A new press release reports, “Velostrata, a leader in accelerated enterprise cloud migration and mobility, announced its partnership with Google Cloud today in response to increasing enterprise demand in mass migrating on-premises workloads into Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The GCP-Velostrata-integrated solution takes a holistic approach to TCO reduction by not only being offered free of charge, but also dramatically accelerating the speed of cloud migrations, often by more than five times than that of conventional approaches. It does this while simultaneously maximizing application up-time. This speed-to-cloud translates into reduced customer spend on both CAPEX and OPEX associated with dual infrastructure costs when customers are forced to run parallel workloads on-premises and in the cloud until full data replication and cut-over are complete and application performance in the cloud verified.”
The release goes on, “Velostrata achieves this speed and performance at scale by relying on an agentless real-time streaming technology that is highly differentiated from conventional replication-based approaches. The agentless aspect of the architecture eliminates up to 5 hours of IT labor per server during migrations and obviates the need to open up firewall ports, while the streaming technology decouples compute from storage and automatically transforms workloads to run in their GCP instance. These two facets of the architecture combined with advanced WAN optimization enables workloads to run in the Google Cloud within minutes. Meanwhile, remaining data transfers transparently in the background without compromising performance or data consistency. Finally, customers are de-risked with the option of knowing they can perform an instant rollback of workloads to on-premises, further reassuring them of a robust, enterprise-grade experience.”
