Need to get your data center workloads over to IBM SoftLayer Cloud?


RackWare provides software that automatically decouples the workload (OS, Applications and Data) from whatever infrastructure it is on, and moves it easily, quickly, and painlessly to SoftLayer.  No more manually setting up the OS, copying, and reinstalling your applications and data, and discovering errors in the migration process.  There’s a better way:  RackWare allows you to move a workload from ANY source to SoftLayer with minimal errors, and headaches.


Move from ANY source infrastructure to SoftLayer instances with RMM for SoftLayer


– ANY physical server

– ANY cloud based workload

– ANY virtual based workload

– AGENTLESS – no agents need to be installed on sources or targets

– LIVE CAPTURE – production server can be captured without downtime



Enable failover and failback to protect any SoftLayer instance with RMM for SoftLayer DRaaS


Sometimes, your SoftLayer instance will go down.  It could be from a data center problem, DOS attack, hacking attempt, or some other unforseen and rare occurrence.  That’s why SoftLayer customers use RackWare’s DR platform to replicate their mission critical workloads back to their traditional data center or other cloud infrastructures, or to another SoftLayer geographical location.  Should anything unforeseen happen to those mission critical instances, RMM for SoftLayer, DR Edition will activate the “hot backup” instance and take over workload.  After the outage has occurred and the production instances restored, RMM for Softlayer fail’s back to the original instances by resynchronizing all the changes back during the outage to the origin instance.
