With the 2.0 release of its xStream enterprise-class cloud software, Virtustream is seeking to answer the needs of customers moving legacy and web-scale applications to the cloud and give them multiple choices: public, private or hybrid clouds.

xStream 2.0 is a “highly secure, high performance enterprise-class cloud solution” available as software, a stand-alone appliance or as a managed service, according to the company. It permits users to manage hybrid clouds with a selection of onsite private cloud, along with offsite public and virtual private clouds. Additionally, xStream 2.0 allow enterprises to run legacy and web-scale software in the cloud, gaining cloud benefits without having to rewrite or lose existing applications, the company noted.

“Enterprises run extremely complex IT environments that mix many legacy and web-scale applications. Until now, there have been no cloud solutions that gave customers the confidence to move both legacy and web-scale applications to the cloud,” said Rodney Rogers, chairman and CEO of Virtustream, in a prepared statement.

xStream is available for enterprises, governments and service providers and is run by “hundreds” of large business customers, according to Virtustream. It is powered by Virtustream µVM technology to provide enterprise-grade security and compliance, multitenant efficiency, application performance SLAs and consumption-based charging. xStream is available in three editions: Private Cloud, Public Cloud and Virtual Private Cloud.

In March Virtustream announced a $15 million Series B round of funding with participation from Columbia Capital, Intel Capital, Noro-Moseley Partners, TDF and QuestMark Partners. Virtustream planned to use the funds to develop its xStream software and build its customer base and geographic coverage, with a focus on China and Southeast Asia.
