UK Customer Rescues Stalled Migration Project with Velostrata

The clock was ticking to migrate applications out of a co-located ("colo") datacenter and into the public cloud. After failed attempts with replication-based cloud migration tools, this customer switched to Velostrata to make up for lost time and successfully migrate before an upcoming colo datacenter contract renewal.

Think Twice About Using Agent-Based Migration Software

Despite the need for powerful cloud migration solutions, many solutions on the market today are re-purposed disaster recovery tools. These tools often involve two major architectural drawbacks- agents and replication- which result in slower, riskier migrations. This white paper explores how Velostrata avoids both agents and replication entirely to keep cloud migration projects fast, scalable, and successful.

Full Migration of VMs to AWS

Short demonstration of how Velostrata can migrate a workload to AWS. Cutover takes a few minutes, and the application is live in the cloud, running at normal performance. Data is streamed in the background, and then Velostrata can detach - leaving a fully native cloud instance
