Cristie Software today announced the release of CloneManager 2.1 with new support for cloning and moving Windows and Linux machines to the Azure cloud platform. Combined with tailoring facilities which monitor and measure the resource needs of source machines to correctly provision the target machine, this release allows scalable deployment of machines to Azure.
CloneManager has already seen significant uptake by global managed service providers as well as large organizations requiring machine move. The added support for Microsoft Azure is a significant step in Cristie’s mission to offer cross platform migrations to and from all the major cloud providers as well as physical, virtual and private cloud environments.
“This release is an important milestone being the first CloneManager version to offer support for true public cloud” said Ian Cameron, Cristie’s CEO. “Later this quarter we will be adding support for Amazon’s AWS and IBM’s SoftLayer with support for further cloud platforms by year end. Many organizations require the flexibility to easily move running machines between on-prem and off-prem computer resources and our platform-agnostic approach means we support the leading cloud platforms.”
The advantages of previous versions of CloneManager continue in this release including file-based replication rather than image, unique CloneSync feature to rapidly synchronise a previously cloned machine with its source machine and the ability to perform agentless migrations with no software being installed on the source machine.
