CSC Positioned in “Leaders” Quadrant of Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service Report
News Release -- January 05, 2012
FALLS CHURCH, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of the new Gartner report, “Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service.” The report, published on December 8, 2011, reviewed 20 providers of public cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), looking at their vision and their ability to execute these services.
According to Gartner, “The common use cases for public cloud compute IaaS are: development and testing environments; high-performance computing and batch processing; Internet-facing websites and Web-based applications (which may or may not have architectures specifically designed for the cloud); and nonmission-critical internal business applications.”
“Cloud Computing is a strategic growth business for CSC,” explained Siki Giunta, vice president, Cloud Computing & Software Services, CSC. “Our public infrastructure is consistent around the world. In this report Gartner evaluates our vision which we think is unique. CSC believes that in the near future the lines will blur between public and private cloud so we’re building a public cloud that will enable the hybrid enterprise cloud now and in future years. All of our cloud customers will benefit from CSC’s consistent architecture and rate card across all cloud models. Gartner’s recognition is appreciated and valued by everyone at CSC.”
The report was authored by Lydia Leong and Ted Chamberlin.
