First Hybrid Enterprise Cloud Platform Launched

Virtustream Announces xStream

"Through Virtustream's three pillars of service excellence - Professional Services, Cloud Services and Managed Services - xStream is bookended by deeply experienced transformation services and the operating skills to sustain it," said Kevin Reid, CEO at Virtustream (pictured), as his company today announced what they claim is the first truly hybrid enterprise cloud platform "that delivers cost and resource savings through flexible internal (private) and external (off-premise) cloud environments."

Industry commentators sich as Dan Kusnetzky, VP of Research Operations at The 451 Group concurred:

"Cloud computing, as with other platforms for an organization's work, produces the highest levels of success when based upon a clear understanding of that organization's strategic requirements, their enterprise IT architecture and a robust understanding of the technology and best practices of both cloud computing and virtualization. This level of planning and experience is really needed if the organization hopes to be able to realize the full promise of both virtualization and cloud computing."

xStream is based, says the company, on Virtustream's track record of nearly a decade of providing virtualization solutions, and it serves as the foundation for additional offerings including professional services and managed services.

Virtustream's xStream platform offers a number of additional differentiating features that deliver benefits and efficiencies to enterprise IT, including:

  • Better resource utilization due to aggregate workload focus
  • Award winning transformation and on-boarding toolkit
  • Vendor agnostic approach to leverage best-of-breed hardware and software

xStream is available immediately and is priced on a subscription basis by contacting Virtustream.
