CSC Joins VMware vCloud Datacenter Services

CloudCompute and CSC BizCloud as the New Hybrid and Private Cloud Services Based on VMware vCloud Datacenter Services

"One promise of cloud is making ‘as a service' the new reality for IT," said Siki Giunta, vice president, Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC. "Organizations should place emphasis on the services that support the business and mission - availability of a service, performance of the service, cost of the service - not the servers, the networks, and the storage. Our mutual customers will benefit from the combination of CSC's experience in onboarding, managed services and security, and VMware's continued innovation and leadership in virtualization and cloud technologies."

CSC and VMware on Monday announced that CSC will join the VMware vCloud Datacenter Services Program and will offer CloudCompute and CSC BizCloud as VMware vCloud Datacenter Services. CSC CloudCompute is the consistent Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in the CSC Trusted Cloud Datacenters and in the new CSC BizCloud - the private on premise cloud billed as a service from a standard rate card.

By offering VMware vCloud Datacenter Services, CSC is able to provide organizations of all sizes a path toward an operating environment that datacenters can scale out. Businesses can leverage internal and external IT resources when and where needed in an enterprise hybrid cloud. The service delivers:

  • Agility - Enable users to self-provision resources quickly and efficiently
  • Security - Depend on multi-level security and a comprehensive security framework compliant with the internal IT environment
  • Portability - Move applications to the hybrid cloud and back to internal virtual environment as and when needed

"The relationship between VMware and CSC will bring the full benefits of enterprise hybrid cloud computing and IT as a service to our customers," said Scott Aronson, vice president, global accounts and vCloud market development, VMware. "The new CSC hybrid and private cloud services based on our VMware vCloud Datacenter Services architecture will enable enterprises to improve efficiency and agility by leveraging internal and external resources in a fully compatible, compliant and flexible manner, developed and certified together by VMware and CSC."

BizCloud, a VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, is a private, on-premise cloud billed as-a-service and ready for workloads in 10 weeks. BizCloud is built upon the CSC IaaS layer called CloudCompute. BizCloud combines the privacy, security and control of a private cloud with the commercial model, agility and convenience of a public cloud. VMware software, including VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director, makes it possible for organizations to implement a hybrid cloud strategy by easily moving workloads between BizCloud and the off- premise, leveraged and dedicated clouds in the CSC Trusted Cloud Datacenters.

In addition, CSC is implementing the VMware vFabric platform for new Java application development and for the migration of customers' applications and databases to the cloud. This will help enable CSC to transition customers' legacy applications to a VMware vCloud-enabled environment and to quickly develop new SaaS-based applications for customers.
