM SoftLayer, we offer a fully automated tool. There’s no agent required on the source or target server and no additional software required to be installed on servers. RackWare’s sync options increase flexibility as well reduce the cut-over window,” added Matters. “In short, RackWare’s cloud migration solution provides enterprises with a powerful foundation to build a truly cognitive, customer-driven digital enterprise that can scale and transform their business.”
