Virtustream, a cloud software and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, has announced its partnership with Universo Online (UOL), an online content company in Brazil, to deliver cloud solutions to the country's growing market.
UOL selected Virtustream's xStream cloud management software to offer secure, high-performance cloud solutions geared towards enterprise clients. UOL will also incorporate xStream into its current public cloud solution with the aim of optimising its resources through the consolidation of its cloud platform and infrastructure.
Gil Torquato, chief executive officer of UOL Diveo highlights the benefits of the partnership: "The demand for enterprise-grade cloud solutions is continuing to grow rapidly in Brazil, and we recognised the opportunity to expand on our existing UOL Cloud Infrastructure".
Using xStream will allow UOL to migrate its customers' mission-critical applications to the cloud, while providing application performance SLAs, multi-tenant efficiency, and a consumption-based pricing model for both legacy (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.) and modern web-scale applications.
Virtustream will also provide advisory services for UOL. By leveraging Virtustream's expertise in cloud deployments, UOL will be able to rapidly deploy their business model and a go-to-market strategy for the enterprise market.
Rodney Rogers, chairman and chief executive officer at Virtustream said: "We are very pleased to support UOL's entry into the enterprise class cloud market. As Brazilian enterprises increasingly focus on gaining efficiencies and reducing costs through cloud solutions, this partnership will provide them with the efficiencies they seek and the enterprise grade security and performance they need, all delivered by a provider they already know and trust."
