True consumption pricing

Enjoy a revolutionary consumption-based pricing model based on actual use of cloud resources. Our patented cloud resource allocation and management technology allows fine-grained measurement of compute, memory, network and storage consumption. This means you only pay for what you use, reducing inefficiencies and creating significant cost savings while eliminating virtualized overhead from unused or underutilized virtual machines.

Guaranteed application availability and performance

Virtustream Enterprise Cloud doesn’t just enable mission-critical enterprise applications like SAP to run in the cloud—it enables them to perform more efficiently than ever before. We back our cloud with service level agreements at the application performance layer rather than simple uptime guarantees—ensuring your critical business systems aren't just available, but performing at mission-required speeds.


Defense in depth

From the silicon layer up, we built the Virtustream platform with security top of mind. At every level, you'll find integrated security features, including CPU-level integrity checks that provide for geofencing of workloads, and encryption at rest, in use and in motion. At the same time, the Viewtrust risk and compliance management portal gives you a real-time, predictive picture of risk and compliance across your entire IT estate. With Virtustream, you can select comprehensive security services to match a given workload to the appropriate IT security infrastructure—so you’re always equipped to anticipate, prepare and respond.
