Evolute enables companies to streamline digital transformation with simplified containerization solutions
Containers are all the rage. They provide applications and services with everything they need to run on-premises, in a datacenter, or in the cloud. Containers make efficient use of expensive resources, being quicker and simpler to deploy, operate, and manage than monolithic servers or virtual machines (VMs). They help drive the established benefits brought by convergence—the integration of discrete technologies and functions into a single device, system, or infrastructure.
The team at Evolute realized that with their deep container experience, they could speed organizations’ digital transformation, helping accelerate change, enhance cloud adoption, and achieve fundamental business goals much more quickly. Evolute built a cloud platform that helps transform any software into a container. It includes infrastructure and management tools that streamline deployment and bring agility and speed to achieving scalability, distribution, and storage. Evolute software make process planning straightforward, and simplify container migration, management, and optimization. The Evolute platform helps ensure enterprises have a simple deployment stack from top to bottom. The result is that your business can quickly spin up a more efficient and effective IT infrastructure that takes less time and expense to manage, freeing staff to spend more time on higher-value, bottom-line projects.
A key benefit is the increase in efficiency offered by a dramatic reduction in an enterprise organization’s overall software footprint. Evolute has shown that containerizing an average VM-based application can take 60 GB of software down to about 160 MB, helping reduce global distribution time from weeks to just a few hours. The Evolute platform has deployed thousands of applications in sub-60 second timeframes with five-nines availability built into the platform. Evolute does the work, automatically analyzing your virtual machine environment (or bare metal environment) and coordinating migration to a container infrastructure. It then offers management and operations tools to perform ongoing optimization and scaling for containers to help respond to changing business conditions.
Evolute is a one-stop shop for your IT management and infrastructure, supported by Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack to provide ubiquitous solutions that run at edge locations, on-premises, in private clouds, and in the public cloud. You can take existing software and data, new development and integration projects—your entire current ecosystem—and reap huge gains with the addition of key cloud capabilities such as global redundancy, compliance, on-demand scalability, and rapid global distribution. CEO Kristopher Francisco points out that each time he rolls out a new capability or feature, he sees new opportunities. He’s excited to see the growing numbers of customers he can help bring to the next level of transformation using the Microsoft Azure platform and Evolute’s infrastructure.
Francisco thinks all enterprise software startups should consider working with Microsoft, with Azure, and with Azure Marketplace. He believes the largest business and enterprise applications opportunities are with Microsoft, and that Microsoft’s focus on helping accelerate software sales is second to none. Putting his solutions on Azure Marketplace helps raise visibility and provides Evolute with a new channel for demand-driven, account-based sales. The Marketplace is where his potential customers are, and Francisco notes that it helps him not only to tailor strategic messaging to identified sectors, but the feedback and analytics provided by Azure Marketplace allow startups to listen to where customers are experiencing problems and seeking solutions. “It becomes exciting when you learn how your technology can solve the latest problems at Toyota, or your hard and long fought for achievements at Chevron can benefit other energy providers,” he says.
As an extension of his marketing efforts, Azure Marketplace helps get Evolute solutions into the hands of customers around the globe. Francisco feels it’s one of the best investments a startup can make.
