LITTLE ROCK, Ark., -- Windstream Hosted Solutions, part of Windstream and a provider of enterprise-class cloud and managed hosted solutions, has partnered with Racemi, a Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, to enable business to quickly and automatically migrate their existing physical and virtual servers to Windstream's cloud.

By leveraging Racemi's Cloud Path SaaS platform, Windstream will accelerate server migration, allowing enterprise customers to continue daily business operations during the migration without experiencing downtime. With this automated process, the data transfer occurs in the background while the production server stays up and running. Additionally, Cloud Path's self-service portal has been fully integrated into Windstream's cloud portal, providing a seamless transition into the Windstream cloud.

For customers seeking to migrate data, applications and systems to a cloud environment, the transition process can be a cumbersome. Currently, many companies move data using either an external storage device, such as a hard drive, or rebuild servers from the ground up. Windstream's new solution is a sophisticated, market-sensitive alternative to these options.

Windstream Hosted Solutions offers a robust cloud computing solution that dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of IT resources and applications for enterprise businesses, allowing them to rapidly implement cloud services without capital investments so they can reshape their environment on demand. The Windstream Hosted Solutions suite includes public, private, and hybrid cloud products, available to businesses nationwide. These managed and dedicated hosting solutions, combined with Windstream's full line-up of advanced network communications and technology products -- including voice and data services such as VoIP, SIP trunking, MPLS, and dedicated high-speed internet -- enable Windstream to offer its customers a complete set of integrated services.

Windstream Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: WIN)

Racemi
Sounds like a good potential partner for service providers looking to improve enterprise cloud traction. CenturyLink/Savvis also has partnered with Racemi, though I don't think many (or possibly any?) other traditional telcos have to this point.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
