Unitrends Boomerang virtual appliance streamlines VMware virtual machine migration to Amazon Web Services and enables cloud-based Disaster Recovery as a Service

BURLINGTON, Mass., July 8, 2015 — / — Unitrends today announced it will feature Unitrends Boomerang™ at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Summit New York, which will take place on July 9, 2015 at the Javits Convention Center. Unitrends Boomerang is an easy-to-use and cost-effective virtual appliance for replicating VMware virtual machines (VMs) to the AWS cloud for low-cost backup and disaster recovery. Boomerang also automatically remodels replicated VMs to native Amazon Machine Images for fast execution, providing an ideal solution for migrating from on-premise systems to the cloud and for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). To date, Unitrends customers have successfully migrated thousands of VMs using Boomerang.

“Boomerang helped us to achieve our goal of creating a hybrid disaster recovery solution,” said Jeffrey Davidson, IT team lead at IASTA, a Selectica company.  “We evaluated several alternatives, and Boomerang was the most effective. It easily integrated into our VMware environment, without the need to shut down our servers. Boomerang also provides block-level replication in AWS and enables us to quickly resume our operations in the cloud if necessary.”

The AWS Summit New York is a free event designed to educate new customers about the AWS platform and offer existing customers information on architecture best practices and new services. The event will feature customer stories, a keynote with updates on AWS services, and breakout sessions covering topics such as architecture, performance and operations.
