Ready to move to the cloud? It’s about time! According to a recent white paper published by Rackspace, moving to the cloud can save companies hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. In this report, Rackspace compares the total cost of ownership (TCO) for self-managed on-premise to a managed hosted solution. The benefits highlighted in their white paper using a Rackspace dedicated hosting solution are astounding, saving around 37% TCO in a 3-year period compared to on-prem.

Server Workloads Aren’t Created Equal: What to Know When Virtualizing Mission Critical Applications

By Johanna Shirman on Apr 11, 2016 11:50:43 AM

When it comes to migrating server workloads to the cloud, not all applications are created equal. Mission-critical applications and workloads are typically the hardest to virtualize, and therefore they're the ones you need to be the most cautious about when making changes to the way they are run. They’re often the most complex and most critical to a business and questions around stakeholder buy-in, architecture, and ISV support and licensing must be addressed before making a move to the cloud. Unlike secondary applications, which can usually be virtualized in a self-contained manner, your mission-critical applications touch a wider range of people, processes and technologies.

Are we serving a market, or remaking a market?

By Johanna Shirman on Sep 30, 2015 11:28:48 AM

By Richard Scannell, CEO, RiverMeadow Software

One of the things I get asked about a lot is the size of the market for companies like RiverMeadow - if migration is a “one and done” problem and therefore a limited market size.  We have a number of different ways of deriving market size for RiverMeadow, all of which point to a market of about $2B annually in this space – not exactly irrelevant.  However, we believe the market, even at that size,  is limited today simply because of the limitations of the existing tools.  Today, migrations are difficult, risky and expensive – so people do them as infrequently as possible.  But, what if migrations were simple, risk free and really cheap – what might happen then?

As IT professionals, a lot has changed in our world over the last 20 years. With each significant shift, some of us have jumped in with both feet while others have tepidly tested the water with a single toe, and some were dragged along kicking and screaming.

We’ve gone from being the only ones who knew how to build and manage servers to becoming consumers of clouds. We went from being sys admins that did everything once and then forgot it to embracing DevOps to automate our world.  We’re no longer perceived as the choke point for implementing new technologies; instead, we’ve become the enablers—the most important part of the product development value chain.

Here we are. Yet this is only the beginning.
