High availability and resiliency

Enterprise mission-critical applications are the life’s blood of the modern enterprise.  For these applications, availability is key. Virtustream Enterprise Cloud was architected to deliver unparalleled availability – from its enterprise-class, highly redundant architectures powered by Dell EMC infrastructure and VMware based virtualization, to multi-data center replication services, to available managed private networking solutions. Virtustream Enterprise Cloud delivers with industry-leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs), including 99.999% guarantees at the Infrastructure level, and available 99.95% SLAs at the application level, when optional managed services are selected.

Security and compliance

From the infrastructure up, we’ve designed and built our platform with security at the top of mind. The solution includes a comprehensive set of integrated security controls and services to match a given workload to the appropriate IT security infrastructure. This includes services like integrated software firewall management, host based anti-virus services, disk encryption, and host and network-based intrusion detection services. When combined with wide range of industry-specific and government certifications like PCI DSS, ISO 9001:2015/27001:2013, iRAP, HIPAA, FedRAMP, HITRUST, SOC 2 and others, Virtustream Enterprise Cloud creates a trusted environment to run even the most sensitive enterprise data. 



True consumption pricing

Virtustream pioneered a revolutionary consumption-based economic model based on actual consumption of cloud resources. This means you only pay for the resources you actually use in Virtustream Enterprise Cloud, rather than the traditional cloud model where you pay for what you allocate. For enterprise applications that are designed using scale-up architectures, our industry unique, patented MicroVM(µVM) cloud resource allocation and management technology can radically alter the economics of cloud.  It measures fine-grained measurement of compute, memory, network, and storage consumption, reducing inefficiencies and creating significant cost savings while eliminating virtualized overhead from unused or underutilized virtual machines.
