Rackware Offers SWIFTTM For Microsoft Azure, A Fully Integrated Solution For Securing Stateful Containerized Workloads

By CIOReview | Monday, August 22, 2022

RackWare’s integrated data protection solution will completely secure containerized workload on the Microsoft Azure platform.

FREMONT, CA: "We are very excited to offer this solution to migrate and protect stateful containerized workloads with AKS," said Bryan Gobbett, CEO, RackWare. "Our strong Azure integration continues to deliver unmatched value to our joint Azure customers."

SWIFTTM for Microsoft Azure, a fully integrated solution for securing stateful containerized workloads on the Microsoft Azure platform, is a brand new offering from RackWare, one of the leading providers of Hybrid Cloud Mobility solutions. It can migrate any Kubernetes or OpenShift deployment from any source to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) using a converged disaster recovery (DR), backup, and migration solution.

Containerized stateful workloads are challenging, expensive, and time-consuming to move. Its advanced features include the ability to fully automate and manage the movement and security of these workloads through a single pane of glass management approach and the ability to provide flexible protection, simplified mobility, and support for a range of new capabilities with RackWare SWIFT v1.2.

"The RackWare SWIFT solution integration with Microsoft storage options helps expand customer value for production scale stateful workloads on Azure," said Aung Oo, General Manager, Microsoft Azure Storage.

Any source storage type for containers that can be transitioned to Azure Disk Storage or Azure File Share as a part of any migration or disaster recovery transformation to AKS, including RackWare SWIFT, offers unparalleled flexibility in handling stateful containerized workloads. The advantages of this solution include enhanced security, simple, effective checkpoints, support for hybrid models, application-neutral migration, backup and disaster recovery, and the ability to migrate from any cloud to Azure easily.

As new cloud services or ways of reducing costs become available throughout the cloud universe, customers can take advantage of seamless mobility to make the most of cutting-edge services.
