DAILYHOSTNEWS, October 21, 2011 – Virtustream has announced that it will open an office in San Francisco. The new space is in response to increased interest in the company and its offerings from potential customers and partners. The new San Francisco office will be located at 455 Market Street and move in is expected in early November.
Virtustream owns and operates its own data centers in the U.S. and U.K., and has offices in Washington, D.C., New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, London, Dublin and the Channel Islands.
The company provides ongoing support for its Cloud Platform Services through two groups: its Cloud Cover team provides a managed service, from core infrastructure through enterprise applications and the Cloud Staging and Networks group that provides colocation, security and network services.
The San Francisco office will headquarter the company’s Cloud Advisory Services unit. This unit offers cloud analysis, design and migration strategies for complex enterprise IT landscapes. The Cloud Advisory Services unit deploys Virtustream’s Advisor, a software tool that provides fact-based analysis of a company’s current IT environment and delivers specific recommendations based upon its proprietary algorithms.
In his statement, Michael Hoch, leader of the Cloud Advisory Services unit said: “Virtustream’s Cloud Advisory Services are unique in the industry and result in tailored cloud computing designs that meet the most demanding enterprise needs while recommending precise resource configurations. We can provide these designs without bias as we are technology vendor agnostic.”
The new office will also house a part of the company’s product development team working on next generation releases of xStream, the company’s enterprise cloud platform. By creating SLA-based resource pools normalized to containers of virtual compute referred to as Infrastructure Units, Virtustream xStream offers compelling guarantees of CPU, memory, network and storage I/O resources. xStream supports on-premise, off-premise or hybrid cloud deployments as customer needs warrant.
