CSC Introduces First On-premise Private Cloud Billed as a Service
Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), which provides consulting and IT services to industry and government introduced .CSC BizCloud™, the only on-premise private cloud billed as a service currently available, the
company said. The main advantage offered by the new cloud solution is its ability to combine the privacy, security and control of a private cloud with the agility, convenience and commercial model of a public cloud. Thus, organizations that are security-sensitive will be able to adopt Cloud Computing solutions.
“BizCloud and CloudCompute provide the centerpiece of the modern virtualized datacenter. There is a model for every organization – whether you want self-managed or a managed service option, or you want private, public or a hybrid cloud, CSC is following through on our promise of delivering the right cloud, the right way. Until now, organizations have told us they were stalled by having to choose between the economic advantages of the public cloud and the security, control and performance offered by the private cloud. We have been listening, and now we are acting with BizCloud and CloudCompute. With CSC, every organization can easily make the initial move to ‘as a service’ – infrastructure, platform and software on-demand,”
Siki Giunta, vice president of Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC, said in a press release.
The company uses the Vblock™ Infrastructure Platform from VCE to build its CloudCompute infrastructure. BizCloud shares the same infrastructure as the CSC public and off-premise private cloud models, enabling organizations to move workloads to the right cloud model based on the security and control those workloads require.
CSC is to offer CloudCompute in three packages: Standard, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus that will be rolled out in stages all over the world.
The company’s shares broke a new resistance level of USD 54.06 per share and closed at USD 54.60 on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Obviously, the company’s stock will be supported by the news and many market analysts expect SCS’s stocks to continue their upward trend.
CSC reported revenue worth USD 16.1 billion for the 12 months ended October 1, 2010.
