Virtustream Delivers xStream 2.0, Cloud Software to Run Private, Public and Hybrid Enterprise-Class Clouds

Virtustream, Inc., the leading enterprise cloud solutions provider, today announced xStream 2.0, a highly secure, high performance enterprise-class cloud solution for private, virtual private, public and hybrid clouds. xStream 2.0 is available as software, as a stand-alone appliance and as a managed service – enabling customers to choose the best solution to meet their needs. xStream uniquely lets customers manage hybrid clouds allowing them to select a tailored mix of on-site private cloud, combined with off-site public and virtual private clouds.

“As enterprises move toward migrating production workloads to the cloud, the technology platform used must be designed with application performance and flexibility in mind if IT transformation is to be sustainable,” said Agatha Poon, research manager, global cloud computing for 451 Research. “Cloud offerings, like xStream 2.0, that focus on workload performance regardless of deployment model are part of the answer.”

The Enterprise-Class Cloud

xStream 2.0 has a set of unique capabilities specifically designed for the enterprise cloud market:

  • Hybrid Cloud Solution: xStream allows enterprises to control their IT infrastructure as a single cloud, combining onsite private clouds, offsite virtual private/public clouds and managed cloud services providing a tailored hybrid cloud to suit each enterprise’s requirements;
  • Enterprise-Grade Security and Compliance: xStream provides multi-layered logical and physical cloud security, in-depth threat monitoring and includes silicon-level authentication with Intel TxT, to meet the highest security and compliance standards, enabling enterprises to meet: NIST 800-53 (Federal), DIACAP, ICD503 (Defense), FISMA (Government), G-Cloud (U.K. Government), SSAE16 (Audit), ISO27001 (Service), HIPAA (Healthcare), PCI (e-commerce), SAS70 (Audit), ODCA and other industry standards;
  • Application Performance SLAs: xStream uses patented Virtustream µVMTM technology to optimally and dynamically combine compute, memory, network and storage to deliver application performance assured by commercial SLAs, with cloud efficiency; and,
  • Consumption Based Pricing/Chargeback: xStream allows true consumption based pricing/chargeback, so enterprises pay only for resources that they actually use, each 5 minutes.

Additionally, xStream 2.0 provides the versatility to allow enterprises to run both mission-critical legacy and web-scale software in the cloud, gaining cloud benefits without rewriting existing applications; µVM technology delivers optimal multi-tenant virtualization tailored by application; and xStream runs as a macro hypervisor/cloud director that works with leading virtualization software and with all major hardware to be compatible with enterprise and service provider’s existing installations.

“Enterprises run extremely complex IT environments that mix many legacy and web-scale applications. Until now, there have been no cloud solutions that gave customers the confidence to move both legacy and web-scale applications to the cloud,” said Rodney Rogers, chairman and CEO, Virtustream. “Virtustream’s xStream software fills that gap by providing them with an enterprise-class cloud solution – for private clouds, virtual private/public clouds and a combination of both in a hybrid model.”

“The cloud offers a major opportunity for enterprises to move legacy applications to the cloud and reap the benefits of multi-tenant efficiency, dynamic scalability, on-demand access and significant cost savings,” said Kevin Reid, CEO and CTO of Virtustream. “At Virtustream, we’ve helped hundreds of enterprises move to the cloud, and the xStream 2.0 solution provides companies with the technology they need to fulfill their enterprise cloud requirements.”
