Virtustream Builds a Cloud Computing Platform With a Difference
Virtustream is a full-spectrum cloud provider that delivers enterprise class cloud solutions to clients worldwide. Virtustream wanted to offer clients enterprise-class cloud services and provide greater performance than other cloud computing providers, offering cloud services with application SLAs, consumption-based pricing and compelling cloud economics. They chose IBM to over come these challenges. IBM solutions are at the center of Virtustream's Cloud platform, including IBM System x 3650 class servers and an extensive suite of IBM Tivoli software. Virtustream's enterprise clients benefit from significant Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings. The flexibility of the IBM System x platform enables Virtustream to run as many as 30-40 Virtual Machines (VMs) on each physical server and Tivoli software helps to control network traffic.
