Google’s acquisition of Velostrata at the beginning of the month along with other acquisitions in the space (CloudVelox, Racemi and AtaData) made small waves in the world of enterprise cloud migration solution providers. In some cases, the acquisitions were less about shareholder value creation and more about businesses failing to meet strategic objectives, scale, and profitability. According to public information, Velostrata’s features will end up being integrated into Google’s Cloud platform and no longer be available for other cloud providers which along with the other “acquisitions” in the space has created a technological void among providers of cloud migration services. Fortunately, RiverMeadow’s SaaS Migration Platform (“Platform”) and Services can fill that void.
