Migrating workflows to the cloud is critical in today’s business environment, but the process has always been beset by technical challenges and uncertainties. To minimize the risk associated with migrating applications to the cloud, we’re happy to announce that RiverMeadow and VMware are teaming up to deliver a premier cloud migration experience!

We’re doing this by offering start-to-finish “Test Drives” of workload migrations into VMware vCloud Hybrid Service at no cost for either the migration or the vCloud Hybrid Service account.  In addition, customers can also take advantage of a similar offer to migrate their workloads to a VMware vCloud Service Provider Cloud.

RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS removes the friction users usually encounter when moving workloads to the cloud by automating what would normally be complex manual steps in the onboarding process, and giving IT admins the ability to verify interoperability of their applications in the target cloud before the migration is final. This allows customers to enjoy true mobility from and between clouds.

Additionally, because RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS automates the migration of physical, virtual and cloud-based servers into public, private and cloud environments, it also allows users to easily migrate workloads to vCloud and other clouds as well. This automated process dramatically reduces the costs and resources traditionally associated with manual cloud migration. By teaming with VMware, RiverMeadow will help make the cloud migration process as seamless and cost efficient as possible for our customers, as well for the vast network of VMware vCloud Service Providers and partners.

RiverMeadow is a VMware Technical Alliance Partner and is a beta participant in the vCloud Hybrid Service ISV engagement framework, which provides technical guidance and engagement from VMware. VMware is also promoting the solution on the vCloud Hybrid Service Marketplace.
