Virtustream, a privately held infrastructure services firm, today announced it has acquired two data centers from NaviSite as part of Virtustream’s data center growth strategy and support for itsxStream hybrid enterprise cloud platform.
Virtustream will continue to service existing customers with expanded data center services, and it will offer capacity within the San Francisco, Calif. and Vienna, Va. facilities to new customers, including those that deploy the xStream cloud platform. Details about the transaction can be found in a related announcement from NaviSite.
Unveiled earlier in March, xStream is the first enterprise cloud platform that delivers cost and resource savings through flexible internal (private) and external (off-premise) cloud environments-commonly referred to as hybrid cloud environments-through one centralized subscription-based deployment, with guaranteed resources, capacity on demand and industry leading SLAs. xStream provides virtual, elastic and externally managed resources for running applications, and it is based on Virtustream’s long track record of successful enterprise virtual IT deployments.
Virtustream not only incorporates higher levels of security than most clients’ own internal systems, but also addresses end user concerns about availability by building redundancy into xStream deployments-data is replicated in real-time in a second data center located in a separate geography. In the event of an issue, services switch to the second data center with minimal interruption.
