News Release -- October 12, 2010
First Offering in CSC Strategy for Multi-Platform Application Transformation to Enable Rapid Deployment of On-Demand Applications Via the Cloud
FALLS CHURCH, Va. and COPENHAGEN — Oct. 12 — Today at VMworld 2010 Europe, CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced that it will use VMware vFabric™, the runtime services optimized for Spring applications, as one of the platforms organizations will use to transform their applications for cloud deployment.
Supporting its business first approach, CSC is enabling the deployment of Spring applications to a dedicated VMware vFabric platform. By offering this service for Spring applications, CSC is offering customers an efficient and effective tool and processes for extracting value from their cloud decision. Using Spring and VMware vFabric simplifies transformation of complex applications, ensures application performance and availability, and ensures the agility and return on investment expected from moving to the CSC Trusted Cloud.
“The development community has chosen the Spring Framework for the development of Java applications due to the core tenets of productivity and application portability,” said Siki Giunta, vice president, Cloud Computing and Hosting Services, CSC. “As organizations move business processes to the cloud, they identify ideal workloads to transform, and we are giving them a simple, secure and managed infrastructure upon which to run those applications, on a platform that is optimized for Spring applications.”
In order to assist organizations with the transformation of their applications, CSC provides Cloud Application Assessments to support customers in their application consolidation, transformation, and migration to the CSC Trusted Cloud. This will be supported by a jointly developed methodology and toolset that will quantify the benefits of moving to the modern VMware vFabric platform at CSC.
“We are pleased to be working with CSC on this initiative,” said Rod Johnson, senior vice president and general manager, Application Platform Division, VMware. “Providing organizations with clear cloud destinations for their Spring applications will allow them to leverage the benefits of this modern approach to building and running Java applications, whether on-premise or in the CSC Trusted Cloud data centers.”
