Windstream Hosted Solutions has partnered with Racemi, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider, to provide migration services for companies moving their existing physical and virtual servers to Windstream’s cloud.
For customers seeking to migrate data, applications and systems to a cloud environment, the transition process can be a cumbersome. Currently, many companies move data using either an external storage device, such as a hard drive, or rebuild servers from the ground up. Racemi’s Cloud Path SaaS platform automates server migration, and the data transfer occurs in the background. Meanwhile, the production server stays up and running. Additionally, Cloud Path’s self-service portal has been fully integrated into Windstream’s own cloud portal.
“We know from experience with many businesses that manual, time-consuming cloud migration creates barriers to cloud entry,” said Chris Nicolini, Windstream’s senior vice president of data center operations. “We deliberately partnered with Racemi, given their history and experience in providing solutions that make cloud transitions seamless and efficient.”
“Cloud migration can be daunting for many businesses, not only because of the complexity of the solutions, but also due to the perception that critical time and data may be lost during migrations,” said Matt Preschern, senior vice president and enterprise CMO at Windstream. “Windstream’s innovative migration option virtually eliminates concerns regarding downtime, and continues to support our ‘smart solutions, personalized service’ brand promise to our customers.”
The Windstream Hosted Solutions suite, available via channel partners, includes public, private, and hybrid cloud products, available as managed and dedicated hosting solutions, which can be combined with voice and data services such as VoIP, SIP trunking, MPLS,and dedicated high-speed internet.
