New Delhi, India (PressExposure) June 03, 2009 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced the next step in its company-wide commitment to cloud computing. Building on its enterprise systems integration, mission-critical security capabilities and global presence, CSC announced a family of cloud services that leverage the company's strengths with private clouds and combines them with new public cloud models.
Clients will benefit from these new cloud services in which CSC manages complete ecosystems of cloud service providers, including platform-as-a-service, infrastructure-as-a-service and software-as-a-service. Orchestration will help clients manage data, lower operational costs, and collaborate easily and effectively across public and private networks.
CSC's cloud services consist of a multi-tiered approach:
- Cloud Orchestration Services is a best-of-breed approach for cloud services integration that provides clients with service level management, remote monitoring, reporting, auditing and data transparency. CSC's Cloud Orchestration Services provide automated arrangement, coordination, federation, management, security and operation of private, public and hybrid cloud computing environments, supporting industry-specific compliance and auditing services.
- Trusted Cloud Services is a portfolio of industry-compliant desktop, computing, storage and network infrastructure services available on a just-in-time, on-demand basis with full security features and stringent service-level criteria.
- World Class Consulting Capabilities will allow enterprise information technology clients and independent software vendors to take advantage of improved business models enabled by private, public and hybrid cloud capabilities.
In addition, the company will build a cloud computing delivery capacity through its Global Business Consulting and Solutions Practice, led by Lem Lasher, President of CSC's Global Business Solutions and Chief Innovation Officer. He leads the company's Leading Edge Forum, an independent research group that drives innovative thinking around information technology, including cloud computing.
"CSC has decades of experience managing 'private cloud' enterprise computing environments on a global scale," said Brian Boruff, Vice President of CSC's Cloud Computing. "Extending these skills to integrate and manage public and private clouds is a natural step in the evolution of our business. Enterprises that need secure cloud operations will find that CSC offers 'the right mix' of private and public cloud experience and will effectively orchestrate risk."
Over the coming weeks and months, Trusted Cloud and Cloud Orchestration service offerings will be announced in conjunction with CSC alliance partners. Many of these offerings will be available later this summer and a series of more detailed announcements will follow.
