The Virtustream xStream cloud management platform is an integrated solution that enables enterprise IT organizations and cloud service providers to deliver enterprise-class application services to their customers. Using a patented cloud resource management technology (µVM™), xStream creates secure, multi-tenant cloud environments that deliver assured SLA levels for business-critical applications and services.
xStream can be deployed in an enterprise environment to create a private cloud or by a service provider to create a public cloud, and enables secure federation to create hybrid clouds that span on-premise and off-premise environments.
xStream is available as software or a preconfigured hardware appliance.

In today’s competitive marketplace, nearly every significant business decision is also an IT decision. But IT organizations are struggling to find the right balance between maintaining existing systems and implementing new innovation for the business. They need a way to improve the performance of existing applications, reduce overall IT costs, and gain a level of agility that can help differentiate their products and services. Most cloud computing offerings in the market today are focused on low cost, best effort delivery. This is simply not acceptable for the majority of an enterprise’s business-critical applications.
Virtustream xStream delivers true enterprise-class cloud computing, supporting complex heterogeneous enterprise IT environments and mission-critical applications, including packaged applications like those from SAP, Oracle and Microsoft. Using our patented µVM™ technology, xStream delivers superior, predictable performance for both traditional and web applications. xStream customers typically experience reduced IT costs by up to 30-50% due to xStream’s µVM resource management architecture.
Security continues to be a critical factor as enterprises adopt cloud computing. xStream addresses these concerns by integrating multi-level security and encryption that provides trusted application environments that are transparent, continuously monitored and readily comply with industry and government regulations. With xStream you can be confident that their applications and data are secure and protected, regardless of whether they are deployed in a public, private, or hybrid cloud.
Too often, business-critical applications remain costly and stagnant because they do not appear to have a path forward. Virtustream helps businesses migrate legacy applications to the cloud to improve performance, reduce costs and take full advantage of the dynamic, scalable and agile nature of cloud computing. xStream also allows enterprises to take advantage of emerging technologies such as big data analytics (e.g. SAP HANA, Hadoop) and integrated features like backup and disaster recovery.
xStream allows enterprise and government customers to choose from a wide range of deployment models to meet a variety of business needs. xStream can be deployed on-premise--either as software or as an integrated hardware appliance--to create a private cloud. Customers can also choose Virtustream’s own Enterprise Class Cloud, an xStream-powered on-demand infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering. Hybrid cloud environments are also easily created, allowing federated management of interconnected public and private clouds.
With cloud computing adoption accelerating, more and more enterprises are seeking cloud service providers (CSPs) to help them migrate segments of their IT landscape to the cloud. They are seeking CSPs that can deliver consistent levels of quality, across multiple application portfolios and across multiple geographies. They are seeking CSPs that can help them with both legacy enterprise applications and modern web-scale applications. And they are favoring those CSPs able to help them navigate the various governmental and industry regulations that impact their compliance needs.
Virtustream offers cloud service providers unique access to its xStream cloud management platform, the software and processes that are the foundation for the company’s award-winning IaaS offerings.
xStream enables multi-tenacy, application-level SLAs, advanced security, monitoring and broad compliance for a mix of legacy and web-scale applications and can be delivered to CSPs through any of several deployment models, each customized to meet their unique individual business models and go-to-market needs:
Virtustream offers a full range of services to help CSPs design, build, and operate enterprise class cloud services.
In the largest opportunities, Virtustream is able to set up, establish, operate and sell/market a full enterprise-class cloud service for a telecoms operator.
