Sureline Systems, a leader in enterprise-class virtual, cloud, physical, and container migration and disaster recovery solutions for application mobility, today announced SUREedge Migrator 4.7.1 for migration from traditional infrastructure to OpenStack environments in on-premises or Cloud targets. Customers are able to migrate existing physical servers or virtual machines from any hypervisor or cloud to OpenStack with automated transformation resulting in fast, secure, and efficient onboarding.
The OpenStack cloud operating system is fast becoming an important alternative for large enterprises wishing to avoid vendor lock-in with multi-hypervisor support while being able to tailor the OpenStack environment to meet their specific needs. SUREedge Migrator allows organisations to migrate complete workloads to new infrastructure inside a data centre, from data centre to data centre, to public clouds, between clouds, or from a cloud back to on-premises. Version 4.7.1 delivers the already feature-rich SUREedge Migrator capabilities including; ease of deployment and management through a powerful UI, automated transformation of the workload to the target environment, efficiency and security with deduplication, compression and encryption for any data going across a WAN, and no impact on the production server during the migration process.
SUREedge Migrator version 4.7.1 is available now with support for OpenStack. The OpenStack migration works with any hypervisor or cloud that supports OpenStack. The SUREedge-Migrator OpenStack support works with any hypervisor or cloud that supports OpenStack. SUREedge Migrator is qualified with the OpenStack Liberty version.

Integration and drivers are included to support a variety of OpenStack components including:
KeyStone for authenticating the OpenStack user
