Remove barriers to innovation and improve productivity with on-demand cloud computing services
You already know the benefits of the cloud. Now it’s all about actually taking that step. Choosing which systems integrator is going to realise the opportunities that cloud computing represents. Who can best transform technology into business value – efficiently and at no risk?
Here are three good reasons to choose CSC and our model of IT service delivery: CSC Trusted Cloud.
- Because we take a business first approach
We don’t cast you straight out into the cloud. Quite the opposite. First of all we analyse the situation, primarily with reference to how our technology can benefit your business. CSC Trusted Cloud includes several consultancy solutions in which you yourself study the analysis and see how your business can best benefit from the cloud.
- Because we prioritise security
What about security? That’s probably the most frequently asked question we hear regarding cloud computing. Not surprising, bearing in mind the fact that many of our customer are among the world’s most security-conscious enterprises (from Google to NASA). Which is why access control, data integrity, logical security and physical security are four cornerstones of CSC Trusted Cloud, public and private cloud services alike.
- Because we are technology independent
We are the only cloud provider that doesn’t make you dependent on one particular technical platform. This means that you get custom applications with more functionality, greater agility and lower costs. And faster time to market. In our Platform as a Service (PaaS) services we support the Azure, Force.com and SpringSource, each of them offering unique capabilities suited to different development languages.
CSC CloudCompute is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering on a market-leading cloud fabric, Vblock. It is secure enough for business critical applications and has service level agreements aligned to the workloads. It is available as a dedicated or shared service, all billed on a per-use utility basis.
CSC BizCloud is a private cloud, billed as a service from a standard rate card and ready for service in just ten weeks. CSC BizCloud provides all the security and exclusivity of a private cloud with the economic advantages and convenience of a public leveraged model. CSC BizCloud uses the same structure as CSC CloudCompute, but dedicated to you.
CSC SmartStart is a hands on proof of concept program that lets you use the cloud from our data centers so you can see for yourself how you’d live with it. CSC SmartStart lets you validate your views on Cloud, while minimizing risk and avoiding up-front capital expense. We’ll work with you to review concepts, identify key proof points and identify tasks, applications or workloads for your experience.
CSC Cloud Lab provides on demand web-based access to virtual machines, so you can create a virtual test and development environment quickly and easily. CSC CloudLab is an alternative to the time and cost involved in setting up traditional or virtual test labs, as it is available on demand, and billed as a service so you only pay for what you use.
CSC ACE Factory accelerates the migration of applications to the cloud by restructuring them to work effectively in the cloud. CSC uses best of breed technologies from VMware and VCE along with our own standard processes to quicken and streamline application migration. If you need to move to the cloud, but don’t have time or budget to recreate your applications, CSC ACE Factory is the solution.
