Enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies business Virtustream has announced an upgrade to Virtustream Enterprise Cloud that includes cloud automation and security enhancements, which give enterprises the ability to automate key tasks while maintaining security levels – a multi-part process that previously required manual oversight.
This technology builds on Virtustream’s offerings in delivering scalable, secure cloud services for mission-critical enterprise applications.
The update also features a new version of the xStream cloud management software platform including an improved architecture and application programming interface (API), in addition to the ability to address many of the specific challenges presented when migrating and managing enterprise applications in the cloud.
Virtustream product and technology senior vice president Deepak Patil says, “Enterprise applications and workloads require special handling and care.”
“Historically, enterprise cloud customers had constraints that precluded them from flexibility and conveniences— such as quick provisioning—that are leveraged by cloud consumers with less complex use cases,” Patil adds.
“This was primarily due to concerns about security, backups, monitoring and other issues. Virtustream’s new features simplify and automate the most complex actions delivering immediate value to customers.”
This update extends automation deeper into previously manual cloud migration and management processes without compromising security or requiring onerous coordination of related operations.
The new Virtustream Enterprise Cloud enhancements include the following capabilities:
“Enterprises no longer need to be held back by mission-critical workloads,” says Patil.
“There is a place to move them using new cloud operating models that compress processes and provide automation and efficiencies that clear space for new innovations, capabilities and businesses.”
