RackWare is adding Kubernetes capability to its offering for allowing businesses to easily migrate to and protect containers in the cloud. RackWare’s new Kubernetes offering, SWIFT, augments RackWare’s server migration and disaster recovery solutions. SWIFT enables the movement of containers from on-premise to the cloud, and from cloud-to-cloud.
Benefits of RackWare SWIFT
With RackWare SWIFT, clients can choose any target cloud or platform technology regardless of existing platform constraints. The solution supports all the major Kubernetes offerings from the cloud service providers, including Oracle (OKE), Azure (AKS), Google (GKE), AWS (EKS), and IBM/Openshift.
Todd Matters, Chief Technology Officer at RackWare, said,
“Kubernetes is an increasingly important element of datacenter IT and extending support for both migration and Disaster Recovery in our portfolio is exciting. We are entertaining a limited number of Beta deployments in the near term and will go full GA in Q4.”
RackWare SWIFT helps customers for solving multiple challenges with the features below:
- On-premise deployments transitioning to the cloud
- Minimization of downtime during migration/cutover
- Storage incompatibilities contributing to vendor lock-in
- Transformation to PaaS
- Container version/format incompatibilities inhibiting cross-platform mobility
