CloudVelocity Eases Moving Workloads To Amazon
CloudVelocity learns your systems and Amazon's processes, then streamlines migration of workloads into EC2.
CloudVelocity came out of stealth mode Tuesday to introduce One Hybrid Cloud, a system that packages up a workload in a way that matches the production system, then migrates it to Amazon's EC2.
That might sound like what a lot of other parties are already doing, but CloudVelocity closely maps the existing application and its related servers -- including the database server -- and then creates duplicates in the cloud using the same IP addresses. It sets up Elastic Block Storage and networking as close to the original resources as possible and even out foxes Amazon's EC2 into provisioning the application with the operating system that it's sent, rather than the one Amazon wants to install by default.
"When we put it in the cloud, we try to make sure it will have the same performance" as the on-premises system, CloudVelocity CTO Anand Tyengar said in an interview.
The cloud-preparation system, available now, is also trying to bring its built-in knowledge of Amazon security groups to give the workload a similar measure of security and controlled user access. To help on that score, it either links the cloud job to the on-premises LDAP or Active Directory, or duplicates the directory on a linked cloud server. The link would send and receive data through the Secure File Transfer Protocol's encryption process.... Read full story on InformationWeek
