Boomerang Demo: One Easy Step at a Time

Boomerang easily replicates VMware VMs in Amazon Web Services with a few simple steps. You can organize VMs in Protection Groups, and assign different block-level incremental backup parameters by group in AWS S3 for low cost storage. Using Boomerang's Pilot Light approach, you can choose when to automatically remodel your VMs as native Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) in AWS EC2 with the click of a mouse. And because Boomerang keeps track of the VMs' configuration information, you can convert AMIs back as ready-to-run VMs and return them to any data center.
