EarthLink To Offer More Cloud Services

EarthLink will expand its IT services offerings by deploying Virtustream’s xStream enterprise cloud software solution.

xStream will help EarthLink offer SMB customers an expanded set of enterprise-class cloud services for applications that require security, pricing and application performance SLAs, complex network routing, compliance, resource pooling and business continuity, Bethesda, Md.-based Virtustream said. These new services, which EarthLink will launch in the coming months, will enable customers to optimize their cloud spend by only paying for what they use.

With the xStream cloud software deployed as part of our next-generation cloud architecture, we will more efficiently serve our clients in the SMB market,” said Mike Toplisek, executive vice president of sales and marketing for EarthLink. We can bring additional economies of both scale and skills to our small and mid-sized clients, a privilege once afforded by large enterprises only. Our broader set of managed cloud services will continue to reduce customer need for dedicated IT hardware, software and or even personnel to support new applications.”

EarthLink is already running Virtustream’s xStream at its Rochester, N.Y. data center. EarthLink is bringing new cloud centers online in Dallas; Chicago; San Jose, Calif.; and Miami in the first half of 2013 and will deploy xStream in those centers as well.
