“Velostrata is honored to be one of the 15 companies chosen by Microsoft to join the 2017 Startup roadshow,” said Issy Ben-Shaul, CEO and co-founder of Velostrata. “Velostrata cloud workload mobility software helps enterprises move workloads to Microsoft Azure cloud with unprecedented speed, simplicity and scale. As a Microsoft partner, our vision of helping companies take advantage of Azure is highly complementary. We look forward to further collaboration with the Microsoft team and expanding our visibility in the Azure community.”
Velostrata agentless workload mobility platform makes it possible to migrate applications and their data to Azure quickly and easily. Velostrata uniquely decouples compute from storage, and streams only the necessary elements for an application to execute, enabling applications to run natively in the cloud in minutes, regardless of image size. Key differentiators include:
Velostrata is unique in several important ways:
- Speed: Velostrata’s unique real-time streaming means stateful workloads can be up and running in the cloud 100x faster than replication-based methods
- Simplicity: Velostrata is agentless, and requires no changes to applications, images or existing management practices.
- Safety: Organizations can test before they migrate, without taking production applications offline. They can also rollback to on-premises quickly, providing a safety net that reduces migration risk.
- Scale: WAN optimizations including deduplication, streaming, and caching make it possible to move 100 VMs in parallel over modest bandwidth.
“The Microsoft Startup Roadshow takes the best and the brightest of emerging technology companies and provides a broad range of support to help fuel their rapid growth,” said Ravi Narayan, global director, Microsoft Accelerators at Microsoft Corp. “Velostrata’s unique product, combined with an experienced management team, make the company a perfect candidate to take advantage of all the Microsoft Startup Roadshow offers.”
Velostrata software enables public cloud migration and workload mobility with speed, scale and simplicity. Unlike replication-based approaches, Velostrata’s agentless platform moves applications 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 move workloads back on-premises or to another cloud if desired. 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.
