Cloud Computing: Virtustream Gets Plum Cloud Job

Virtustream has snared a handsome contract to move Veyance Technologies’ complex global SAP environment to its xStream cloud platform where it will run in production.
Veyance, in case you don’t know, is the exclusive manufacturer and marketer of Goodyear engineered products worldwide and its SAP environment serves over 3,000 users.
Its legacy SAP R/3, SAP XI, TREX, Netweaver, ITS and WAS systems were previously deployed on physical hardware in a traditional outsourcing arrangement. It decided to move to the cloud to enable an extensive global data center and server consolidation initiative, which will cut its IT costs, and to let it scale dynamically as future expansion needs.
Veyance will still manage the multi-tenant environment with a single panel of glass.
Its requirements reportedly included true consumption-based pricing, guaranteed compute resources, data protection and industry-leading SLAs. The xStream platform will also provide comprehensive disaster recovery and data protection.
