Ravello is an overlay cloud that enables enterprises to run their VMware and KVM workloads with DC-like (L2) networking ‘as-is’ on public cloud without any modifications. With Ravello, enterprises don’t need to convert their VMs or change networking. This empowers the business to rapidly develop and deploy existing DC applications on the public cloud without the associated infrastructure and migration cost and overhead.
Ravello Use Case for Customers.
Streamline infrastructure resources and cut VMware environment overhead to maximize your infrastructure investments:
CI/DC, manual automated
QA, upgrade tests
End- user, partner internal
Penetration tests, brute force attacks
Ravello’s nested virtualization & networking overlay technology enables deploying the data-center based VMware & KVM workloads on Oracle Public Cloud, AWS and Google with a couple of clicks, offering following benefits:
Lift and Shift. Ravello’s cloud enabled hypervisor – HVX – enables rapid deployment of virtualized VMware & KVM workloads to public clouds without any network or storage re-configuration work. Ravello fully encap-sulates the DC based virtualized application which can be moved from on-premises data center to public cloud using an intuitive UI with point-and-click simplicity.
Increased Agility. Business needs are ever-changing, so too are the requirements –multiple copies of production applications are needed for development testing, staging, UAT etc. With Ravello, enterprises can run their DC based apps on public cloud ‘as-is’, and rapidly deploy multiple high fidelity clones of this environment on cloud using Ravello’s innovative blueprinting capability.
Reduced Cost. After moving VMware workloads to Ravello enterprises can save on CapEx and OpEx costs associated with running and mana-ging a DC (including license and support costs for hypervisor (ESX) and management tools such as vSphere). Re-testing costs can be significantly reduced by using Ravello when migrating them from on-premises to the Cloud as the environment remains exactly as it was on-premise.
