Today, I am excited to announce that Velostrata has signed an agreement to join Google Cloud, subject to customary closing conditions!
When we started Velostrata back in 2014, we laid out a clear vision – to simplify and accelerate enterprise transition to cloud.
After seeing enterprise customers struggle to unchain their massive workloads from their data-centers and find a viable yet safe cloud strategy, we knew there must be a better way. To realize that vision, we assembled a core team of systems and WAN optimization experts that had worked together for many years, and developed a breakthrough technology – real-time agentless workload streaming.
Velostrata’s patented solution allows workloads to transparently migrate to the public cloud in minutes by decoupling compute from storage without degrading performance. Stateful workloads are adapted on the fly for cloud execution. Customers can either migrate their entire data-centers or operate in a hybrid cloud environment and migrate workloads on-demand.
To date, we have successfully mobilized many enterprise customers to cloud at scale, migrating thousands of servers with complex workloads and large databases – with minimal downtime and a simplified deployment. We are most grateful to our great customers and partners who trusted us and let us serve their most demanding production workloads, including top brands in healthcare, finance, energy and the public sector.
Over the years, Google Cloud has made significant investments in building a robust global cloud infrastructure that delivers industry-leading availability, reliability and security. Google Cloud continues to innovate with advanced compute and services platforms. We are proud to join forces and help pave the way for enterprise customers to transform their most demanding enterprise workloads on Google Cloud Platform.
Finally, I would like to thank our investors for their support and guidance, and most of all our amazing Velostrata team and their families for their extreme dedication, loyalty and perseverance. We are truly excited about the future ahead of us and looking forward to continuing the journey together as part of Google Cloud when the deal closes.
