CSC, a provider of technology-enabled business solutions and services, is deploying Cisco’s Intelligent Automation for Cloud solution to automate the delivery and management of cloud services to clients.
CSC said that the Cisco solution can automate the complex processes involved in cloud service delivery. The company is working with alliance partners like Cisco to provide an automation and management layer for CSC’s off-premises and on-premises cloud models.
“Intelligent automation software from Cisco is fundamental to building our cloud services platform because it can automate the many procedures that span operations, and can integrate smoothly across heterogeneous environments. It allows us to deliver self-service provisioning and orchestration across Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as well as other existing systems,” said Siki Giunta, global vice president, Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC.
The company said that the deployment allows it to provide a self-service portal and service catalog that enables clients to easily order cloud infrastructure services online with on-demand provisioning.
“The demand for cloud services is accelerating rapidly, and CSC is benefiting from that growth. In an effort to deliver cloud services faster and more efficiently, CSC saw the value in Cisco’s intelligent automation software for provisioning physical and virtual infrastructure on the Vblock platform and other environments,” said Flint Brenton, senior vice president of Cisco’s Intelligent Automation Solutions.
CSC’s infrastructure includes VCE’s Vblock platform as a preferred infrastructure stack for cloud services, comprising Cisco (UCS) blade servers, Cisco networking components, EMC storage systems and VMware virtualization technology.
