The six 'R's of cloud migration strategy - Retire, Retain, Rehost, Replatform, Refactor/Re-architect, and Replace - are well known in the industry. Today, we introduce the vital new 'R': Revitalize. RiverMeadow's fully automated capabilities are set to revitalize your cloud migration journey.
Revitalizing Cloud Migration
Our solutions allow you to modernize application infrastructure as you move workloads to the cloud. This fully automated process can safely and cost-effectively revitalize your workloads, significantly improving your business case for migrating workloads to the public, private or hybrid cloud. With our solutions, you can decrease technical debt while significantly improving security & compliance, performance, standardization, and cost.
Eliminate Technical Debt with OS Modernization
Eliminate your technical debt by migrating and modernizing Operating Systems at scale with RiverMeadow's fully automated capabilities. Transition from Windows Server 2003, 2008 or 2012 to 2016, 2019 or 2022 or from Windows Desktop 7 or 10 to 11. For Linux distributions, we support upgrades from Red hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.x, 7.x to 8.7 or 9.1, Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.x, 7.x to 8.7 or 9.1, and CentOS 6.x to 7.9.
Revitalize Data Management with SQL Modernization
RiverMeadow's fully automated SQL Modernization capability allows you to revitalize your data management. Transition from SQL Server 2008, 2012, 2014, or 2016 to SQL Server 2016, 2019, or 2022 as you migrate to any public, private, or hybrid cloud. This revitalization not only saves millions of dollars but also upgrades your SQL Version at speed and scale.
Combined Modernization for Enhanced Efficiency
One of RiverMeadow's unique strengths is its ability to execute combined modernization. This means you can simultaneously modernize both your Windows Server Operating System and SQL Server version during the migration process. For example, if you're migrating from Windows Server 2008R2 with SQL Server 2008 or Windows Server 2012R2 with SQL Server 2012, you can upgrade to Windows Server 2019 and SQL Server 2019 all in one move.
This combined approach to modernization offers significant advantages. It ensures that your SQL Server version remains in sync and compatible with your operating system, avoiding potential conflicts or inefficiencies that could arise from unsynchronized upgrades. This harmony between your operating system and SQL Server fosters a more resilient and efficient IT environment, setting the stage for improved data handling and operations.
Embrace Open Source with Linux Distribution Conversion
Are you looking to reduce technical debt or take advantage of open source by switching from one Linux distro to another? RiverMeadow's fully automated OS conversion capability can help. Revitalize your Linux distributions by converting RHEL 6.x, 7.x to 8.7 or 9.1 to Oracle Enterprise Linux, Rocky or Alma; CentOS 6.x, 7.x to Red hat Enterprise Linux, Oracle Enterprise Linux, Rocky or Alma; or Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.x, 7.x to 8.7 or 9.1 to Red hat Enterprise Linux, Rocky or Alma.
Strengthen Security Posture with Post-Migration Automation
After migration, apply new security configurations, Day2 operations software, and OS hardening to your workloads. This step revitalizes your security & compliance and operationalization requirements, enhancing your security posture.
