Virtustream Positioned in the "Visionaries" Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service

Virtustream, Inc., the leading enterprise class cloud solutions provider, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service,”i which examined 15 vendors whose cloud compute solutions address scale-out cloud hosting, virtual lab environment, self-managed Virtual Data Center (VDC) and turnkey VDC.

According to Gartner, “Service providers are increasingly using dynamic physical and logical isolation mechanisms to create ‘private’ infrastructure within a shared, multitenant capacity pool. This allows economies of scale while enabling customers to meet a broader range of security and compliance requirements.”

“Our xStream cloud solution allows enterprises to move mission-critical legacy and web-scale applications to the cloud. We’re very proud to be recognized in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud IaaS, for our enterprise-class cloud solution,” said Rodney Rogers, chairman and chief executive officer of Virtustream. “We continue our innovative solution development providing our customers with an enterprise-class cloud solution – for private clouds, virtual private/public clouds and hybrid clouds.”

Gartner reports that, “Initially, most businesses choose use cases that are peripheral to their organization's IT needs, but over time, adopt cloud IaaS for mainstream business applications as well, including mission-critical applications, mirroring the past decade's adoption pattern of virtualization in the data center. Many businesses, especially in the midmarket, will eventually migrate away from running their own data centers in favor of relying primarily on infrastructure in the cloud.”

Virtustream’s xStream cloud platform is covered in more detail in the report. xStream delivers an innovative approach to private, virtual private and hybrid clouds, enabling customers to deploy mission-critical applications in the cloud, backed by application SLAs. Powered by Virtustream µVMTM (micro-VM) technology, xStream delivers enterprise-grade security and compliance, multi-tenant efficiency, application performance SLAs and consumption based charging for mission-critical legacy and web-scale applications.
