(This is the concluding part of a two-part article.  For Part 1, please see: Recent Cloud Computing Team Ups)

In the first part, I wrote about one recent team-up in the cloud computing space – Red Hat and SAIC. Here are two more.

Piston Cloud Computing and Securisea 

Piston Cloud Computing, specializing in open-source cloud platform OpenStack, announced a technology partnership with Securisea, a leading Internet security consultancy specializing in cloud security and compliance. As per the terms of the agreement, Piston’s customers will have access to Securisea’s consulting and implementation services. With security being a concern for most businesses moving into the cloud, this partnership can help both the companies as well as customers.“We wanted to partner with a firm that not only brings proven security expertise and client service, but also understands the needs of private cloud computing environments. Securisea was a natural choice based on vertical industry expertise, depth and breadth, as well as an understanding of complex security and compliance regulations that are top of mind for enterprises today,” said Joshua McKenty, founder and CEO of Piston Cloud Computing, Inc.

We are excited to work with the team at Piston Cloud, and committed to ensuring pentOS users have the best options available to them for security and compliance in the cloud,” said Josh Daymont, founder and CEO of Securisea, Inc.

Atos and Ufida

France-based information technology giant Atos S.A. announced the formation of a joint venture (JV) with China-based Ufida, a leader in management software solutions in Asia-Pacific. The JV called Yunanotm (meaning “cloud” and “safe”) will target the growing market for cloud services in Asia-Pacific, including financial systems, ERP management software and IT consultation. Initially, the focus will be on medium-size organizations, in particular subsidiaries of large groups, or emerging country enterprises that are in need of a scalable, first-class offering at a competitive price. The JV, in which Atos and Ufida hold 70% and 30% stakes respectively, will be headquartered at Bezons in Paris, near Atos’ headquarters.

Creating this joint venture is an important step in our strategy to further grow our market share in cloud services in Europe and our business in China that are set to accelerate sharply in 2012. Ufida is the leading software company in China with more than 200 branches, 12,000 employees and more than 1.2 million customers and an excellent credibility in the marketplace. Our combined forces will accelerate our innovative offering of cloud computing and IT services to serve customers globally benefiting at the same time from Ufida recognized Software capabilities and from Atos footprint and proven Cloud capabilities. I am proud of this partnership which also strengthens our Asian development strategy,” said Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO of Atos.

Atos is not only one of the world’s best-known IT services providers, but also the worldwide IT partner for the Olympic Games. Through our joint venture, Ufida can achieve its strategic goal of globalization and access to EMEA markets rapidly, and can meet the new demands and features of globalization of cloud computing to build up innovative cloud management and IT information services,” said Wang Wenjing, Chairman and CEO of Ufida.
