Cloud Migration

Accelerated Cloud Migration

Ready to go all-in on the cloud, but all you’re missing is a solution that lets you test and migrate easily, with the option to rollback if needed? Velostrata gets enterprise workloads running in the cloud within minutes while data transfers quietly in the background. With virtually no downtime, wait time, or risk, Velostrata is your rocket to the cloud.

And moving to the cloud doesn’t have to be a one-way trip. With Velostrata’s cloud workload mobility, you gain a safety net to return workloads on-premises or move them to another cloud, giving you the flexibility to adapt your infrastructure when business requirements change.

We Understand Cloud Migration Challenges

We get it. If you’ve tried migrating workloads using traditional, agent-based methods, you know that they can be slow, complex, and risky.

Velostrata software enables accelerated cloud migration and workload mobility with speed, scale, simplicity, and safety. Unlike replication-based approaches, Velostrata’s agentless platform moves applications to the cloud in minutes. The software is easy to deploy and manage, and can significantly reduce the risks associated with migration.

Velostrata is Unique, Offering Customers:


Real-time streaming means stateful workloads are operational in cloud in minutes – 10-100x faster then replication!


WAN optimizations like dedupe and caching enable moving hundreds of servers (virtual or physical) per hour. Data is moved if/when needed and runbook automation eases migration for multi-tier apps.


Agentless technology that automatically adapts workloads for cloud target and integrates with existing management tools.


Test before you migrate without taking production workloads offline, seamless cut-overs, and instant rollback ensures you can avoid cloud lock-in.

Velostrata Delivers Tangible Business Benefits

Our accelerated cloud migration and workload mobility software takes advantage of pioneering, patent-pending technologies that make your cloud journey fast, efficient, and affordable. These crucial advantages let Velostrata customers reap significant benefits from their smooth, successful cloud migration journeys:

Cut Costs

Save millions of dollars by reducing manual labor and redundant on-prem systems faster:

  • Vastly reduce manual labor for each system migrated
  • Eliminate costly on-prem hardware and software licenses sooner
  • Pay only for what you need, instead of over-provisioned datacenters
  • Avoid costly hardware purchases (GPUs, etc.) that you can rent in the cloud

Reduce Risk

Built-in testing and rollback, plus a vastly simpler experience: 

  • Avoid software agents that require additional troubleshooting and security exceptions
  • Easily test for performance, cost directly in cloud without taking production applications offline
  • Keep data synchronized between cloud and on-prem as needed
  • Avoid complicated data reconciliation, app downtime issues at time of cut-over
  • Return any workload on-prem with just a few clicks

Save Time

Free up countless IT hours for other initiatives:

  • Planning, testing take place in parallel
  • Workloads begin running in cloud within minutes (not days or weeks, making it 100x faster than replication tools)
  • Migrate hundreds of servers (virtual or physical) in parallel
  • Avoid costly application downtime

Improve Agility

Architect the cloud that works best for your enterprise:

  • Start enterprise workloads in the cloud on-demand
  • Automate your migrations with runbook tools
  • Move back on-premises or to another cloud in a matter of minutes
  • Rent compute any time you need it

How it Works

cloud migration process


1. Decouples compute from storage.

2. Agentless streaming technology begins workloads in cloud within minutes.

3. Transfer data over WAN-optimized channel into cloud storage
