RackWare SWIFT 1.2 manages the migration of containerized workloads to Microsoft Azure

RackWare launched SWIFT for Microsoft Azure, a solution for migrating and protecting stateful containerized workloads running on Microsoft Azure.

SWIFT is a converged disaster recovery (DR), backup and migration solution for Kubernetes and OpenShift that spans all platforms, clouds and versions, meaning it can move and protect any deployment Kubernetes or OpenShift from any source to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).

Moving and protecting stateful containerized workloads can be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. RackWare SWIFT v1.2 automates and manages the migration and protection of these workloads to reduce cost, time and risk through protection, mobility, single-pane management and support for a range of new features.

RackWare SWIFT provides flexibility in managing stateful containerized workloads, as part of any DR to AKS migration or transformation, any type of source storage for containers can be moved to any of the AKS storage types, including including Azure Disk Storage and Azure File Share.

This solution provides security; control points; hybrid model support; application-agnostic migration, backup, and disaster recovery, and the ability to migrate from any cloud to Azure.

“We are excited to offer this solution for migrating and protecting stateful containerized workloads with AKS,” said Bryan Gobbett, CEO of RackWare. “Our strong Azure integration continues to deliver unparalleled value to our joint Azure customers.”

“Integrating the RackWare SWIFT solution with Microsoft storage options helps increase customer value for production-scale stateful workloads on Azure,” said Aung Oo, General Manager, Microsoft Azure Storage .
