Cloud Velocity: Automate Critical Infrastructure Processes

Cloud integration into a hybrid cloud has always been a hotly debated topic between the IT professional proposing the move and the executive, who has his hide on the line, tasked to evaluate and approve it. There are definitely a lot of pitfalls and drawbacks if the plan is not very well thought of. But even then, some services and functions that would have made those cloud integration plans work may not have been available at the time of planning.

According to Greg Ness, VP Marketing, Cloud Velocity, the biggest barrier to a true hybrid cloud model just might be the monumental effort required to make it happen because of a myriad of manual processes that are required to seamlessly run existing multi-tier applications and services across multiple data centers, collocation facilities and various public cloud service providers. This is certainly the fear of each executive, to attempt a transfer only to have it miserably fail resulting in the applications and services not running optimally or at all or at least take too much time resulting in the project being more costly than originally anticipated; the biggest barrier for enterprises to adopt the public cloud.

Yet the idea of boundless data centers operating within hybrid clouds gets increasingly appealing as more cloud service providers offer enterprises more attractive offerings.  Imagine an enterprise no longer bound to the costs, risks and limitations of any set of locations, able to deploy apps and services as needed.  Perhaps the only barrier to this new cloud era for the enterprise is the ultimate automation of all of the cloud integration processes.

Some approaches to migrating and running apps into and in between public clouds involve either doing the migration one server at a time, migration without services, or something that someone pulled out of a hat somewhere. Though they might fulfill some particular task and solve some problems, they by far do not have enough scope and breadth, that feeling of critical mass, to make them nothing more than some good ideas. During the Gartner Data Center Conference held during the first last December3-6, 2012 in Las Vegas, Gartner analysts acknowledged that hybrid clouds are the future, but the lack of tools is the biggest barrier to the adaption of hybrid clouds.

Enter Cloud Velocity. This is the first real platform for multi-tier applications and services to be able to run seamlessly within a hybrid cloud environment. Think boundless apps that can operate seamlessly across multiple environments without virtualization lock-in and physical limitations.  It allows for the integration of public cloud resources to existing data center and collocation resources without the hassle of manual transfers and configuration and the need to be dependent upon a virtualization vendor’s cloud platform. Applications and services can run in the public cloud as extensions of the data centers, no need to retire hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of hardware.

Cloud Velocity was designed to automate critical infrastructure processes found in hybrid cloud environments which start with the discovering of hosts to replication and cloning, cloud provisioning, synchronization and to launching of the systems and beyond. All these can be controlled through a series of user-friendly drag and drop menus. Cloud Velocity allows you to extend all your enterprise data center solutions and applications into the cloud by allowing your applications on the public cloud to access any resource or service that may be residing back in the enterprise data centers.

All of these results in significant reduction in costs and risks for the deployment and maintenance of public cloud application and services clusters due to the great time reduction brought by bringing down manual cloud configuration, migration and deployment to a minimum and through automation of several other infrastructure tasks.

Cloud Velocity makes it easy, fast and safe to migrate between public clouds and your existing data centers as it does not require your applications to be modified or virtualized before being able to run safely in the cloud.

If all of these sound good to you, it actually is. The Company is offering free trial hybrid cloud software that allows you to witness the power of the Cloud Velocity Cloud Integration and Cloning processes. With your application you get our free limited time service to get you up and running on your hybrid cloud setup without the need to modify your applications, and use the whole thing through an easy to use drag and drop interface, and most of all you do not have to pay for anything, even use AWS for free during the duration of your free trial. It’s on us; this is our way of showing our confidence in our system.
