8x8 et SoftBank s'associent pour offrir des services de données cloud virtualisés

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ : EGHT), un prestataire de solutions informatiques et de communications d'entreprise cloud, et SoftBank Telecom Corp. (ci-après SoftBank) ont annoncé aujourd'hui la signature d'un accord qui permettra à SoftBank d'obtenir le logiciel d'entreprise cloud par abonnement « Zerigo » de 8x8 sous licence.

Aux termes de cet accord, 8x8 va octroyer son logiciel Zerigo sous licence et développer un logiciel connexe supplémentaire permettant à Softbank de fournir des services d'interface de bureau virtuel (IBV) à ses clients du Japon et du monde entier. La combinaison du logiciel Zerigo et du nouveau logiciel IBV permettra à SoftBank d'offrir une suite complète de services cloud virtualisés à ses principales entreprises clientes en utilisant les produits Vblock de VCE, un leader en systèmes d'infrastructure cloud convergents.

Initialement, SoftBank va déployer ces services au Japon, mais envisage d'étendre rapidement leur déploiement dans le reste de l'Asie ainsi qu'en Europe, aux États-Unis et sur d'autres marchés clés dans le monde. SoftBank compte certaines des plus grandes entreprises au monde parmi ses clients pour ses services primés et envisage de commercialiser ces nouveaux services virtualisés innovants à ces mêmes clients. Cet accord procure à 8x8 des honoraires de développement et d'installation ainsi que des droits de licence continus dans le cadre d'un contrat initial de 36 mois.

« 8x8 se réjouit de s'associer à SoftBank pour offrir ces services de valeur à ses entreprises clientes », a déclaré le président et PDG de 8x8, Bryan Martin. « SoftBank est l'un des prestataires de services de télécommunications les plus souples et les plus performants au monde et la vitesse à laquelle la société progresse reflète la culture de 8x8 qui est de toujours mener plutôt que de suivre le marché ».

« SoftBank a sélectionné 8x8 après une recherche extensive de fournisseurs de logiciel répondant à l'engagement sans équivoque de 8x8 envers la qualité, l'évolutivité, la fiabilité et compétitivité des coûts », a déclaré Ken Miyauchi, directeur du conseil d'administration de SoftBank Telecom Corp. « SoftBank se réjouit de s'associer à une société aussi agile de Silicon Valley dont la culture reflète la nôtre et dont l'expérience en livraison de services cloud sera inestimable pour nous aider à accélérer le déploiement de services similaires au Japon. Nous nous attendons à ce que nos clients soient enchantés de ces nouvelles offres et nous sommes impatients d'étendre les marchés disponibles dans un proche avenir ».

There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
