Alliance Formed To Develop New Cloud Computing Solutions

Alliance formed to develop new Cloud Computing solutions

A strategic new alliance formed by Harris, EMC and the Virtual Computing Environment Company (VCE), will result in the joint development and marketing of new trusted multi-tenant cloud solutions.
The trio will work towards creating solutions that will drive more commercial and government enterprises to adopt cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) applications.

Multi-tenant cloud solutions can optimize resource sharing as well as provide high levels of isolation to the tenants and quality of service throughout a shared environment.

Synergy of these three companies will maximize the benefits of multi-tenant cloud solutions. Together, they will be able to boost confidence of users that the underlying infrastructure leveraged by them has enhanced security and is operating to the specified level of assurance and compliance.

For this project, the patented Harris trust enablement technologies will be integrated with the Vblock Infrastructure Platforms. This integration will deliver new levels of visibility into the security, performance and availability state of cloud environments hosted by Harris.

Also, a combination of Harris’ technology and RSA’s expertise and customized solutions will deliver customers high visibility and consolidated control into virtual and cloud infrastructures.

Cloud computing can change the fundamental nature of enterprise operations enabling growth, improving effectiveness, and reducing costs,” said Dale W. Meyerrose, vice president and general manager of Harris Cyber Integrated Solutions. “Combining the technology and expertise of Harris, RSA, and VCE will produce a next-generation cloud solution based on trusted multi-tenancy and drive the adoption of today’s enterprise cloud solutions.

“The core inhibitors to cloud adoption are concerns over secure multi-tenancy.  Organizations require assurances that shared resources don’t mean shared data,” said Bret Harman, chief technology officer, RSA, The Security Division of EMC.  “Through the combination of Harris’ enablement technology and RSA’s expertise and solutions such as the recently announced RSA Cloud Trust Authority, we intend to introduce new levels of trust and control in the cloud enabling commercial and government enterprises to realize the inherent benefits of the cloud.”
