Velostrata helps corporations migrate from on-premises datacenters to the cloud, a standard requirement as we speak as corporations attempt to shift extra workloads to the cloud. It’s not at all times a easy matter although to switch these legacy functions, and that’s the place Velostrata might assist Google Cloud clients.
As I wrote in 2014 about their debut, the startup found out a technique to decouple storage and compute and that had vast utilization and attraction. “The corporate has a classy hybrid cloud answer that decouples storage from compute sources, leaving the storage in place on-premises whereas working a digital machine within the cloud,” I wrote on the time.
However greater than that, in a hybrid world the place buyer functions and knowledge can dwell within the public cloud or on prem (or a mixture), Velostrata offers them management to maneuver and adapt the workloads as wanted and put together it for supply on cloud digital machines.
“This implies [customers] can simply and rapidly migrate digital machine-based workloads like giant databases, enterprise functions, DevOps, and huge batch processing to and from the cloud,” Eyal Manor VP of engineering at Google Cloud wrote in the blog post saying the acquisition.
This in fact takes Velostrata from being a common goal cloud migration software to 1 tuned particularly for Google Cloud sooner or later, however one that offers Google a priceless software in its battle to achieve cloud marketshare.
Previously, Google Cloud head Diane Greene has talked concerning the enterprise alternatives they’ve seen in merely “lifting and shifting” knowledge masses to the cloud. This acquisition offers them a key service to assist clients who need to do this with the Google Cloud.
Velostrata was based in 2014. It has raised over $31 million from buyers together with Intel Capital and Norwest Enterprise companions.
