RackWare Extends Lead in Cloud Management, Introduces Advanced Hybrid Cloud Management Suite
May 18 17
RackWare announced a new product suite that expands upon its RMM platform for cloud migration and data protection. The Advanced Hybrid Cloud Management Suite extends the image management, mobility, and data protection capabilities of the newly released RMM 6.0 platform and provides enterprises with a single solution to move, protect, and manage their business in the cloud. According to IDC's latest CloudView study, over 70% of heavy cloud users are considering a hybrid cloud strategy. The new product suite solves several key challenges facing enterprise customers: how to move and manage complex and legacy applications to the cloud, how to provide true application mobility across the hybrid cloud environment, and how to control and reduce cloud and IT costs. Prior to RackWare, enterprises were burdened with multiple tools to handle specific needs around migration, disaster recovery, backup, and application management. Those tools also tended to be specific for physical or virtual environments, thus further adding to the complexity of managing workloads in the data center. RackWare RMM 6.0, featuring the Advanced Hybrid Cloud Management Suite, solves these challenges by providing a single platform that handles physical and virtual applications, regardless of hypervisors, cloud providers, or location in the hybrid cloud environment. The RackWare RMM 6.0 platform enables economical cloud computing for enterprises by providing administrative oversight and governance, including policy based usage limits, auditing, metering, billing, and reporting. For cloud users, it delivers a self-service portal for managing, testing, developing, and distributing golden templates, enabling organizations to manage applications efficiently and flexibly in the hybrid cloud. Application mobility is a serious challenge for enterprise managers. Virtualized applications in homogeneous hypervisor environments have achieved better mobility, but cross hypervisor mobility and applications on bare metal continue to be a big challenge. Complexity of the application further exacerbates this mobility challenge. Clustered applications such as those on Oracle Real Application Clusters and Network Attached Storage, as well as those on tiered and legacy systems, can't be handled by point products and require costly rearchitecting to achieve any degree of mobility. RMM 6.0 with Advanced Hybrid Cloud Management removes the shackles from virtually any application, providing mobility in an automated, cost effective manner that reduces time, resources, and risk. Cost management is another impediment facing IT organizations, yet data centers are becoming more and more costly in both operating and capital expenses. RackWare provides intelligence by allowing application workloads to be properly provisioned and deployed in hybrid clouds, while balancing performance and cost. The AutoParkingTM and AutoScaling policies in RMM 6.0 ensure that cloud resources are only consumed based on the performance profile. RackWare policies and automation simplify and reduce costs during migration to the cloud, as well as provide data protection and application management in the cloud.
