SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - October 05, 2016) - RiverMeadow Software™ Inc., developer of the RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS platform announces that Court Square Group, a strategic IT consulting firm, has had such great results with RiverMeadow's Cloud Migration SaaS that they have purchased a second subscription to the service, to keep up with customer demand to move workloads into VMware and AWS cloud environments.
Court Square has been using RiverMeadow to migrate a mix of Windows® (2003, 2008 and 2012) and Linux workloads to VMware and AWS environments. Some customers have hired Court Square to migrate workloads including Microsoft Business Talk, IBM MQ Series, Oracle RHLX, FTP Servers, SQL Server as well as custom developed applications. Court Square noted that RiverMeadow automation eliminates a significant amount of preparation and manual effort which typically extends the time and cost of cloud migration engagements. Additionally, because of RiverMeadow's architecture, HIPAA compliance for the applications and data are maintained in transit between the source and the target cloud.
"It was an easy decision to purchase a second subscription to the RiverMeadow service. We have been extremely pleased with RiverMeadow's migration automation platform. RiverMeadow SaaS gives us the opportunity to migrate customer workloads with minimal customer downtime, and the intelligent synchronization process alleviates dependencies on multiple customer outage windows that we need to deal with," states Keith Parent, CEO Court Square Group. "This allows Court Square Group to maintain our position as an innovative partner to our customers, always seeking out the most advanced and cost effective solutions to ensure maximum value for them."
Parent went on to explain that performing migrations between physical and virtual environments takes too long with manual methods and repurposed backup tools. Before using RiverMeadow SaaS, downtime windows were twenty or more hours, and there was no guarantee the applications and workloads would work once they were moved. RiverMeadow's method allows migrations to run without affecting the source server uptime, enabling the user to verify its operation in the target environment and then, with a single click, perform a "sync." Conducting live migrations reduces downtime to three hours or less because during the initial migration the source servers remain up and in production.
