RiverMeadow Software Adds VMware vCloud(R) Suite 5.1 to List of Cloud Platforms Supported by Their enCloud Software Service

RiverMeadow to Demonstrate API Integration Between the enCloud Software Service and VMware vSphere® and vCloud Director® at VMworld® 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/27/12 -- VMWORLD 2012 -- RiverMeadow Software™ Inc., developer of the enCloud™ software service, the world's only automated server migration solution developed specifically for Service Provider IaaS platforms, will demonstrate support for the VMware vCloud® Suite 5.1 at VMworld® 2012 August 26th - 29th in booth #436. API integration between the enCloud service and VMware vCloud Suite 5.1 provides VMware service providers and enterprise customers with SaaS-delivered access to a start-to-finish, automated solution for onboarding physical, virtual and cloud servers into their vCloud stacks. API integration between the enCloud service and vCloud emphasizes RiverMeadow's commitment to supporting and recognizing VMware as a leading virtualization and cloud infrastructure provider.

The enCloud service is an easy to access SaaS based, multi-tenant solution supporting unlimited concurrent connections. By simply providing their vCloud URL and credentials, service providers and enterprise customers can connect into the enCloud service API and automate the onboarding of physical, virtual and cloud servers into their vCloud instance without ever taking them out of production during the process.

The enCloud service provides all the necessary processes to automate and complete the migration process from start-to-finish.

  • Set-up gathers source server characteristics and access rights.
  • Collection takes a snapshot of the source server.
  • Conversion enables the source image to operate on VMware vSphere®.
  • Deployment moves the collected source server image into the target vCloud stack.
  • Synchronization completes the migration process, collecting any residual transaction data occurring post the collection process from the source server (still in production) and migrates it to the deployed instance in the target vCloud stack.

"VMware has a large service provider channel and is one of most respected and one of the largest cloud infrastructure and services vendors in the industry. It was an easy decision to align our resources behind the VMware vCloud® platform. VMware's commitment to efficiency, agility and choice makes them a perfect partner for our enCloud software service that supports migrations into private, public and hybrid clouds. Our goal is to make cloud onboarding as easy, fast and cost efficient as possible. Support for the vCloud platform puts that possibility in the hands of thousands of VMware customers," said Mark Shirman, RiverMeadow CEO. "Support for VMware vCloud® Suite 5.1 technologies and cloud services is a strategic move for RiverMeadow. RiverMeadow's demonstrable integration with the VMware vCloud API is an indication of our strong support for VMware vCloud."

VMware vCloud Services offer a broad array of VMware-compatible infrastructure clouds built on a secure platform and delivered by vCloud partner service providers, enabling customers to easily extend, manage and scale their datacenter workloads to a public cloud. With more than 150 VMware vCloud Powered Services in 29 countries, VMware and its VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) partners together form one of the leading public cloud ecosystems in the world. "RiverMeadow's enCloud software service delivers a proven solution for automating the migration of physical and virtual servers into the cloud," said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances at VMware. "Quickly and efficiently migrating workloads into Cloud environments is a critical step in our customers' journey to the Cloud. The enCloud service is a great addition to the VMware vCloud ecosystem, delivering incredible value to our service provider partners and enterprise customers."

RiverMeadow is demonstrating its enCloud service's support for VMware vCloud at VMworld 2012, today through August 29th in booth #436.
