"Until now, the costs and level of effort required to move applications to the cloud have off-set projected savings. Automating that effort alters the equation of using the public Cloud as an extension of the data center."
PBR moves datacenter to Rackspace Cloud --- Enterprise apps in minutes
When Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) chose to modernize their datacenter by moving it to the cloud, applications quickly took center stage. Modern apps were fairly straight forward to move; the challenge was how to effectively move highly modified, but largely undocumented production apps.
PBR’s consultant Virtessential addressed that challenge using appzero’s zapp migration to automate identification, extraction, and migration of Windows server applications to any cloud. Hypervisor agnostic and VM-free, zapp migration moves only the app --unchanged and running on any server, anywhere -- in minutes, not days.
Join appzero's Greg O'Connor, Sean Wedige, CTO for the Global Enterprise Solutions segment at Rackspace Hosting, and Virtessential IT consultancy principals Steve Blake and David McCluskey as they discuss this real world example of moving an entire enterprise's datacenter to the cloud and show PBR's server apps moving to the Rackspace Hybrid cloud. It will be of particular interest to Cloud Service Providers (CSP) and Managed Service Providers (MSP) looking to increase their Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) by giving their customers a solution that easily migrates applications to their cloud. It will also interest VMware partners who are looking to extend their server consolidation business with a cloud migration practice.
