In today's global marketplace, nearly every business decision is also an IT decision. But IT organizations are struggling to find the right balance between maintaining mission-critical 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 flexibility that can help differentiate their products and services. Most cloud computing offerings in the market today are only focused on low-cost, best-effort delivery. This is simply not acceptable for the majority of an enterprise's business-critical applications.
Virtustream xStream™ is the only computing cloud management software that delivers true enterprise class cloud computing. Available as a Private Cloud or Public Cloud, xStream™ supports complex heterogeneous enterprise IT environments and multiple business models for Cloud Service Providers. Using patented µVM™ technology, xStream™ is able to deliver application-level performance SLAs for both traditional and web-scale applications.
While all businesses are looking for greater flexibility from their IT investments, concern about cloud computing security continues to be a critical factor when looking for ways to solve business challenges. Virtustream xStream™ resolves these concerns by integrating multi-level security and encryption that provides trusted application environments that are continuously monitored and comply with industry and government regulations. The deployment flexibility of xStream™ allows businesses to be confident that their applications and data are secure and protected, regardless of where they are deployed (Public, Private, Virtual Private and 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 xStream™ platform to improve performance, reduce costs and take full advantage of the power of cloud to deliver dynamic, scalable and agile IT delivery. xStream™ also enables production and mission-critical applications to take advantage of emerging technologies such as big data analytics (eg. SAP HANA, Hadoop) and integrated features like backup and disaster recovery.
Virtustream xStream™ enables enterprise, government and service provider customers to choose from a wide range of deployment models. Enterprise and government customers can choose Enterprise Class Cloud services from Virtustream's on-demand IaaS Cloud, or they can deploy the xStream™ Cloud Management platform on-premise to create a Private or Hybrid Cloud.
Service Providers can use xStream™ as the foundation for differentiated capabilities offered from their own data centers as direct, white-labeled or OEM services. Virtustream offers Service Providers the unique ability to ramp-up services quickly by leveraging existing assets and systems, as well as eliminating much of the complexity usually associated with buying individual elements from multiple vendors.
