Canopy Among First To Join Intel Cloud Technology Program

Transparency Vital To Removing Major Hurdle to Cloud Adoption

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Canopy, an Atos company powered by EMC and VMware, today announced support for the Intel Cloud Technology program. This program gives cloud buyers the transparency they need to select cloud services that best meet their requirements. Canopy offers a broad spectrum of dedicated and virtual private cloud solutions powered by Intel Cloud Technology to meet a wide variety of enterprise use cases.

As more and more organisations consider adopting cloud computing for their business critical applications, they are confronted by a myriad of cloud services from different providers. But without adequate transparency into these cloud services, the perceived risk of performance and security requirements not being met is unacceptable to many potential cloud buyers and becomes a major hurdle to their adoption of cloud computing.

As the European leader in enterprise and government cloud, Canopy is among the first to join the Intel Cloud Technology program and give cloud buyers better transparency into the technology, capabilities and standards underpinning its cloud services.

"At Canopy, we're focused on cutting through the fog surrounding cloud services by giving clear guidance to empower cloud buyers to select the best solution for their needs. We build cloud services on Intel Cloud Technology to meet the demanding performance and security requirements of large organizations we work with around the world," said Jacques Pommeraud, Chief Executive Officer of Canopy.

Canopy offers the broadest choice of dedicated and virtual private cloud solutions within the Intel Cloud Technology program, giving organisations the freedom to choose the level of dedication, management and hosting they need. Enterprise-class service levels and support further enhance these solutions from initial consulting and design, through to implementation and on-going operations.

"Canopy's participation in the Intel Cloud Technology program underscores their commitment to delivering customer value with the highest degree of transparency," said Jason Waxman, Vice President and General Manager, Intel Cloud Platform Group. "The program will support Canopy's enterprise service offerings which are differentiated for high performance and hardened security using Intel Xeon processors."
