Expanded Channel Program Extends RackWare’s Cloud Management Solution to Broader Customer Base Through Strategic Partnerships
RackWare, the software provider that integrates data center and cloud resources into a scalable and intelligently managed computing environment, recently 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.
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.

“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.”
“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 Director of CloudFirst Innovation and CTO of IBM’s Cloud Services Division.
“We are pleased to partner with RackWare to help our customers dramatically reduce the cost and complexity involved in cloud migration and cloud disaster recovery projects. RackWare’s innovative technology allows them to quickly and intelligently migrate virtual, as well as physical workloads, thus helping our customers to ‘cloudify’ all of their workloads effortlessly,” said Shoichi Morita, CEO of Networld Corporation in Japan
“While efficient scaling to the cloud has been a topic of discussion in the industry for a few years, RackWare is one of the few vendors with a solution today that allows for cloud scaling in the real world. We are pleased to resell RackWare Management Module and help our customers solve the disaster recovery, migration and scaling problems that they face today,” said Mike Strohl, CEO of Entisys.
RackWare allows enterprises to use the public cloud as just another resource for their internal infrastructure — for disaster recovery, as well as scaling purposes. With its unique ability to be platform and cloud agnostic, RackWare’s flagship solution, the RackWare Management Module (RMM), allows workloads to be ported between any platform, virtual or physical, and any cloud. RackWare has moved thousands of workloads for hundreds of customers and has partnerships with large Service Providers and VARs. RackWare was founded in 2009 and is based in Santa Clara, California.
