What are Virtual Machines?
Virtual machine is the technical term for any computer or computer process which can be emulated on another computer’s hardware, a virtualised computer. When combined with a high speed network connection, this virtual computer can be quickly accessed by other computers on the same network. This ability to access this computing power across a network is the basis for cloud computing.
What is vNebula?
vNebula is a new virtual machine portal from Stream Networks allowing users to create, customise and deploy virtual machines from Stream’s cloud.

The design philosophy behind the portal
The vNebula portal has been designed to be simple to set up and easy to use. At Stream, we wanted to break from the trend of endless configuration pages and overwhelming options offered by the current cloud computing market.
Stream wanted a product which could be used to create and manage hosted PBXs, hosted desktops and billing systems, all from one place. Powered by vSphere technology, we’ve created an accessible portal which fulfils these aims.
What can it run?
Using Bitnami’s app stack, Hosted PBX technology, and Window’s SPLA licensing, the portal allows users to deploy over 150 market leading developer tools, hosted PBXs, Microsoft packages and operating systems. (Packages offered include Microsoft Exchange, Sharepoint, and SQL Server)
What’s the tech behind it?
All of the vNebula machines run from Stream’s n+1 servers, securely co-located throughout the UK. Each cluster is designed to provide 100% uptime, and comprises the latest in replicated storage arrays, network capacity, and processing power, all built using VMware’s HA Hypervisor.
