Cristie Software has released its Cristie Connect API, which will allow service providers and enterprise integrators to easily embed machine cloning and migration in to their own online service offerings.
The Connect API provides full control of Cristie CloneManager to clone and move running machines across different physical, virtual and cloud environments. Users can optimize resource allocation, manage server infrastructure and utilize DR capabilities. There is also an option for agentless clones for both Windows and Linux sources. It allows users to fully incorporate all CloneManager features within their own service deployment frameworks without the overhead of developing bespoke solutions.
Service Providers can easily expand their portfolio offering using the brand and approach that they are comfortable with, generating additional revenue opportunities through services wrapped around the cloning and migration.
