RiverMeadow Software, a start-up based in San Jose, California and Westford, Massachusetts, has closed a $12 million Series B financing round to support its automated server migration solution developed specifically for carrier and service provider clouds.
RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS version 2.0 automates the migration process for moving both Linux and Windows servers into public, private or hybrid clouds. Unlike other solutions that migrate at the application level and have to account for shared libraries, registry entries and other complex interoperability issues, the RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS migrates whole servers and disk volumes at the OS level.
RiverMeadow currently supports AWS and OpenStack. Support for Microsoft Azure (Hyper-V) is on the roadmap for later this year.
Investors in the current funding round included Cisco, Violin Memory and others.
In April, RiverMeadow announced that Cisco will use the RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS tool in its Cloud On-Boarding Service offerings to help customers easily move entire server workloads to public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
