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.
We realized that while cloud computing changes everything, there are significant gaps between the current state of IT and where it will be when the cloud is fully adopted. This creates challenges for enterprises and opportunities for start-ups.
From our own experience, and from conversations with many leaders in the industry, it became apparent that while the public cloud has many advantages, to benefit from them one needs to completely rewrite applications and be fully dependent on a particular cloud provider or cloud management platform. We thought there should be a better way.
We spent some time trying to figure out if what we set out to do can actually be implemented. Ravello is the result of this journey.
On March 11, 2016, Oracle completed the acquisition of Ravello Systems.
Ravello will join the Oracle Public Cloud (OPC) organization and our products will become part of Oracle Cloud. We believe this agreement will accelerate our ability to reach more customers, deliver more value, and enhance our technology at an accelerated pace in order to better serve you.
Our top priority is ensuring an uninterrupted service and seamless experience for you and all of our customers and partners. Rest assured, Ravello’s service will continue “as is.” In the coming months, we will be working to continue enhancing our value to you and we are looking forward to developing new products and services enabled by this combination.
Oracle Cloud offers best-in-class services across a full suite of products in software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Ravello will join in Oracle’s IaaS mission to allow customers to run any type of workload in the cloud, accelerating Oracle’s ability to help customers quickly and simply move complex applications to the cloud without costly and time-consuming application rewrites.
