RackWare, a software provider that integrates data center and cloud resources into a scalable and intelligently managed computing environment, has announced its participation in the CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program. Inclusion in the program allows RackWare to offer RackWare Management Module (RMM) to businesses through the CenturyLink Cloud platform.
RackWare’s new solution enables enterprises to use CenturyLink Cloud as a seamless extension of their internal infrastructure, as well as modern applications, for easy disaster recovery (DR), migrations and hybrid scaling. With the new RackWare technology, enterprises would be able to move a workload from any source to CenturyLink Cloud quickly and with minimal errors.
RMM for CenturyLink Cloud offers hybrid scaling by automatically instantiating applications in CenturyLink Cloud when demand spikes and dropping them back into the internal site as demand recedes. Enterprises can move workloads from any source infrastructure, including physical, cloud and virtual, to CenturyLink instances “with push-button ease”.
The CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program allows participating technology companies to integrate their solutions with the CenturyLink Cloud platform. These add-on and business-ready solutions are available to CenturyLink’s cloud, hosting and network customers.
“As RackWare’s new out-of-the-box cloud automation solution joins our growing CenturyLink Cloud ecosystem, customers can expect to migrate their workloads to CenturyLink Cloud at less than one-tenth the cost and time compared to typical manual migrations,” said David Shacochis, Vice President of Cloud Platform at CenturyLink.
RackWare was founded in 2009 and is based in Milpitas, California. The company allows enterprises to use the public cloud as just another resource for their internal infrastructure – for disaster recovery, as well as scaling purposes.
