RISC Networks and RiverMeadow Join Forces

RISC Networks and RiverMeadow Join Forces(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – RISC Networks, an industry leading IT Operations Analytics developer in areas of cloud computing readiness and planning and IT infrastructure performance, today announced that the company is working together with RiverMeadow on an integrated workload Discovery, Planning and Migration solution. Using RISC Networks CloudScape workload dependency visualization and cloud readiness analytics, along with RiverMeadow’s SaaS, businesses can quickly find workloads on their network and easily move them to optimal target clouds.

“The challenge of migrating enterprise applications can be complex and expensive, which is why many IT departments struggle to execute on their cloud migration initiatives,” said Jeremy Littlejohn, CEO and Chief Analyst at RISC Networks. “These friction points can be overcome by having a simple cloud migration process in place and visibility to workload performance, dependencies and an effective plan. With this new, integrated solution from RiverMeadow and RISC Networks, workloads can now be migrated to the most ideal cloud environment, based on the requirements of the migration plan.”

The RiverMeadow and RISC Networks solution leverages RISC Networks’ ability to scan a network and return a viewpoint of connected assets. These workloads can then be grouped into a plan that can be loaded into RiverMeadow’s SaaS and migrated together to target cloud environments. RISC NetworksCloudscape provides pre-migration assessment and planning automation, which allows migration administrators to pinpoint the most ideal cloud environment for the RiverMeadow SaaS to move the workloads to. By providing increased visibility across the entire IT infrastructure before, during and after the cloud migration, the result is faster, more efficient cloud migration and onboarding.

“Together, RiverMeadow and RISC Networks are providing an all-in-one, target-optimized cloud migration solution that makes it possible to efficiently and securely migrate batches of workloads, and systems of workloads, that are interconnected across multiple servers,” said Mark Shirman, president and CEO of RiverMeadow Software. “No longer do migration administrators need to bring together point solutions on their own to solve the pre and execution stages of migration. By seamlessly integrating the RiverMeadow SaaS’ and RISC Networks CloudScape all sectors of the cloud services market now have the ability to quickly, easily and effectively move to the cloud.”

The RISC Networks and RiverMeadow integrated solution will be showcased at Cisco Live at RISC Networks’ booth #237, RiverMeadow’s booth #528. Additional details on the integrated solution can be found athttp://www.riscnetworks.com/cisco/cloud-onboarding and http://www.rivermeadow.com.
