Virtustream announced on Thursday that it has been named a 2013 Vendor to Watch by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). In order to be recognized as a Vendor to Watch, companies must demonstrate customer value by delivering solutions for problems that have previously gone unaddressed.
"We're proud to be recognized for our contributions to the industry," said Rodney Rogers, chairman and CEO at Virtustream, "and will remain committed to providing our customers with first-to-market cloud solutions that enable high performance while maintaining a secure environment and cost-efficiencies."
According to the EMA Radar Private Cloud Platforms report, “Virtustream’s radically SLA- and compliance-driven approach to cloud promises a rapid ROI, as it enables customers to immediately migrate business critical legacy workloads to the cloud. Typically, organizations ‘start small’ by moving lower value applications to the cloud first, to avoid potential business disruption. Virtustream’s core value proposition is to eradicate exactly this risk, helping customers realize the maximum benefit from their cloud almost instantaneously.”
Virtustream’s xStream cloud management software for private, virtual private, public and hybrid clouds delivers an innovative approach to deploying mission-critical applications in the cloud. Leveraging Virtustream µVM (micro-VM) technology, xStream provides enterprise-grade security and compliance, multi-tenant efficiency, application performance SLAs and consumption-based charging for both legacy (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.) and web-scale applications.
"Virtustream continues to drive innovation in the cloud market by effectively addressing the diverse needs of enterprises," said Torsten Volk, research director at EMA. "Companies that are moving mission-critical applications to the cloud must meet stringent business demands, and vendors such as Virtustream are making this possible with solutions that deliver a secure, compliant and flexible cloud environment."
