VMware and CloudVelox

 

In February 2018, VMware entered into an agreement to acquire the technology and team from CloudVelox, to accelerate its roadmap to deliver migration, mobility and delivery services in a hybrid, multi-cloud world.

 

CloudVelox is a pioneer in enabling workload mobility between the data center and public clouds. The software they’ve built accelerates workload mobility at scale resulting in “mass migrations” being completed successfully in weeks rather than nine to 12 months.

 

We expect to integrate the CloudVelox technology into VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) Services upon closing to enhance and accelerate our mission to transform IT to a hybrid, multi-cloud environment by:

  • Firstly, enabling a seamless dynamic pool of resources without boundaries – whether the resources are in the company data center, private cloud, public cloud or colocation facility, and,
  • Secondly, enabling seamless and secure workload mobility across the hybrid cloud environment.

 

VMware HCX Services deliver any cloud to any cloud secure, seamless interoperability and mobility, enabling large scale application migration and ongoing portability with zero application downtime or refactoring.
