With Swift to migrate and protect containers in cloud

RackWare, Inc. is expanding its offering to allow businesses to migrate to and protect containers in the cloud.


The company’s Kubernetes offering, Swift, augments the firm’s server migration and DR solutions, enabling the movement of containers from on-premise to the cloud, and from cloud-to-cloud. The introduction of Swift rounds out a cloud mobility and protection solution for both production and development environments.

We are pleased to introduce this important Kubernetes capability to our existing robust feature set,” says Todd Matters, CTO. “Kubernetes is an increasingly important element of datacenter IT and extending support for both migration and DR in our portfolio is exciting. We are entertaining a limited number of Beta deployments in the near term and will go full GA in Q4.

Swift addresses multiple challenges in expanding Kubernetes market:

  • On-premise deployments transitioning to the cloud

  • Minimization of downtime during migration/cutover

  • Storage incompatibilities contributing to vendor lock-in

  • Transformation to PaaS

  • Container version/format incompatibilities inhibiting cross-platform mobility

With Swift, clients have the freedom to choose any target cloud or platform technology regardless of existing platform constraints. As a result, businesses realize the advantages that cloud offers including simpler deployment, reduced maintenance and scalability.

The solution supports all the major Kubernetes offerings from the cloud service providers, including Oracle (OKE), Azure (AKS), Google (GKE), AWS (EKS), and IBM/Openshift.
