CloudVelocity Seeks To Champion Enterprise Hybrid Cloud
Startup maps out applications, creates clones and moves them to cloud data center.
CloudVelocity has launched the beta version of its system that discovers an application, creates a "blueprint" of it from which a duplicate can be created, and then sends the clone to another location to run in a similar manner. To do so, the CloudVelocity system must be able to identify the application's dependencies, such as networks, storage and database systems used, then generate equivalents from the blueprint at the new location.
One of the most likely places a clone is to be run, conceded CEO Rajeev Chawla, is Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud. Thus, CloudVelocity is looking to become the agent that enables hybrid cloud computing. Run your system in the enterprise, and have a clone standing by -- ready to be fired up when traffic demands it -- in the cloud. CloudVelocity will handle some of the details of the migration under the covers. Read full story on InformationWeek
