SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Volterra, an innovator in distributed cloud services, today announced it has been named a Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing in the September 2020 Cool Vendors in Cloud Computing report1 by Gartner. The report states “innovation in cloud computing continues to accelerate at a rapid pace in cloud infrastructure and platform services. CIOs should assess these Cool Vendors, who are disrupting the cloud market with their innovative approach in enabling operationalization of cloud-native platforms.”
Enterprises and service providers are rapidly modernizing their application development through microservices and containers, as well as their deployment by distributing them across clusters and clouds. As cited in the report, “Gartner believes that in the future, cloud services will be more distributed beyond centralized cloud regions to different physical locations such as the data center and the edge. CIOs will increasingly leverage cloud-native platform services such as containers and serverless functions to modernize and build new applications.”
But this creates a key challenge for DevOps and NetOps teams to evolve their application networking and security, as well as platform services, to be cloud-native and support microservices, distributed workloads and multi-cloud environments.
Volterra’s distributed cloud services platform is based on two integrated SaaS-based services -- VoltMesh for app networking and security, and VoltStack for app platform services. They are augmented by the company’s global app delivery network (ADN), which offloads and secures critical workloads closer to end users for maximum performance and availability.
"We are thrilled to be recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing," said Ankur Singla, Volterra co-founder and CEO. “We have a unique approach to integrating key application networking, security and delivery services, and then offering them as a simplified SaaS platform, can address core challenges for both application and I&O teams.”
The Volterra distributed cloud services platform is available today as a free service for base users with two multi-cloud clusters and a paid enterprise subscription for larger footprint and/or globally-distributed deployments.
