Israel-based Velostrata being acquired by Google to accelerate enterprise transition to cloud

Velostrata and Google signed an agreement this week where Google is acquiring the Israel-based Velostrata. Velostrata provides simple ways to migrate to the cloud. Velostrata’s team will join Google’s Tel Aviv office.

Issy Ben-Shaul, CEO and Co-Founder of Velostrata, wrote that “after seeing enterprise customers struggle to unchain their massive workloads from their data-centers and find a viable yet safe cloud strategy, we knew there must be a better way. To realize that vision, we assembled a core team of systems and WAN optimization experts that had worked together for many years, and developed a breakthrough technology – real-time agentless workload streaming.”

Google is buying the “Velostrata’s patented solution” that “allows workloads to transparently migrate to the public cloud in minutes by decoupling compute from storage without degrading performance. Stateful workloads are adapted on the fly for cloud execution. “

The agreement is subject to closing conditions.
