RackWare has announced the opening of its Channel Partner Program to Service Providers and VARs globally. The expanded program allows more partners and customers to benefit from the RackWare advantage: the ability to flexibly move, protect and scale workloads from anywhere-to-anywhere, including cloud, virtual and physical infrastructures.

“We have had mutually profitable engagements with our existing Service Provider and VAR partners by helping their customers to easily migrate workloads to their cloud of choice,” said Sash Sunkara, CEO at RackWare. “We are delighted to open our partner program to additional partners to help them dramatically reduce the complexity involved in cloud migrations.”

RackWare has already made significant momentum with key Service Provider and VAR partnerships, including with IBM SoftLayer, CenturyLink, QTS, Peer 1, OnRamp, Pea Soup, Entisys, and MBS Tech Services.

Since 2009, the company has moved thousands of workloads for hundreds of customers, underscoring the need for application portability between sites and clouds. RackWare’s flexible and automated cloud management solution, RackWare Management Module (RMM), enables enterprises to easily move their workloads seamlessly between private, public or hybrid cloud environments, while allowing them to expand and add cloud resources as needed..

Launched in July, the latest version of RackWare’s solution, RMM 3.0, now includes added cloud disaster recovery functionality. RMM 3.0 drastically lowers the cost of disaster recovery, allowing enterprises to ensure protection of mission-critical IT resources in case of planned and unplanned outages. With RMM 3.0, partners will enable customers to seamlessly extend existing IT architecture into the cloud for minimal disruption.

“The latest RackWare Management Module release brings us tremendous intelligence and flexibility in building a disaster recovery plan with a failover site in SoftLayer. With it, our customers are able to dramatically reduce the complexity and cost of their disaster recovery projects while protecting their crucial workloads,” said Mac Devine, IBM Distinguished engineer and director of CloudFirst Innovation and CTO of IBM’s Cloud Services Division.
