What does RiverMeadow do?
RiverMeadow SaaS solves the challenge of migrating large, complex workloads cross hypervisors into and between Cloud environments. Purposely built for the Cloud, RiverMeadow SaaS is a fast, secure, automated Cloud onboarding solution that leverages APIs to mirror current server environments and move them into public, private or hybrid Clouds without interrupting current workload function and performance. The automation enables multiple servers and large workloads to be effectively migrated at the same time, saving time and costs associated with migrations.
RiverMeadow SaaS also enables Cloud Service Providers and Carriers to move workloads into the cloud more efficiently and at lower cost than other solutions available today. Easier, faster and more secure migrations enable rapid Cloud onboarding. RiverMeadow SaaS is deployed by leading cloud infrastructure and service brands such as Cisco, VMWare, Hewlett Packard and Ericsson. RiverMeadow’s innovative workload migration approach led to its selection by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 Companies to Watch and to it also being named a Gartner "Cool Vendor" in Cloud Management for 2013.
