Infotech Lead America: CSC has launched CSC BizCloud VPE (Virtual Private Edition), a private cloud, for enterprises.
CSC claims that enterprises will have an easy path to securely hosting applications in the cloud. The hosted private cloud provides dedicated compute, private network access and logically segregated storage deployed from 13 CSC Cloud Datacenters on four continents.
BizCloud VPE combines a converged infrastructure with security, network, resource and service management. BizCloud VPE enhances control, security and management of the cloud.
“Larger commercial and government organizations have been choosing BizCloud and BizCloud for Government, which are dedicated private clouds on the customer’s premises and ready for workloads in 10 weeks, to eliminate long lead times for implementation and the need to budget for capital investments,” said Siki Giunta, vice president of Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC.
“Now, BizCloud VPE gives any enterprise the ability to choose private cloud to satisfy workload security and compliance requirements at an entry-level price point that is perfect for a single initial workload. This offering will further CSC’s mission to be the leader in providing secure enterprise workloads in the cloud,” Giunta added.
CSC says BizCloud VPE improves agility by scaling on demand and expanding and contracting resources as needed.
It is designed to mitigate investment risk and improves ROI for new business solutions. The private cloud solution focuses IT resources on business value versus ongoing operations.
“CSC continues to leverage VMware vCloud Director to provide more cloud models that closely align to enterprise requirements. CSC BizCloud VPE, a VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, addresses the workload-driven need for a hosted private cloud at an affordable price point. VMware customers will benefit from BizCloud VPE as an essential component of building hybrid clouds,” said Dan Chu, vice president, Cloud Infrastructure and Services, VMware.
