Ravello Cloud Service

Ravello Cloud Service.

Oracle Ravello Cloud Service.

Ravello is an overlay cloud with which businesses can run their VMware and KVM workloads with data centre-similar (L2) networks in a public cloud without having to make 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 overheads to maximise your infrastructure investments:

  • Development testing – CI/DC, manual automated.
  • QA, upgrade tests – Training, end user, partner internal.
  • Security testing – Penetration tests, Brute force attacks, DDOS attacks.
  • Enterprise apps – Dev/test, staging, functional testing.

Leverage resources as and when you actually need them with pay-as-you-use.

Smoothing the path to the cloud.

Ravello’s nested virtualisation and networking overlay technology enables deploying the data-centre based VMware and KVM workloads in the Oracle Public Cloud, AWS and Google with a couple of clicks. This provides the following benefits:

  • Lift and shift. Ravello’s cloud enabled hypervisor—HVX—enables rapid deployment of virtualised VMware and KVM workloads to public clouds without any network or storage re-configuration work. Ravello fully encapsulates the data centre-based virtualised application, which can be moved from the on-site data centre to a public cloud with an intuitive user interface with a click of a mouse.
  • Greater agility. Business needs are ever-changing, so too are the requirements as multiple copies of production applications are needed for development testing, staging, UAT etc. With Ravello, enterprises can run their DC based apps in the public cloud ‘as-is’, and rapidly deploy multiple high fidelity clones of this environment using Ravello’s innovative blueprinting capability.
  • Lower costs. After moving VMware workloads to Ravello enterprises can save on CapEx and OpEx costs associated with running and managing a DC (including licence 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.
