Google announces its agreement with Israel-based Velostrata, to accelerate enterprise cloud migration technology. It enters into an agreement in response to increasing enterprise demand in mass migrating on-premises workloads into Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This helps them take advantage of what the cloud has to offer – speed, scalability, and access to technologies like advanced data analytics and machine learning.
Velostrata is to provide Google customers with two important benefits that are they’ll be able to adapt their workloads on-the-fly for cloud execution, and they can decouple their compute from storage without performance degradation. This means they can easily and quickly migrate virtual machine-based workloads like large databases, enterprise applications, to and from the cloud.
Velostrata achieves this speed and performance at scale by relying on an agentless real-time streaming technology that is highly differentiated from conventional replication-based approaches. The agentless aspect of the architecture eliminates up to 5 hours of IT labor and obviates the need to open up firewall ports. These aspects of the architecture enable workloads to run in the Google Cloud within minutes.
Google is much excited about its much-talented team that will be joining them in their Tel Aviv office, and the technical strength they bring to Google Cloud.
