Windstream Works with Racemi for VMware vCloud Director-enabled Cloud Migration
May 14, 2014
Windstream (News - Alert) Hosted Solutions and Racemi are now working together to initiate a first-ever VMware vCloud Director-enabled cloud migration using Racemi Cloud Path. The move should help users to systematically move their existing physical and virtual servers into Windstream’s VMware hybrid cloud enabled multi-tenant cloud platform.
Matt Preschern, senior vice president and enterprise chief marketing officer at Windstream, stated, “Making cloud migration an easy, seamless process for our customers is a top priority for us at Windstream. Delivering this migration tool embodies the ‘smart solutions, personalized service’ we promise to each of our enterprise customers.”
The VMware vCloud Director is designed with all the necessary tools to give customers the ability to build secure private clouds, transforming the way IT delivers and manages infrastructure services and the way users access and consume these services, whereas, Windstream’s VMware based solutions dramatically improve the efficiency and availability of IT resources, applications and data in your organization, leveraging the flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost-savings of the cloud.
The Racemi Cloud Path SaaS (News - Alert) enables businesses to quickly and automatically migrate their existing physical and virtual servers into and between supported public cloud providers, without the need to purchase, install, or manage any infrastructure. Windstream plans to leverage this solution to quicken the process of server migration, allowing enterprise customers to continue daily business operations and not worry about downtime during the migration. To ensure seamless transition the Cloud Path’s self-service portal is said to be fully integrated into Windstream’s cloud portal.
Windstream explained that it makes the transitioning process to the cloud safe and seamless, without compromising productivity, security, end user services or budget. By making full use of the VMware features, Windstream seamlessly balances and migrates workloads in a systematic manner across multiple physical hosts without disruption and at the same time ensure the highest performance.
