RackWare has announced the release of RackWare Management Module 5.0 – the latest generation of this enterprise software that would allow companies to scale across private, public, or hybrid cloud environments more easily and seamlessly than ever before.
“With RMM 5.0, we have complemented our robust disaster recovery features with backup,” said Sash Sunkara, CEO, RackWare. “Historically, there was DR and there was backup and they were separate installations. DR was very expensive and hardware focused. With cloud technology, we’re able to merge backup and DR technology. Today, you can have a comprehensive solution and strategy. DR no longer has to be hardware-centric and can be merged with your backup strategy. This is a radical new approach with many benefits.”
New features and functionality in RackWare’s RMM 5.0 include:
- Whitelist/blacklist drives – flexible support for networked storage and the ability to mark networked drives as whitelist or blacklist and selectively include them for migration to the cloud
- Backup wizard – includes policy configuration on top of a disaster recovery policy. Users can configure two sets of recovery points – short-term and long-term.
- Single file restore
- Auto provisioning for VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Director
- Openstack Auto provisioning
- Data Guard – disaster recovery (DR) policy integration with Oracle Data Guard
“VMware vCloud Air allows organizations to write, deploy, and manage applications in the cloud the same way they do today with existing on-premises infrastructure,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president, Product Development, Cloud Services, VMware. “With RMM 5.0 and vCloud Air, enterprise IT organizations can provide a high level of protection for their company’s workloads, including cloud-to-cloud replication, databases, physical servers, and multi-hypervisor replication, while driving greater efficiencies by protecting – but not pre-provisioning – workloads.”
RackWare was founded in 2009 and is based in Fremont, California. The company’s solutions are designed to bring intelligence and automation to the cloud, to improve availability for enterprises, provide greater flexibility for enterprise IT users, and reduce costs for enterprise IT providers.
