Velostrata Debuts Tech That Tears Down A Major Barrier To Cloud Adoption

Israeli-American startup Velostrata exited its stealth phase this week with software that entirely decouples compute operations from data storage. While simple in concept, the company's technology eliminates what has been a major barrier to hybrid cloud adoption.

Until now, commonly accepted wisdom was that storage and compute had to be adequately coupled to provide satisfactory performance, CEO Issy Ben-Shaul told CRN. That's slowed some organizations, wary of moving their data outside the data center, from fully embracing cloud computing.

Velostrata's product allows businesses to take advantage of public cloud compute services, such as Amazon Web Services, while keeping their data within their own facilities. That has the potential to significantly accelerate adoption of hybrid cloud systems.
