Give UShareSoft's Paul Laskin two and a half minutes of your time. You won't be disappointed. You'll find out how you can quickly and easily migrate workloads to cloud (or to any virtual or physical platform). You can also easily model your existing server as a template for extending and updating before migration, and conduct incremental scans for security and audit purposes.
The UShareSoft team is attending two great cloud events in March, Cloudscape (March 9 - 10) in Brussels, and Cloud Expo Europe (March 11 - 12) in London. Click here to get your free ticket for Cloud Expo Europe and read on to find out more.
There are two ways to add 3rd party software components or your own software to an appliance.
The first way is through the Project Catalog. This catalog provides a set of software components that you can quickly add to your appliance.
The second method is to use your private software library, known as “My Software”. This library can include any software that you upload into UForge.
To add custom software components you must upload the files, then add them to the existing appliance.
As you know, we recently launched our new UForge for Microsoft Azure platform, which lets you template software or migrate live servers to Azure. We're currently running a series of tutorials to help you get the most from UForge. In this post, I'll take you through how you can migrate live Linux servers to Azure.
If you missed my last post on registering your Azure credentials in UForge, you can take a look here. You should also check that your chosen Linux operating system is supported in Azure. You can find that information on Microsoft's web site.
Our new UForge for Microsoft Azure portal allows developers and enterprise customers to easily template their software or migrate live servers to Azure or hybrid environments in minutes. You can access all of our usual UForge functionality, including Factory, Migration and Marketplace features, directly from a single, easy-to-use portal that is optimized for Azure.
Over the next couple of months, we'll be running a series of tutorials to help you create software templates and migrate live servers to Azure. To get started, let's look at how to register your Azure credentials in UForge, a first step that you'll need to do whether you're migrating existing servers or creating new apps for Azure.
The prerequisites for this tutorial are:
