Racemi Joins with Rackspace to Facilitate Migrations to Cloud

Easy migration of existing physical, virtual, or cloud applications to Rackspace Cloud Server

Racemi, provider of technology that accelerates migrations to cloud computing, on Wednesday announced it has joined the Cloud Tools Network with Rackspace Hosting, a specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry.

Through this joint collaboration, Rackspace Cloud customers can seamlessly migrate existing applications using Racemi Cloud Path, which migrates applications in their current tested and proven configuration without requiring server rebuilds or additional technology stacks.

Rackspace Cloud Tools is a showcase site for the company's strategic partners and independent developers to work with Rackspace Cloud in order to share tools, applications and services.

"Cloud Path users tell us that they love the speed of migrations, our Zero Risk licensing plan, and that our technology doesn't require any on-premises infrastructure," said James Strayer, vice president of product management, Racemi.

Racemi Cloud Path is a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering that allows businesses to migrate their existing applications into the cloud quickly, without costly professional services or rebuilding servers. The Cloud Path technology moves the entire server "stack" - operating system, applications and configuration.

"Migrating existing applications can be time-consuming, often requiring in-house or consulting personnel to rebuild servers from scratch," said Bob Bardwell, business development manager at Rackspace. "We are pleased to be working with an innovative company like Racemi that is addressing these migration challenges."
