AT&T Announces New Cloud Capabilities

AT&T Announces New Cloud Capabilities

Communications giant AT&T is launching new cloud capabilities, new mobile applications for the cloud and increases third-party development and industry activity, the company said in a press release. The communications holding will continue its partnership with other leading companies in the cloud such as IBM and Vmware, the company added.

New features include an enhanced computing offer allowing customers to tie their cloud computing systems to AT&T’s network in an easier manner. The company’s enhanced storage offer includes features that help companies meet corporate governance and compliance requirements.

The company also releases a new mobile application offering extended cloud capabilities to users on the go who need to store and access content remotely in a highly-secure manner.

Cloud computing vendors and third party developers will be able to assemble capabilities based on the company’s networking technologies. Thus, business customers will be able to derive more benefits from AT&T cloud solutions.

The company also announced it participates in a working group with the Cloud Security Alliance to define cloud-based security-as-a-service offers.

With cloud-based solutions powered by AT&T’s global network, we can enable companies to become more efficient, more mobile, and more nimble while helping to control their costs,” John Stankey, President and CEO, AT&T Business Solutions, said in the press release.

Additionally, AT&T announced that IBM technology is being used in its new release of AT&T Synaptic Compute as a Service(SM). “We believe business caliber clouds need to run on a robust virtual private network and we see AT&T as offering one of the best business class VPN services,” Scott Stainken, general manager, IBM global telecommunications industry, commented in a press release.

Enhancements to AT&T Synaptic Compute as a Service solution include integration with AT&T’s VPN Service to enable virtual private clouds. Other features include an expanded number of operating system templates, improvements to firewall policies to meet special security requirements, and new self-service and self-provisioning capabilities.

The company also introduced new enhancements to its Synaptic Storage as a Service including long term data retention options to help meet corporate governance or compliance requirements and new data management and compression capabilities.

The new mobile application will allows users to reliably move data to and from AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service using mobile devices. Mobile access to business information stored in the cloud such as documents or reference material which may be needed while on the go is implemented in the new application.

Third-party developers and vendors are allowed to assemble capabilities that can help business customers more easily, flexibly and more efficiently transport data to/from AT&T-based cloud solutions. Companies that participate in AT&T’s program include vendors like Cirtas, CommVault, Dolphin, EMC, Gladinet, Metalogix, Nasuni, Riverbed Technology, Seven10, StorSimple, and TwinStrata.

The company joined a working group with the Cloud Security Alliance to develop industry-wide definitions and categories of service for cloud-based Security-as-a-Service offers, AT&T said.

Although the company is considered a blue chip company its shares experienced significant fluctuations since the start of 2011. Recently, the company stock prices on the NYSE are going up and market analysts forecast even further growth based on new offerings and introduction of new technology solutions.
