Racemi Launches Server Image Migration Service

Racemi, a company that offers software to move Windows and Linux images from one bare-metal server to another, recently added cloud migrations to its portfolio. The company's new Cloud Path is a software as a service (SaaS) offering that lets administrators move server images to public cloud services.

Admins can use Cloud Path from a Web browser to migrate physical and virtual servers to infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud providers. Atlanta-based Racemi claims migrations will cost on average $800 less than performing manual re-imaging of data.

Pricing is determined by a usage-based model and eliminates the need to rely on experienced administrators, who can move server images without requiring templates or scripts. In addition to moving workloads from in-house systems to cloud-based servers, Cloud Path lets customers migrate cloud instances between different supported cloud providers.

Racemi charges $299 per successful migration, which includes an initial 20 GB of free storage. Customers can currently migrate Windows Server 2008 R2, Ret Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS systems to cloud services provided by Amazon Web Services, GoGrid, Rackspace and Verizon's Terremark. Racemi said it plans to support additional server OSes and cloud service providers over time.
