Earthlink Implements RiverMeadow's Cloud Migration SaaS

EarthLink has enabled their Cloud Hosting Services with the RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS. As part of the agreement, RiverMeadow migrations will be bundled with EarthLink Cloud Hosting offers, to facilitate customer onboarding.

RiverMeadow said its Cloud Migration SaaS provides a low-touch, three-step, automated process to migrate physical, virtual or cloud-based servers into EarthLink Cloud Hosting environments. There is no need to purchase software or install agents and workloads can remain in production during the migration process. For more complex workload migrations, EarthLink and partner service teams will be able to use RiverMeadow’s RESTFul API to apply custom steps.

“The intricacy of migrating server workloads into the cloud can make the process difficult, time consuming and expensive,” said Mark Shirman, President and CEO, RiverMeadow. “The RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS makes it fast, easy and affordable for businesses of all sizes to onboard into EarthLink Cloud Hosting accounts with a single, bundled SaaS platform.”

As part of the agreement, RiverMeadow migrations will be bundled with EarthLink Cloud Hosting offers, to facilitate customer on-boarding.

RiverMeadow Closes $12 Million for Cloud Migration Tools

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.

RiverMeadow Releases Cloud Migration SaaS Version 2.0

RiverMeadow Software, a start-up based in San Jose, California and Westford, Massachusetts, has updated 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.

With AWS, Most of the workloads are spun up as  greenfield (new workloads).   RiverMeadow's goal is to make the difficult process of moving out of AWS fairly into a simpler and automated process.  RiverMeadow also aims to simplify migration into and between the various OpenStack clouds and other cloud OS's.

"The cost and complexity of migrating virtual, physical or cloud-based servers into the cloud can be overwhelming — averaging thousands of dollars per server and man-months’ worth of operational effort,” said Mark Shirman, CEO, RiverMeadow. “With the enhancements delivered in RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS 2.0, we continue to remove the barriers of entry for just a fraction of the cost and without the operational headaches, so organizations can immediately gain the economic and practical benefits of cloud computing.”
