SAN JOSE and ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich, Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RiverMeadow Software Inc., a leading provider of server migration automation technology, and WSM International, the leader in cloud and server migration services, have partnered to deliver a new service that helps mid-market and large enterprise companies move computing workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Google Cloud and other hosting platforms. Now, companies looking for trusted expertise and execution when moving to the public or private cloud can easily avail themselves of the tools and services and years of experience offered by RiverMeadow and WSM. 

The new service is available immediately to customers that are thinking about or already engaged in a move to the cloud. 

“WSM and RiverMeadow have successfully completed some very complex migrations over the past year, migrating hundreds of servers for customers, so this agreement really formalizes our relationship,” said Jim Jordan, president and CEO of RiverMeadow. “The services delivered by WSM have proven to be a perfect complement to our migration software technology so that together we’ve been moving customers to the cloud on time, on budget and with no disruption to business operations.” 

WSM executives have joined the RiverMeadow industry advisory board to provide input on product direction so that the cross-hypervisor, Lift & Shift server migration software efficiently automates as much as possible the process of moving workloads to cloud computing. 

“We have experience with all types of automation software for cloud migrations and have found RiverMeadow’s among the best,” said Ryan Pelerin, founder and CEO of WSM. “Plus, the RiverMeadow support has been outstanding so we’ve already made great strides together in our relationship and efforts to make server migrations to cloud as cost effective and easy as possible for our customers.” 

RiverMeadow software automates the core processes of collecting, converting and deploying the application stack from the source to the target cloud environment. WSM adds services, as needed, to complete the server to cloud migration. WSM cloud transformation professional services include consulting, discovery, assessment and migration planning, migration, configuration, development, DevOps, load testing, security and penetration testing to ensure a comprehensive and successful cloud adoption experience for every customer. 

In addition, WSM will deploy its exclusive Cloud Catalyst workload assessment tool, which will be available on the AWS Marketplace in Q4 2017 and on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace shortly thereafter. It performs rapid discovery of tens to thousands of servers to assist in migration planning. Cloud Catalyst helps determine the time and costs associated with moving workloads out of the data center to the cloud, or from cloud to cloud. It’s the first tool of its kind that can estimate the level of effort and cost to migrate. The two companies plan to fully integrate RiverMeadow’s Pre-Flight Check server verification tool with Cloud Catalyst to identify servers that are immediately ready for migration using RiverMeadow’s software.
