SAN MATEO, Calif. – Jun 2, 2016 – Velostrata, the cloud workload mobility company, announced today that it has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in the report “Cool Vendors in Cloud Computing 2016,” by Gregor Petri, Milind Govekar, David Mitchell Smith, Mike Dorosh, Ed Anderson and Tiny Haynes. The report identifies Velostrata as one of three companies that are innovative, impactful and intriguing.

Velostrata software provides a non-disruptive, low-risk platform that brings unprecedented simplicity to cloud migration. The company’s patent pending technology uniquely decouples compute from storage, and makes it possible to move compute to the cloud in minutes – while controlling and automating where storage resides – on premises, in the cloud, or a combination of both. With Velostrata, there is no need to re-write applications, modify images, or manage lengthy cutover processes.

“Public cloud offers unprecedented business agility and cost efficiency, but organizations continue to struggle with the risk, duration, downtime, and complexity associated with migrating enterprise applications,” says Issy Ben-Shaul, CEO and co-founder of Velostrata. “We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a 2016 Cool Vendor and believe this places us at the forefront of solving these challenges.”

Companies deploy Velostrata to automate, accelerate, and de-risk their journey to public cloud– especially for data-rich enterprise applications. With Velostrata, applications are migrated to AWS or Azure in minutes, regardless of the size of the compute image or associated data disks, and without modifying applications or images. Once these applications are running in the cloud, customers have several options for data storage:

Compute Migration: While taking advantage of the cloud for compute instantly and in any geography, IT managers can keep storage on premises to retain control, backup, HA, security and other data-management practices, without degrading application performance.

Full Migration: While the application continues to execute, Velostrata can migrate storage to the cloud in the background, avoiding the prolonged and complicated traditional migration process of large data-movement, replica synchronization and lengthy downtime as a pre-condition to cloud execution.

Safety-Net: Throughout the migration process and even when fully migrated, customers have the option to roll workloads back on-premises until they decide to detach and decommission on-premises infrastructure.
