RackWare Management Module 5.0 Provides Enterprises with a New Way to Achieve Easy, Seamless, Cost-Effective Cloud Computing Management

FREMONT, CA – March 07, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — RackWare, Inc., the leader in enabling comprehensive cloud computing management for the enterprise, today released version 5.0 of its flagship offering, RackWare Management Module (RMM). RMM 5.0 is the latest generation of a powerful enterprise software that allows companies to scale across private, public, or hybrid cloud environments more easily, seamlessly and cost-effectively than ever before.

New features and functionality in RackWare’s RMM 5.0 include:

  • Whitelist/blacklist drives – flexible support for networked storage and the ability to mark networked drives as whitelist or blacklist and selectively include them for migration to the cloud
  • Backup wizard – includes policy configuration on top of a disaster recovery policy. Users can configure two sets of recovery points – short-term and long-term.
  • Single file restore
  • Auto provisioning for VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director®
  • Openstack Auto provisioning
  • Data Guard – disaster recovery (DR) policy integration with Oracle Data Guard

“With RMM 5.0, we have complemented our robust disaster recovery features with backup,” stated Sash Sunkara, CEO, RackWare, Inc. “Historically, there was DR and there was backup and they were separate installations. DR was very expensive and hardware focused. With cloud technology, we’re able to merge backup and DR technology. Today, you can have a comprehensive solution and strategy. DR no longer has to be hardware-centric and can be merged with your backup strategy. This is a radical new approach with many benefits.”

“Our goals were to achieve greater flexibility in order to meet the requirements of our aggressive business continuity initiatives. RackWare offered us a powerful solution that allowed us to focus on our critical systems while positioning ourselves for future initiatives,” said Joseph Tufano, vice president and CIO, St. John’s University.

“VMware vCloud® Air™ allows organizations to write, deploy, and manage applications in the cloud the same way they do today with existing on-premises infrastructure. With RMM 5.0 and vCloud Air, enterprise IT organizations can provide a high level of protection for their company’s workloads, including cloud-to-cloud replication, databases, physical servers, and multi-hypervisor replication, while driving greater efficiencies by protecting – but not pre-provisioning – workloads,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president, Product Development, Cloud Services, VMware.

“By combining cloud technology with RackWare technology, we’re bringing in a new era of disaster recovery and backup. RMM 5.0 addresses the requirements and expectations of our customers: flexibility, scalability, mobility and seamless access to applications and data anytime, anywhere,” said Sunkara.
