Manageable, Secure & Interoperable--CSC has the power of "v"
(Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- CSC announced at VMworld 2011 that its CSC CloudCompute and CSC BizCloud offerings are now recognized by VMware as fully compliant with its standards for optimizing VMware vCloud Datacenter Services, and that CSC has demonstrated leadership in utilizing the program's suite of products for optimal cloud management.
CSC said it first announced that it joined the VMware vCloud Datacenter Services program in February of 2011 at VMware Partner Exchange 2011.
CSC CloudCompute is the company's Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering built on cloud fabric, Vblock from VCE, and delivered from CSC Trusted Cloud Datacenters. CSC BizCloud is the private cloud, billed as-a-service from a standard rate card and ready for workloads in 10 weeks.
Both offerings leverage the VMware vCloud Datacenter Services platform to provide clients a differentiated set of capabilities. This includes a consistent service catalog and interface across all cloud models (public, private and hybrid) enabling rapid provisioning of cloud capacity and services.
- Manageability - The CSC Cloud is simple to use because it employs VMware vCloud Datacenter Services objects, enabling users to intelligently organize cloud services and applications.
- Secure Multi-Tenancy - CSC provides cloud users with the ability to leverage a packaged, configurable, role-based security model. Users, Groups, Departments and Administrators are set up in minutes and define the necessary permissions to perform basic operations like provisioning, modification, installing new applications or decommissioning.
- Cloud Interoperability - Employs cross-cloud standards and open APIs that facilitate efficient hybrid-cloud connections and rapid workload migration from one cloud to the next. This integration is streamlined, occurs in minutes without the need to rewrite the applications.
"VMware and CSC continue to push the envelope of what capabilities organizations can realize through cloud computing, and their early success with the vCloud Datacenter program is an encouraging sign for organizations that want to move to a hybrid cloud as their IT strategy evolves," said IDC analyst Gary Chen.
"CSC has standardized on the VMware vCloud Datacenter Services platform because we are confident it will accelerate delivery on our promise to the market - a simple to use and easy to manage industrialized cloud for the enterprise," said Siki Giunta, VP, Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC.
"The enterprise market expects an industrialized cloud that enables quick adoption of new business models, provides service management on steroids, and enables a dynamic flow of workloads from private to public to hybrid clouds. Organizations want the economic benefits of standardization and are ready for a new era of licensing in the IT-as-a-service economy. The VMware vCloud Datacenter Services platform enables CSC to lead the way on both fronts." CSC is a global provider of technology-enabled business solutions and services.
