ZeroStack Delivers Hybrid Cloud that Eliminates
Dependence on VMware® ESX

One-Click Workload Portability to ZeroStack Cloud Platform
Eliminates ESX Lock-In

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – September 12, 2016 – ZeroStack, pioneering the cloud-managed datacenter delivering agility without complexity, today announced that its Cloud Platform can break industry dependence on VMware ESX by offering one-click workload porting from ESX to ZeroStack. ZeroStack is now the only company to offer bi-directional application portability across hypervisors, and to integrate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and VMware® vSphere®.

Companies are balking at the idea of single-vendor lock-in for cloud infrastructure, but they have such large investments in ESX and related tools that they feel trapped. ZeroStack unpacks workloads from ESX and migrates them to its Cloud Platform with one click, giving customers access to KVM-based tools as well as OpenStack APIs.

“Our customers rely on us to deliver the latest, easiest-to-use software for web development and that means streamlining operations,” said Rajesh Rajaram, CEO at Auction Software. “ZeroStack has given us cost-effective, state-of-the-art hybrid cloud technology that makes my developers more productive, and that’s a strategic value for us.”

“ZeroStack is clearly leading the transition to hybrid cloud by offering a neutral platform that on-boards applications and workloads to and from AWS and VMware,” said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research. “ZeroStack has created a seamless bridge from VMware or AWS to a neutral hybrid cloud.”

“IT markets are not just moving to the cloud — they are moving to “clouds,” said Ed Anderson, research vice president and Sid Nag, research director at Gartner in their report: “Market Trends: Cloud Adoption Trends Favor Public Cloud With a Hybrid Twist,” published August 4, 2016. “Evidence is mounting that as organizations mature in their usage of cloud services they are opting to use multiple cloud services, bound together through hybrid implementations.”
