Kawasaki Chooses Virtustream to Build Dealer Network Application

By David Delony

Virtustream, a provider of cloud software and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), has announced that Kawasaki has chosen the company’s enterprise cloud management software, Xstream, to develop an application for its powered motorsports dealer network.

“xStream provides a highly effective combination of functionality and agility that will enable us to efficiently develop and test our software to keep up with the dynamic requirements of our portal solution,” said Victor Martinez, director of information technology for Kawasaki. “Virtustream has exceeded our expectations with their preparedness and responsiveness and, due to the success and immediate benefits that we have seen, we anticipate eventually moving other business applications to the cloud as well.”

Kawasaki chose Virtustream because the company could provide an easy-to-use, stable solution built for the enterprise with disaster recovery available. The two companies were able to quickly bring up the Xstream environment, even deploying the new application in multiple environments.

The new application is intended to provide a portal for Kawasaki’s dealers.

“Kawasaki’s decision to utilize our solution shows the versatility xStream offers,” said Scot Brenton, vice president of sales, West Coast U.S., Virtustream. “xStream greatly simplifies moving IT to the cloud and taking advantage of the increased efficiency of a cloud solution. We provide a secure and scalable environment with disaster recovery built in to ensure our users are protected both during and after their transition.”

Xstream lets customers deploy cloud applications quickly and reliably, allowing them to meet Service Level Agreements (SLA) for uptime. Customers are only charged for the resources they actually use in Virtustream’s µ-VM environment. This gives Kawasaki ample flexibility in how it can run its new application.

The San Francisco-based firm has recently opened offices in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Virtustream also has offices in Atlanta, Toronto and London.
