Ravello

Ravello on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Previously I blogged about the Ravello platform and how it allows you to move an VMware workload (app) to the cloud (AWS / GCE) as-is, hence it is as easy as exporting the application from your VMware-environment and importing it into Ravello (here).

Recently I was invited to join the beta of the new Ravello platform which also allows to run these Ravello workloads on Oracle’s own cloud (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) and test how the new additional modes of running Ravello increases performance for the workloads.

Ravello Systems – Smart Labs

After reading about the cloud platform from Ravello Systems on twitter and was triggered by their announcement of Inception (beta), as I really like the movie with the same title. I decided to give it a go for myself and write a small blog article about it.

About Ravello Systems

Ravello Systems is best at explaining who they are and what they do:

Ravello was founded in early 2011 with the sole purpose of changing the way companies, large and small consume the public cloud. Ravello is brought to you by the team that introduced the KVM hypervisor (now the standard virtualization technology in Linux). We have deep expertise in virtualization, cloud, networking and storage technologies.

Ravello’s Smart Labs have self-contained capsules to run your VMware/KVM development, test, training and demo environments in the cloud without migration. Smart Labs on AWS or Google powered by nested virtualization
