  xStream Datasheet The Enterprise-Class Cloud Enterprises require a different type of cloud. Until recently, the majority of clouds have been “best-effort” public clouds, consisting of basic virtualization, a toolkit, a set of APIs and Web access. Businesses have used these public clouds for testing and development and for web-scale applications. But enterprises also need to bring the economic and business benefits of cloud to their entire portfolio of enterprise applications—including mission-critical legacy applications and web-scale applications. These enterprise-class clouds need to be secure, dynamic, multi-tenant efficient, simple to manage, compliant with auditing and regulatory policies and include backup/disaster recovery. To be able to support mission-critical applications in the cloud, enterprises require guaranteed application performance.Increasingly enterprises wish to seamlessly combine existing IT with private clouds and benefit from public/virtual private clouds, as a result they are increasingly looking for a hybrid solution. Virtustream’s xStream cloud solution meets enterprise-class cloud requirements and offers a private, public and hybrid solution while enabling more savings, flexibility and business benefits than any other alternative. Virtustream delivers the enterprise class cloud for mission-critical applications, delivering the cloud value that public cloud vendors have pioneered for test/dev and web-scale applications. The Benefits ã Optimal hybrid cloud solution: private, virtual private and/or public ã Supports both legacy and web-scale applications ã Enterprise-grade security and compliance ã Performance SLAs for mission-critical applications ã Multi-tenant economic benefits of cloud ã Consumption-based pricing: pay only for what’s actually used ã Operational simplicity by pooling resources and applying policies to those pools ã Supports leading hypervisors and runs on the majority of enterprise hardware ã Role-based management portal for CxOs, CIO, IT ops, business leaders and users ã Optional managed services for secure cloud bursting, backup and disaster recovery ã Backed by comprehensive cloud professional services: strategy, migration, setup and management xStream: Running the Enterprise-Class Cloud xStream is enterprise-class cloud software for private, virtual private, public and hybrid clouds—available as software, as an appliance or as a managed cloud service. xStream is powered by Virtustream µVM™ technology, which delivers enterprise security and compliance, multi-tenant efficiency, consumption-based pricing and performance SLAs for both legacy and web-scale applications. xStream works with existing enterprise hardware and virtualization to deliver enterprise-class clouds.xStream is the first true enterprise hybrid cloud solution—secure and compliant whether private or public. Enterprises need to run a complex IT environment that supports multiple applications, with a broad mix of hardware and software. xStream provides a hybrid cloud solution—private, public or mixed—which enables the enterprise to securely benefit from the cloud with multi-tenant efficiency, dynamic scale and on-demand delivery. Enterprises can now operate secure, compliant private clouds on-site and combine them with virtual private/public clouds in a hybrid solution for both legacy and web-scale applications. Applications running on an xStream cloud are supported by commercial application performance SLAs and consumption-based pricing, enabling mission-critical applications like ERP, CRM, databases, mail, web apps and thousands more to be moved to the cloud and outperform traditional operations. Your cloud solution is tailored with policies to run your applications in the configuration that fits your business. You can simply operate your own private cloud, you can combine it with virtual private/public clouds or you can use managed cloud services in any combination for the entire IT landscape, while delivering up to 25% more efficiency added to existing virtualization.The cloud brings significant benefits to IT: making it more dynamic and allowing it to operate on-demand and at multi-tenant economies of scale. Cloud resources are securely shared—available dynamically and on-demand. But without a solution like xStream, shared resources in private and public clouds cannot deliver reliable application performance. xStream was built from the ground up to be enterprise-class, using Virtustream μVM™ technology to achieve the reliability and assured high performance of a dedicated private cloud combined with the flexibility, scalability and economic benefits of the public multi-tenant cloud. xStream enables you to run the most complex, mission-critical legacy applications from SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and thousands more with full cloud benefits, but without rewriting your applications. The μVM™ Unit of Measure ã Compute: 200 MHz of CPU ã Memory: 768 MB ã Storage: 40 Input/output operations per second (IOPS) ã Network: 2 Mbps xStream with Virtustream µVM™ Technology Virtustream’s μVM™ is a fundamental cloud unit of measure comprised of compute, memory, network and storage. Using a μVM™ as an analytical building block, the optimal configuration of cloud resources needed to support any application (legacy or web-scale) can be identified and delivered. ã Delivers economic benefits of the cloud along with the reliability of dedicated resources. ã Dynamically tailors resources to meet application needs. Each application is assessed for resource needs and the optimal set of µVMs is combined to deliver mission-critical performance, all backed by an SLA. As applications execute, xStream ensures that each application has the resources it needs. ã Offers a true consumption-based pricing model in which customers pay only for what they actually use (in 5-minute increments), not for compute, memory, storage or network capacity that is not used (virtual machines are typically idle 30% of the time). ã Works with a heterogeneous collection of existing hardware and software so that companies can use existing hypervisors, compute, storage and networking resources and still benefit from an enterprise cloud. ã Designed for a wide range of enterprise applications—working with all leading hypervisors: VMware ESX, IBM PowerVM, Xen, KVM hypervisors and more). xStream also supports a mixed environment, letting the enterprise mix and match hypervisors for flexible cost/licensing options by application. ã Integrates backup, data replication and disaster recovery as selected by the enterprise. ã Architected to the highest security and compliance standards and can significantly contribute and be an enabler in achieving and maintaining SSAE16, ISAE3402, PCI-DSS 2.0, FISMA, IS0 27001-2005, ISO 9001-2008, HIPAA/HITEC and other certifications and compliance frameworks in a customer's own environment, when coupled with appropriate operational and management controls. ã Built to be managed from a single pane of glass. xStream-based clouds running in multiple locations (private, virtual private and public) can all be monitored and managed from a single console that provides a unified view.

For the first time, enterprises can be assured that application performance in the cloud meets or exceeds dedicated hardware performance—enabling mission-critical applications to be moved to the cloud, whether legacy or web-scale. Hybrid cloud connections including the communication, transfer of data and migration of workloads between private, virtual private and public clouds is automated, allowing backup and disaster recovery, cloud-bursting and test/ development to be delivered primarily by setting policies versus manual configuration.Policies that reflect your business priorities help to prevent applications from contending for resources. If sub-second response time is the critical performance factor of an application, resource pools can be designed to help assure that performance level. xStream Components for Application Performance SLAs: ã Integrated monitoring and alerts —hypervisor and application. Monitors the four μVM™ constituents while supporting integration with third-party monitoring tools such as Nimsoft and Nagios to deliver app-level metrics. ã IOPS and storage performance.  Synchronizes and maximizes expected application and storage performance using a unique optimization technique. ã Bursting.  Uses app-specific configuration to burst to available capacity. Bursting can involve adding memory, restarting instances in different locations or adding application instances.
