Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud software and services provider, today announced IBM will use Virtustream’s cloud management platform (CMP) software, xStream, as an option to deliver SAP and SAP HANA environments on the SoftLayer, an IBM Company, cloud globally for both managed and customer managed SAP environments. This partnership will enable companies to easily move existing mission-critical SAP applications to the SoftLayer cloud with confidence - gaining cloud efficiency and enhancing both security and performance.
In addition, Virtustream will also utilize SoftLayer data centers and cloud infrastructure to expand its own Infrastructure-as-a-Service business service beyond current capacities in the US and UK markets in which it currently operates.
“We are very excited to work with IBM to address the explosive market of migrating, running, and managing mission-critical SAP applications in the cloud,” said Chairman and CEO of Virtustream Rodney Rogers. “We believe the combination of xStream, Virtustream’s cloud management software, and SoftLayer’s cloud infrastructure will be the premier cloud solution offered in the market today.”
Virtustream xStream CMP software is purpose-built for enterprise, government and service provider customers wanting to deploy mission-critical and production applications in cloud environments. xStream software can be added to existing virtualized and/or physical infrastructure to provide highly secure, compliant and performance assured clouds – private, public and hybrid. The company’s underlying Virtustream Micro-VMTM (µVM) technology enables IT expenses to be efficiently reduced, while assuring the overall performance of the mission-critical applications when running in a cloud. With xStream, customers are now able to move existing mission-critical enterprise applications to the cloud, without re-engineering the software, and without compromising on performance or security.
The SoftLayer cloud, managed by Virtustream’s xStream CMP software, will enable clients to migrate and run the entire SAP portfolio in the cloud: SAP ECC/ERP, SAP HANA, SAP BI, SAP BW, SAP B1 and other SAP products. The solution supports both production and test/dev environments and delivers dynamic cloud efficiency, on-demand scale, assured performance and enhanced security.
“Businesses today are looking for ways to lower the cost of deployment and gain greater efficiency in addressing new market opportunity,” said IBM General Manager of Cloud Services, James Comfort. “By delivering SAP applications using the SoftLayer cloud running Virtustream’s Cloud Management Platform software, companies will now have broader choices and new levels of control to design the cloud environment best suited to their business.”
Virtustream is the enterprise-class cloud software and service provider trusted by enterprises worldwide to migrate and run their mission-critical applications in the cloud. For enterprises, service providers and government agencies, only Virtustream's xStream™ cloud management platform (CMP) software and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) meet the security, compliance, performance, efficiency and consumption-based billing requirements of complex production applications in the cloud - whether private, public or hybrid. The company is headquartered in Washington D.C. with offices in San Francisco, Atlanta, London, Geneva, Dubai and software development centers in Kaunas, Lithuania and Pune, India. Virtustream owns and operates data centers in the U.S. and Europe with service provider partner data centers in Latin America, the Middle East and Asia.
