SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA has contracted with cloud software and infrastructure provider Virtustream to deploy Virtustream’s xStream to develop and test software applications for its dealership portal, the tech company announced.

“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, 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.”

Virtustream offers a consumption-based pricing model that charges customers only for the resources used. KMC selected xStream to cost-effectively provide enterprise class stability, agility, ease-of-use and built-in disaster recovery. Kawasaki was able to install, test and deploy the new application in multiple environments and still meet business requirements and deadlines.
