RackWare Announces the First Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service Solution for SoftLayer

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2015) - IBM InterConnect -- RackWare, the software provider that integrates data center and cloud resources into a scalable and intelligently managed computing environment, today announced the availability of RackWare Management Module (RMM) for Self-Service Disaster Recovery (DR) to SoftLayer, an IBM Company ("SoftLayer"). RackWare will showcase the solution in booth #841 at the IBM InterConnect Conference, February 22-26 in Las Vegas.

The new solution, available April 2nd, enables enterprises to use SoftLayer as part of their DR strategy, and introduces a self-service wizard that guides an IT end-user through the steps involved in replicating a workload environment into SoftLayer and setting up sync, DR and failback policies. RackWare allows enterprises to use SoftLayer as a seamless extension of their internal infrastructure, including legacy, as well as modern applications, for easy DR, migrations and hybrid scaling. Now, with the self-service wizard for SoftLayer, application owners can protect all workloads including physical, cloud and virtual, to SoftLayer with click-through ease and without the need to acquire new server, storage and networking equipment for DR.
