Velostrata and HeleCloud Announce Strategic Partnership

London, 14th Mar 2017:

HeleCloud, a fast-growing AWS technology consultancy announced this week that it has signed a partnership with Velostrata – a leading Cloud software provider that allows organisations to migrate existing applications into Public Cloud in a resilient, speedy, structured, and secure fashion. HeleCloud will be the first Velostrata AWS-centric Gold Partner in the UK.

HeleCloud provides strategic technology consultancy, engineering and Cloud-based managed services and training that allow organisations to reduce operational costs and accelerate innovation to focus on their core business, and have more confidence around data security and compliance. HeleCloud assists companies throughout their journey into the Cloud environment from vision through implementation to operations. HeleCloud consultants work with businesses to identify digital needs, select and implement products and services, and train staff to use them.

Velostrata software enables public cloud migration and workload mobility with speed, scale and simplicity. Unlike replication-based approaches, Velostrata’s agentless platform moves applications to the cloud in minutes. The software is easy to deploy and manage, and can significantly reduce the risks associated with migration. Unique capabilities let organizations “test before they migrate” in minutes without taking production applications offline, and provide ongoing flexibility to move workloads back on-premises or to another cloud if desired.

Dobromir Todorov, Chief Cloud Officer, HeleCloud said, “In our engagements with large enterprise organisations on their journey to the Cloud, we often see the need to migrate existing applications and systems to benefit from the security, compliance, performance, and cost-efficiency aspects of Cloud. Moving existing workloads, especially such that are part of mission-critical systems is a non-trivial task, which may sometimes result in planned and unplanned downtime. By using Velostrata’s cloud workload mobility platform, our customers will be able to securely and reliably move mission-critical systems onto the AWS platform in a predictable fashion and by minimising system downtime. This partnership will benefit our customers; we welcome the opportunity to do more for them, and look forward to helping them make the most of Cloud.”

“Many enterprises struggle to integrate public cloud infrastructure into their plans for data centre modernization. HeleCloud has built deep experience helping enterprises leverage AWS, and we are pleased to welcome them as a partner,” said Alon Goldin, Vice President of Business Development for EMEA at Velostrata. “Together with HeleCloud, we can help enterprises overcome the barriers and reap the advantages of AWS quickly and easily.”
