CSC BizCloud - Powered by Hitachi Data Services
Accelerate the move to enterprise-class hybrid cloud with this integrated management platform.
CSC and Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) have made moving to an enterprise-grade private cloud easy with CSC BizCloudTM, powered by HDS. The BizCloud integrated solution with Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) accelerates and simplifies the transformation to IT as a Service.
CSC BizCloud enables rapid deployment of a flexible and scalable Infrastructure as a Service platform with built-in governance
and orchestration, including governance of Platform as a Service and Storage as a Service portfolios. It gives organizations a single, centralized management platform for multiple cloud environments and components — the ideal environment for hybrid cloud and DevOps transformation initiatives supporting mission-critical applications.
This fully integrated solution combines CSC’s knowledge and expertise in implementing and managing large-scale enterprise hybrid cloud environments with Hitachi Data Systems’ UCP, an advanced next-generation converged solution for IT and cloud infrastructure. Featuring pre-assembled hardware and pre-validated software, along with the native integration of all Hitachi and CSC system elements, CSC BizCloud delivers unmatched features, price and performance for supporting applications and meeting service level agreements.
ENTERPRISE-GRADE CLOUD MANAGEMENT
At the heart of CSC BizCloud is CSC Agility PlatformTM, an enterprise-grade cloud management solution that runs inside the service management platform (Hitachi UCP for VMware vSphere with Hitachi UCP Director software).
Considered the industry’s only enterprise-grade policy engine able to support hybrid cloud management and governance, CSC Agility Platform features flexible policy creation and enforcement capabilities that eliminate manual approvals. It enables application and infrastructure-level policy control from initial development through production deployment and beyond. By automating complex tasks, CSC Agility Platform helps IT organizations rapidly respond to requests and ensure predictable, repeatable results, along with high resource utilization.
UCP Director software to integrate compute, network and storage into a single management and control solution. UCP Director is designed to accelerate the routine tasks associated with system build and management. CSC Agility Platform leverages the power of UCP Director and extends these capabilities directly to cloud users through a self-service interface inside VMware vSphere.
OPTIMIZING APPLICATIONS AND STORAGE
CSC BizCloud also enables the integration of bare-metal hardware. This makes it possible for organizations to accommodate applications that have not been optimized for a virtualized platform and to accelerate the migration of applications that require a non-virtualized approach. This template-based approach helps organizations completely install applications from the infrastructure up.
The solution also addresses software costs. Logical partition and bare-metal segregation can drive a more cost- effective software licensing model for a variety of application environments such as Oracle and SAP.
