Into the fast-crowding arena of cloud automation providers comes Cloud Velocity, which emerged from stealth mode in early December. Cloud Velocity's offering is based on a patent-pending software platform called One Hybrid Cloud that allows enterprise users to discover, blueprint, clone and migrate applications between data centers and the public cloud. The idea is to effect faster, more efficient integration with Amazon Web Services' EC2, including full server, networking, security and storage integration. More public cloud platforms will be added this year, the company says.
