xStream®

One Management Platform. Greater control.

Single interface across complex, distributed IT environments—and can be added to existing IT to create public, private, or hybrid clouds.

Built to Manage Your Enterprise IT

xStream was created to deliver economic and business benefits for your entire portfolio of applications—including mission-critical enterprise applications like SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and more. Whether it’s ERP, CRM, databases, mail, web apps, or thousands more, xStream enables your IT environment and outperform traditional IT operations.

In addition to the CPU and RAM measurements typically used to allocate virtual machine resources, xStream incorporates network and storage I/O—ensuring that workloads are never I/O-starved, regardless of transaction or storage read/write volume. These metrics are also used to define service-level agreements (SLAs) from infrastructure through operating system (OS) and databases (DBs). Enterprise IT can now run existing applications, including production SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and custom applications in the cloud, with SLAs structured to cover beyond infrastructure availability.

True cloud economics

The Virtustream MicroVM (μVM) is the company’s patented cloud resource management technology. MicroVM  technology allows for fair and accurate provisioning of virtual machine instance, and extremely granular measurement of IT resources those instances use in clouds powered by xStream.

Fully compatible with traditional virtualization, MicroVM resource management’s consumption-based approach yields significant advantages compared to the allocation-based method of other clouds—including unified measurement and billing across clouds, improved performance, more efficient resource utilization, and true consumption billing with chargeback and showback features.
