CSC Expands VMware Partnership with Hybrid Cloud Brokering Solution
|By Business Wire

(NYSE:CSC), a global leader in next-generation IT services and
solutions, today announced the expansion of its partnership with VMware
with the addition of a hybrid cloud brokering solution for VMware
vCloud® Hybrid Service™, which is interoperable with CSC’s ServiceMesh
The solution will enable customers to develop and move workloads on any
combination of vCloud Hybrid Service, CSC BizCloud™,
and CSC CloudCompute™
as well as other commercial cloud offerings. CSC will also add to its
CloudCompute client offering by reselling VMware vCloud Hybrid
Service. Additionally, both companies will collaborate to train key
technical personnel in support of clients.
The CSC ServiceMesh Agility Platform
automates the deployment and management of enterprise applications and
platforms across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. The
ServiceMesh Agility Platform provides a single control point for
governance, compliance and security across a customer’s cloud
applications and environments, empowering the business with fully
governed, self-service access to applications, platforms, and services.
Since CSC’s BizCloud and CloudCompute offerings are certified vCloud
Datacenter Services, the addition of vCloud Hybrid Service enables
efficient migration of workloads between the CSC and VMware cloud
offerings, which are based on common cloud infrastructure.
“We welcome this opportunity to build on our partnership with VMware,”
said CSC’s Eric Pulier,
vice president & general manager, Cloud. “VMware vCloud Hybrid Service
is ideal for VMware customers moving workloads from traditional data
centers to the cloud. ServiceMesh enables these same customers to
eliminate application change requirements when targeting other
non-VMware based workloads and applications for the cloud. This
demonstrates the real value of the hybrid cloud.”
“Building on our longstanding partnership, we are pleased to work
closely with CSC to help organizations realize the value of the hybrid
cloud, which can remove traditional barriers to innovation, and help
accelerate new application time-to-market, all while enhancing the
relationship between IT and the business,” said Bill Fathers, senior
vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Services Business Unit,
VMware. “VMware vCloud Hybrid Service provides the architectural
flexibility for companies to match private cloud environments and move
workloads without friction.”
During its decade-long partnership with VMware, CSC has been an
innovator in the VMware Service Provider Partner program. With BizCloud
and CloudCompute, CSC was the first global systems integrator to offer a
certified VMware vCloud Datacenter cloud service. CSC was named a leader
for CSC BizCloud, a secure and highly flexible private cloud offering in
the infrastructure-as-a-service market (Gartner, Inc., “Magic Quadrant
for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service,” August 19, 2013).

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.
