SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 17, 2017) - CloudVelox, a leader in cloud automation and orchestration software, today announced that PTC (NASDAQPTC) has selected its One Hybrid Cloud™ software as the company plans to migrate more than one thousand servers to Amazon Web Services, which will result in a cost savings of more than 90 percent as the global organization consolidates existing data centers.

PTC is a global provider of technology platforms and solutions that transform how companies create, operate, and service the "things" in the Internet of Things (IoT). PTC developed a data center consolidation strategy, which will involve multiple AWS regions globally with a mix of both Linux and Window environments.

Using One Hybrid Cloud, PTC expects to dramatically shorten the process of migrating more than one thousand servers, compared to doing so manually or using a VM migration tool. As a result of using CloudVelox's automated solution, the company will be able to execute its data center consolidation strategy more quickly. CloudVelox's software will help enable PTC to overcome common migration obstacles such as speed, efficiency, security, and network configurations.

"CloudVelox enables us to reduce the time required to consolidate global data centers and allows us to improve the process through its unique features," said Eugene Von Taube, Sr. Director of Information Technology at PTC. "During the short proof of concept (PoC) process, we were impressed by the immense flexibility of One Hybrid Cloud, which allowed us to do network customization and assign security groups all through automation. This made it easy to validate our application characteristics and determine how they would map into the AWS cloud."

"CloudVelox enables us to achieve our business objectives far more quickly than we expected," said Von Taube. "The CloudVelox approach enables us to easily tackle a very complex network and to address many issues that could hold us up.

One Hybrid Cloud offers a leading cloud automation and orchestration software platform for the enterprise, allowing even the largest, most complex data centers to migrate to any cloud easier than ever before. It extends AWS' security seamlessly to enterprise data stored on-premises and gives customers the ability to run their existing and new Linux and Windows multi-tier and multi-system apps without modification on the AWS Cloud. 

"One Hybrid Cloud software automates and simplifies dozens of complex manual cloud migration processes, eliminating the complexities and delays that can be a substantial barrier to cloud adoption," said James Kessinger, Chief Marketing Officer at CloudVelox. "The unprecedented breadth of automation reduces cloud migration times and risks, and can reduce expenses by more than 90 percent for multi-tier apps. The cloud then becomes an ideal disaster recovery and Dev/Test option for both enterprise apps and mission-critical workloads."

One Hybrid Cloud™ uses an Automated Application Blueprint-based approach to the provisioning of critical storage, security and network processes on AWS. It is a single solution for cloud migration, cloud recovery and cloud dev/test, featuring a simple drag-and-drop interface that allows IT to leverage cloud services without having to understand the complexity of cloud.
