SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Velostrata, a leader in cloud migration and workload mobility, today announced the launch of its global partner program, designed to arm its ecosystem of ‘born in the cloud’ partners, system integrators and cloud experts with its award-winning cloud migration software, helping customers accelerate and simplify their journey to the cloud.
Velostrata’s solution changes how customers can approach migration, as well as the speed and scale at which they can migrate to the public cloud. In the hands of trained and certified solution providers, Velostrata enables customers to move their most complex workloads into the cloud in record time while significantly reducing labor costs.
“Migration of workloads to the public cloud has been hampered by two things - lack of next generation tools to truly automate the process, as well as the lack of expertise and know-how,” said Jan Poczobutt, vice president of sales and partner programs at Velostrata. “By investing in key partners who have expertise in the public cloud, we’re bringing game changing capabilities to the market. The strong initial adoption by market-leading partners is validation of this approach.”
Velostrata’s partner program is tier-based with no annual fees. Partners are eligible for a wide-range of sales, marketing, technical and training benefits to help achieve business goals. The program has seen extensive adoption, with founding members including: myCloudDoor, Inframon, Sol-Tec and others.
“Migration of complex workloads to Azure is an important step in both our customers’ and partners’ digital transformation. The Velostrata solution, combined with the expertise of the partner ecosystem, ensures that this transformation scales quickly worldwide with the least amount of risk,” said Jeana Jorgensen, general manager of Microsoft Corp.
“By partnering with Velostrata, we are able to deliver a differentiated, highly value-added solution to the market which will enable us to continue to grow our cloud practice,” said Jose Hernandez, CEO of myCloudDoor. “With Velostrata, we gain the ability to migrate even the most complex, multi-tier applications like SAP with speed and simplicity.”
“Moving to the cloud isn’t always a straightforward task. Complex multi-tier applications are challenging to move. Mitigating risk often requires extended testing, all of which needs to happen while minimizing downtime for production applications. Our partnership with Velostrata has transformed our migration offering making migration to the cloud a much simpler proposition,” said Paul Collins, head of cloud and infrastructure services, Sol-Tec Ltd.
“Organizations face a number of hurdles in moving to the cloud: migrating complex, production applications with minimal downtime and zero data loss has proven challenging in the past,” said Gordon McKenna, chief technology officer, Inframon (a Microsoft Cloud Productivity Partner of the Year for 2017). “The elegant, highly-automated migration solution that Velostrata is bringing to market, combined with our team’s in depth experience with Azure, enables us to better keep up with customer demand, while not breaking us on the resource side.”

Velostrata cloud migration and workload mobility software makes it possible to move enterprise workloads from on-premises or co-lo data centers to Azure with speed, scale and simplicity. Unlike replication-based approaches, Velostrata’s agentless platform moves applications and data to the cloud in minutes. The software is easy to deploy and manage, and can significantly reduce the risks associated with migration. Unique capabilities let organizations "test before they migrate" in minutes without taking production applications offline, and provide ongoing flexibility to easily move workloads back on-premises or to another cloud region. Velostrata also works at scale, allowing migration of 100 VMs per hour at modest bandwidth. Velostrata is backed by Intel Capital, Norwest Venture Partners and 83 North and has offices in San Mateo, California, with research and development in Israel.
