By seamlessly combining Private and Public Cloud resources, businesses can utilize the IT and application resources best aligned with their business objectives.
Hybrid Cloud brings together the best of both Public and Private Cloud to create an integrated cloud environment that operates as a single unified whole rather than as separate disjoint systems. xStream™ Cloud Management allows IT organizations to seamlessly create Hybrid Cloud environments and securely deploy applications into them, regardless of location. This allows the business to select the most optimal deployment model for each application and project.
Today's business world no longer has fixed boundaries. The ability to consume IT resources where and when needed is critical to solving key business challenges with cloud computing. xStream™ Hybrid Cloud allows applications to be consumed from Private Cloud resources or Virtual Private Cloud resources.
Different business projects have different cost requirements, some CAPEX and some OPEX. Being able to align project requirements to how the IT resources are consumed is a unique feature of xStream™ Cloud Management.
While there are many cloud computing options for business today, too often customers must struggle with the operational differences between Private Cloud and Public Cloud offerings. xStream™ Cloud Management eliminates the operational differences between Private and Public Cloud offerings, simplifying management practices and ensuring that business applications are secure and achieve assured SLA levels.
