StorPool, the software-defined storage company and Hystax, the leader in live cloud migration and Disaster Recovery, entered into a partnership. The partnership between the parties will help companies to build efficient and capable new-age clouds and migrate their existing workloads seamlessly to the new stack, from their old legacy IT infrastructure.
As business becomes more competitive than ever, and IT becomes more complex, having the right IT solutions is critical to the survival and growth of any business. This drives the adoption of new-age IT solutions, such as Software-defined technologies, API driven self-service design, Linux/KVM-based stacks, Kubernetes, and public/private clouds, among many others.
Often new and old stacks need to co-exist, but usually, there are changes in the IT infrastructure components such as operating systems, hypervisors, and cloud management systems. In this case, companies need to migrate their workloads and applications seamlessly.
By delivering high-performance storage systems for the new-age IT stacks across the world, StorPool has accumulated tremendous expertise in helping companies design, build and run new-age IT systems. Meanwhile, Hystax has been at the forefront of migrating data between IT stacks for years now. Hystax Acura is a smart and fully automated software to move workloads and business applications to StorPool storage from any source platform, including VMware, Hyper-V, bare metal, and public clouds. The partnership between the two companies comes as a solution to the common deployment and migration problems that companies have when adopting innovation.
“When building a New-Age cloud, companies often switch from one hypervisor or cloud orchestration to another. A typical move we see is the shift from VMware to OpenStack+KVM, for example. Many customers ask us what is the best migration plan from the old to the new stack. Further, we believe that each company should stay focused on its core business activity, and this is why customers should use the services of a proven expert in data migration like Hystax. This will ensure their smooth and fast migration from old to their New-Age IT stack”, said Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool.
“Reliable and secure storage is extremely valuable for private and public clouds. Hystax is happy to win StorPool as a strategic partner to provide an industry-leading offering to our joint customers worldwide. Our partnership is designed to help companies implement an effective cloud transformation strategy and meet complex business needs in IT Resilience and workloads mobility.”, Nick Smirnov, CEO at Hystax.
