is to cloudify enterprise and unlock Hybrid cloud with the following features and benefits:
On-line Workload migration
Saasame Transport Packer consumes minimal CPU and memory resources of the source workload, nearly no performance impact and no production downtime before the switch to the recovered instance in the Cloud.
Seamless integration with destination Cloud
Saasame Transport is by design to be integrated with the selected destination clouds through API. No error-prone human effort is needed in the whole recovery process, especially critical in emergency DR circumstances.
One click, end-to-end automated
Physical and other hypervisors
Packer needs to be installed as a client agent to move physical workloads, while it also works perfectly for all non-VMware workloads on other hypervisors.
Almost everything covered
NOT traditional backup & recovery software
Saasame Transport is a new design from scratch with nothing in mind but moving workloads to the Cloud, so it’s different from traditional backup & recovery software in many ways, e.g. Saasame Transport Carrier keeps a buffer only instead of a full repository for backup. The buffer can be very small if inbound/outbound bandwidth ratio is right.
If you need Cloud, it’s us
Support Windows VSS for application recovery
Saasame Transport supports Windows VSS to achieve the best success rate of application recovery of Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, SQL and Sharepoint. Similar mechanism would be supported for Linux workloads as well.
Offline workload migration and import/export
Disaster Recovery (DR) and migration modes
In planned migration mode, the workload can be shut down right before moving, Saasame Transport would sync one last time automatically to make sure no data loss between the source and the recovered (RPO=0). In DR mode, i.e. the workload failed unexpectedly for whatever reason, Saasame Transport Loader would pick up the most recent snapshot in the Cloud for the recovery with minimal RTO.
Best of both DR and migration worlds
Agentless for VMware workloads
IT might have concerns against installing any agent in certain production workloads. Saasame Transport supports agentless for VMware workloads including Windows and Linux through VMware API.
Easy, Enterprise IT friendly
Every software componen is built as a service
Every blue box in the above architecture diagram is either a Windows or Linux service, which can be deployed altogether on one single machine or distributed across multiple ones, all depends on loading and other deployment factors.
All-in-one or fully scaled-out
Bi-directional moving between on-premise and the Cloud
Saasame Transport moves workloads from on-premise to the Cloud, also from Cloud back to the on-premise. In the case of Hybrid Cloud we always support bi-directional moving.
No lock-in whatsoever
Very fast physical/virtual to KVM conversion
In order to recover workloads in a different environment, many changes need to be made such as disk format, system drivers and etc. Saasame Transport Launcher does a fast conversion of those to hit critical RTO requirement
Heterogeneous support tough but key
Saasame Transport supports offline workload migration for physical Linux or even other workloads. In addition to end-to-end automated recovery, workloads can be exported from on-premise in VHD formats and imported to the Cloud for bandwidth and security consideration, where Cloud API automation becomes optional.
