Vow to Visit Velostrata at VMworld

By: Tom NiklAugust 16, 2016

Many of us at Velostrata have been a part of the VMware ecosystem for years – whether it was through partnerships, technology integrations, or in some cases, acquisitions.

This year, we’re heading to Vegas on the heels of some exciting milestones for Velostrata. We recently announced $17.5M in Series B investment led by Intel Capital, along with the introduction of Velostrata 2.0.

The customers we’re working with are modernizing their data centers and aggressively looking to public cloud as a way to improve their agility, control data center footprint, and expand their capacity on demand. What many of these companies really want is a hybrid cloud model. The reality is that today hybrid means some workloads stay on-premises while some move to the public cloud long term. The vision of truly mobile workloads that can be moved quickly to and from the cloud as needs or requirements change has proved elusive.

Why? Because private and public clouds typically use different technology, and figuring out if an application is going to work in the cloud is challenging – especially for multi-tier applications with many dependencies and/or lots of associated data.

This is where Velostrata can have a big impact.

If you’re going to VMworld, stop by the Velostrata booth (763) and get a demo of how we can get your workloads to the cloud (and back) in a matter of minutes for a number of use cases, including:

  • Accelerating Dev/Test by leveraging the cloud to parallelize test efforts. Check out our recent ‘How to’ blog on this topic.
  • Reduce risk with ‘Test before you migrate’ – Velostrata can quickly clone and automatically adapt a workload for your cloud target, while leaving storage on premises so you can validate performance and cost in real time.
  • Migrate workloads to public cloud in minutes, vs days or weeks, with Velostrata’s streaming-based migration. Move your actual instance instead of a replica, and avoid complicated synchronization and cutover.

And if that’s not reason enough to stop by the booth, we’ll be giving away a DJI Phantom 3 Drone every day!

If you’d like to schedule a personalized briefing or demo at the show – or just join us for a drink, contact us.

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!
