CloudVelocity Automates Migration of Apps to Amazon Web Services (AWS); Opens
Up New Opportunities in the Cloud for Disaster Recovery
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 -- Today
CloudVelocity(TM) released its One Hybrid Cloud(TM) software that
enables enterprises to accelerate cloud adoption. The new release
makes AWS a secure and seamless extension of enterprise data centers
and gives enterprises the ability to run their existing and new Linux
and Windows multi-tier and multi-system apps without modification in
the AWS cloud. More than 100 enterprise trials have been conducted
since the company emerged from stealth in December 2012, including
Fortune 100 cloud initiatives. CloudVelocity plans to announce
integration with other cloud providers in 2013.
Today CloudVelocity also announced $13 million in funding
One Hybrid Cloud software is the first to automate dozens of complex
manual cloud migration processes that are a substantial barrier to
cloud adoption for the vast majority of enterprise apps. This
unprecedented breadth of automation reduces cloud migration risks and
expenses by more than 90% for multi-tier apps; critical
authentication and security-related services are also extended into
the cloud from the data center. The cloud then becomes an ideal
disaster recovery and DevTest option for enterprise apps.

Unlike image or template-based tools, One Hybrid Cloud software
automates the entire process from discovering the constituent hosts,
blueprinting of system components and configuration, provisioning of
cloud resources, continuous replication and synchronization of the
entire app stack (including operating system, kernel, app software
stack, and app data), service initiation in the cloud site to
extending infrastructure services (like LDAP and Active Directory),
all with a single click.
With One Hybrid Cloud software, the cloud pre-production and
production environments are virtually identical, which minimizes
errors and reduces development cycles as software is updated and
easily pushed live. The cloud becomes an ideal operating model for
disaster recovery. Customers can leverage the cloud as needed,
instead of having to build and support duplicate apps and
infrastructure for the possibility of occasional use.
"Until today, cloud migration and cloud-enabled disaster recovery
have not been viable for the vast majority of enterprise data center
apps," said Rajeev Chawla, chief executive officer of CloudVelocity.
"With today's launch of One Hybrid Cloud, we are significantly
reducing the amount of manual processes, risks and expenses otherwise
required to deploy robust enterprise data center apps into the
Customer wins ahead of general availability include a leading
financial services company, who has deployed CloudVelocity for
cloud-assisted "pay as you go" disaster recovery, and database
infrastructure startup ScaleArc, who has deployed CloudVelocity for
agile software development, support and training.
"CloudVelocity One Hybrid Cloud software enabled unprecedented
agility for our DevTest, support and demo training environments,"
said John Vastano, VP of Customer Support at ScaleArc. "We were able
to run the entire app stack across multiple machines as is between
our engineering and support labs and cloud seamlessly, as a single
environment. We leveraged AWS as needed, when needed and without
compromise. Without CloudVelocity One Hybrid Cloud, that level of
agility would simply not have been possible."
CloudVelocity is the first company to deliver
automated cloud migration and disaster recovery software specifically
developed for the unique operating demands of existing, multi-tier
apps. Led by a deeply experienced team of system software and
networking executives, CloudVelocity software gives data center teams
the ability to easily scale, protect and secure their distributed
apps and services into and between clouds, eliminating many of the
major barriers to the enterprise adoption of cloud. For more
