Ravello enables you to run your existing VMware or KVM workloads completely unmodified in any public cloud, for dev & test. Complex networking including static IPs, multiple subnets and VLANs stays the same. No conversions or cloud migrations are required, thus ensuring your cloud-based dev & test environments are replicas of your on-premises production.
Ravello saves a blueprint of your application, enabling you to automatically spin up multiple instances of the entire multi-tier application along with its networking and storage configurations with one click or API call.
Multiple developers and test engineers can easily create their own multi-tier application environments based on application blueprints. They can spin up their own instances right from their IDE and snapshot or clone the entire environment as needed. Engineers can also share and collaborate on live application instances.
Ravello is powered by the industry’s first cloud application hypervisor. It consists of a high performance nested hypervisor and overlay software defined networking and storage. This allows you to take your VMware virtual machines and run them unmodified in any public cloud. Everything, including the OS and application configuration, drivers etc. stay exactly the same. The networking overlay enables you to maintain all existing enterprise network topologies including static IPs, DNS, DHCP, and more.
Unlike other cloud providers, Ravello charges per application, not per VM. Ravello prices include the underlying cloud. You have an account with Ravello and get one bill from Ravello at the end of the month. You do not need to pay the cloud provider separately.
