SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Velostrata, a leader in cloud migration and workload mobility, today announced it has joined the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance (ECA). By joining the program, Velostrata deepens its relationship with Microsoft and their partner and customer ecosystems. Velostrata cloud migration and workload mobility software enables users to migrate on-premises workloads into Azure within a matter of minutes, and has proved valuable for helping customers keep Azure migration projects on time and on budget.
“We are thrilled to join Microsoft’s Enterprise Cloud Alliance, as it enables us to further help Microsoft partners and enterprise customers with their large-scale cloud migration journeys,” said Issy Ben-Shaul, CEO and co-founder of Velostrata. “Adoption of Microsoft Azure is increasing rapidly as enterprises realize the business benefits of better agility and a reduced datacenter footprint. Velostrata is paving the way for seamless adoption and mass migration.”
Velostrata and Microsoft Azure
Velostrata cloud migration and workload mobility software accelerates and simplifies cloud migration. Velostrata’s agentless platform can reduce the cost of migration projects by saving up to 7 hours per server in labor compared to agent-based approaches. When it comes to migration of thousands of servers, this translates to significant cost savings in manual labor. Unique workload streaming and auto-adaptation makes it possible to have stateful workloads up and running in the cloud in minutes, with no risk of data loss or complex cutover and synchronization procedures. Velostrata also works at scale, allowing migration of 100s of servers per day. System management is easy via a vCenter plugin or REST API.
“The Enterprise Cloud Alliance Partner Program welcomes Microsoft partners like Velostrata that are developing and delivering best in class enterprise and cloud solutions in strategic engagements with Microsoft to accelerate business and innovation,” said Chris Lwanga, Principal, Cloud Ecosystem Engagement at Microsoft Corp. “Partners who are developing solutions that can work with and leverage innovations in the Microsoft Intelligent Cloud will benefit from the promotion and access that are benefits of enrollment in the Enterprise Cloud Alliance to maximize their business opportunities.”
The ability to move workloads quickly and easily to Azure gives organizations many business advantages, including:
- Cost Savings: Save labor hours, avoid colocation renewals and associated management costs, reduce data center footprint, take advantage of pay-as-you-go pricing for non-24x7 applications, and avoid double paying for infrastructure by dramatically shortening migration windows.
- Agility: When ready to migrate, Velostrata moves the actual server instances to Azure in minutes. Data is transferred in the background while the application runs without affecting performance, and any changes to data are captured in the cloud, so there is no complicated syncing or cutover.
- Risk Reduction: Velostrata’s Test Clone feature makes it possible to move an exact clone of any workload to Azure in minutes, without taking production applications offline. During migration, IT managers can roll back individual workloads on-premises in minutes.
- Mass Migration Support: Deduplication and WAN optimizations make it possible to move hundreds of virtual machines simultaneously to the cloud over modest bandwidth links.
Velostrata cloud migration and workload mobility software makes it possible to move enterprise workloads from on-premises or co-lo data centers to the cloud 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 up to 100 servers per day at modest bandwidth. Velostrata is backed by Intel Capital, Norwest Venture Partners and 83 North and is headquartered in San Mateo, California, with research and development in Israel.
