Virtustream, an enterprise-class cloud company and a Dell Technologies
business, today announced Virtustream xStreamCare, an expansion
of its comprehensive suite of professional and managed services for
customers looking to migrate applications to any cloud. The suite of
services for mission-critical workloads builds on Virtustream’s
decade-long experience, automation, end-to-end processes, and deep
technical expertise in migrating and managing the most complex
enterprise-class workloads in the cloud.

Virtustream’s xStreamCare services have long set the industry high mark
for handling complex IT landscapes as a core component of the Virtustream
Enterprise Cloud
. Enterprise customers value the comprehensive
approach for the planning, migration and management of mission-critical
workloads in the cloud. “We’ve managed thousands of the most complex
migrations for some of the largest companies on the planet,” said Rob
Scott, vice president, Professional and Managed Services, Virtustream.
“Our single-hand-to-shake approach is unique, as is the deep expertise
our xStreamCare services teams bring to our customers. It’s hard to
match our experience and expertise in mission-critical workloads.”

The company has extended its best practices with new deployment
automation capabilities to remove the barriers between clouds resulting
in more efficient, modernized and secure operations of future
multi-cloud environments. The company will now look to extend those
capabilities through a platform-agnostic approach and expand the scope
of its services to span multiple clouds.

Virtustream offers support for each stage of a customer’s journey to the
cloud, with a broad set of expert professional and managed services.

  • Planning – spanning advisory, architecture, security and
    compliance, performance optimization, backup and disaster recovery,
    pre-migration code optimization, data analysis and archiving.
  • Migration – spanning dedicated transition and project managers,
    globally-staffed teams, multi-platform migration services,
    steady-state stabilization and validation, and customer-specific
    migration strategies, processes and technology solutions for a
    tailored, complete journey to the cloud – not a one-size-fits-all
  • Integration fully integrated operational processes,
    including planned and tested disaster recovery, dedicated cloud
    delivery account managers, 24X7 global enterprise-class support
    services, and integrated service ticketing system to make workflows

    host-based intrusion detection system and firewall.

Virtustream’s xStreamCare services offer highly-automated, scalable and
differentiated services for enterprise customers as they move toward a
multi-cloud future. Recent research
from Forrester Consulting found that 97 percent of organizations have
adopted multi-cloud strategies for their mission-critical applications.
The study also found nearly 90 percent of organizations predict they’ll
maintain or increase their investments and staffing for multi-cloud
deployments over the next two years, and, specifically, 88 percent will
maintain or increase investments in managed services support.

“With the market’s continuing evolution to multi-cloud, IT decision
makers are either hiring or turning to companies with deep expertise in
end-to-end migration planning and services as well as deep expertise in
automated, secure, highly scalable and high-performance cloud services
for their mission-critical enterprise applications,” said Joy Corso,
chief marketing officer, Virtustream, in response to the study’s
findings. “This is among the areas where Virtustream excels.”
