as a Service
Coriolis® is the simplest way to migrate all your Windows and Linux virtual machines, templates, storage and networking configurations across any cloud infrastructure.
Migrating existing Windows and Linux workloads between clouds is a necessity for a large number of use cases, especially for a user moving from traditional virtualization technologies like VMware vSphere or Microsoft System Center VMM to Azure / Azure Stack, OpenStack, Amazon AWS or Google Cloud.
Coriolis™ addresses exactly those requirements, in particular migrating Linux (Ubuntu, Red Hat / CentOS, Oracle Linux, SUSE, Debian, Fedora) and Windows virtual machines, templates, storage and networking configurations.
Coriolis truly excels in automating cloud migration in a scalable and reliable way, avoiding the need for countless manual steps, notoriously error prone and barely documented.
Scalability and fault tolerance
Coriolis is based on a microservices architecture with scalability and fault tolerance as a primary goal in mind. Migrating hundreds of virtual machines with multiple tenants in parallel is no problem.
Identity management is based on Keystone, to allow easy integration with OpenStack, Active Directory and Azure, offering easy project-based multi-tenancy.
Security plays an important role. We are leveraging OpenStack’s Barbican project, Azure Key Vault or other market standard solutions for storing the credentials required to connect to a cloud in a secure way. We’re also leveraging lots of OpenStack Oslo components for most of the services, from the WSGI based APIs down to AMQP messaging.
Additionally, Coriolis can allow hybrid scenarios where the target cloud is used for handling workload expansions on a public cloud while still maintaining an on-premise infrastructure.
Interfacing the user
Coriolis provides a simple and powerful REST API, that can be consumed with a web, command line or custom interface. A GUI version in coming soon!
We got busy and recorded a set of videos showing how to use Coriolis to migrate Windows Server, Ubuntu, RHEL, SUSE, CentOS and Debian virtual machines from VMware vSphere to OpenStack and Azure.
