Amazon Web Services partners and supporters leveraged the re:Invent show to introduce new products, capabilities and services.
RackWare Supports AWS
RackWare, a provider of automated cloud management software, has announced the availability of RackWare Management Module (RMM) for Amazon Web Services (AWS), which will speed up data center migration and disaster recovery for AWS customers. Available on November 24, the RMM for AWS enables enterprises to use AWS as a seamless extension of their internal infrastructure, including legacy and modern applications, for disaster recovery (DR), migrations and hybrid scaling.
This means enterprises can easily move workloads from any source infrastructure including physical, cloud or virtual to AWS instances. By automatically decoupling and moving operating system, application and data workloads to AWS, RMM for AWS eliminates the issues associated with the typical manual set up, copying and migration process, said the company.
Trend Micro Deep Security Joins AWS Marketplace
Zayo, Digital Realty Form Alliance
Zayo Group, a global provider of bandwidth infrastructure services, has inked an alliance agreement with Digital Realty to offer cloud connectivity through Zayo. Under the agreement, Digital Realty customers will be able to access Zayo's Connect to the Cloud platform, which offers access to more than 24 leading cloud providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure and IBM SoftLayer.
The direct connect option will improve the user experience for enterprise customers by providing lower-latency connectivity, increased security and lower bandwidth costs, said the company. Digital Realty customers will be able to deploy hybrid cloud solutions via the connectivity platform as well as access pricing, place orders and view existing and pending services.
Zerto Previews Virtual Replication for AWS
Zerto previewed its Zerto Virtual Replication for Amazon Web Services at this week's AWS re:Invent. Zerto Virtual Replication is claimed as the first hypervisor-based replication solution to offer enterprise-class data protection and workload mobility from on-premise VMware environments to AWS, which extends hypervisor-based replication to the public cloud. This is a critical capability for enterprises that are implementing data centers that mix on-premise and public cloud elements, said the company.
Zerto supports continuous replication of workloads irrespective of hypervisor, storage or cloud. The company will release its latest version of the software, supporting continuous replication from VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V to AWS, in the first quarter of 2015.
