Tervela Inc. is a privately held technology company based in Boston, Massachusetts and New York, New York. The company is backed by Goldman Sachs, Sigma Partners, Acartha Technology Group, and North Hill Ventures. Tervela was founded by Barry Thompson and Kul Singh.


Tervela was founded in 2004, at the beginning of a massive transformation in the way businesses built and operated high-performance distributed applications.[citation needed]Tervela's Data Fabric consists of both hardware appliances and software (virtual) appliances that overlay on top of existing data center infrastructure and cloud services. The company introduced the first hardware accelerated messaging switch in 2007 prior to this hardware accelerated message switching was done primarily on XML data. In 2009 the company introduced several products that allowed scalable middleware to deliver messages incrementally scalable well into the millions of messages per second. In 2011 Tervela introduced a set of virtual appliances compatible with the hardware accelerated appliances.

As the growth of cloud services and content collaboration platforms in particular began to accelerate[1], in 2015 Tervela launched Cloud FastPath, a SaaS for migrating organizations user data into content collaboration platforms from on-premises file servers, SharePoint, ECM systems, as well as between content collaboration systems. Between 2015 and 2017, Tervela announced partnerships with Box[2], Dropbox[3], Google[4], Microsoft[5], Egnyte, and other platform providers.


Cloud FastPath[edit]

Cloud FastPath is an on-premises-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud migration solution focused on unstructured content. It integrates with many cloud service providers, file sync and share services, and other hosting and on premises technologies.

Analytics Cloud FastPath Analytics helps migration operators identify problematic files before migration, segment content based on its source profile, and understand how content will map into the new platform.

Content Mapping Cloud FastPath Content Mapping capabilities allow users to translate user and group permissions, roles, metadata, and ownership between dissimilar platforms. In addition, users are able to remap content and apply custom metadata.

Transfer Automation Cloud FastPath includes a number of transfer performance enhancements as well as syncing, scheduling, project management tools, and bandwidth scheduling for migration operators to simplify and expedite the content migration process.

Cloud FastPath has been included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Cloud Office Migration Tools[6], and Forrester’s File Analytics Vendor Landscape[7].

Data Fabric[edit]

Tervela provides both hardware and software appliances. Hardware and software appliances are compatible with the APIs which consist of C, C++, C# JAVA and JMS. Downloads of the software (virtual appliances are available on the company website). Capacity of the data fabric can be increased by adding additional appliances. Information about messaging can be found in Enterprise Integration Patterns [8]

Persistence Engine The TPE-500 is a storage engine that is embedded in the data fabric and optimized for message persistence and retrieval.

Provisioning and Management The Tervela TPM-500 Provisioning & Management System is the unified, comprehensive administrative platform for Tervela's Data Fabric.
