CSC Launches CSC BizCloud™: The Industry’s First On-Premise Private Cloud Billed as a Service

CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced CSC BizCloud™, the only on-premise private cloud billed as a service currently available. Ready for workloads in 10 weeks, BizCloud combines the privacy, security and control of a private cloud with the agility, convenience and commercial model of a public cloud. By offering this service, CSC has taken the work out of implementing a private cloud and overcome many objections that security-conscious organizations have to cloud adoption. BizCloud is expected to accelerate the adoption of a private cloud by businesses and government agencies because it eliminates long-lead times for implementation and the need to budget for capital investment.

“For enterprises, it has been difficult to obtain the economic benefits of a public cloud which is delivered to them as a private cloud,” said Robert Mahowald, vice president, SaaS & Cloud Services, IDC. “CSC has been very strategic with this announcement. They engaged customers in a discussion about their business needs and developed a flexible solution that addresses those needs spot on. BizCloud and CSC's related services break new ground for IT buyers trying to navigate the road to data center transformation.”

BizCloud features CloudCompute, CSC’s new infrastructure as a service (IaaS) architecture which is deployed in the CSC Trusted Cloud Datacenters. CloudCompute delivers compute, storage and network resources as a service to support any application and is especially capable for hosting mission critical and business critical workloads. The CloudCompute infrastructure is built on the Vblock™ Infrastructure Platform from VCE, The Virtual Computing Environment Company. Vblock integrates the leading virtualization software, networking, security, computing, storage and management technologies from industry leaders Cisco, EMC and VMware. CSC's partnership with VCE enables the economic model that is unique to BizCloud.

“IT delivery is transforming at a record pace and, by leveraging a converged infrastructure platform and solutions from VCE, CSC is accelerating the rate at which its customers can take advantage of the cost and flexibility benefits of cloud-based computing,” said Todd Pavone, senior vice president, Solutions, VCE.

“BizCloud and CloudCompute provide the centerpiece of the modern virtualized datacenter,” said Siki Giunta, vice president of Cloud Computing and Software Services, CSC. “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.”

CloudCompute is offered in three packages: Standard, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus. CloudCompute enables organizations to align workload requirements with the right CloudCompute package and service level. Customers mix and match the three packages and four tiers of service with guaranteed availability levels from 99 to 99.95 percent. All CSC cloud models are billed as a service from a standard rate card — the same rate card for off- and on- premise private clouds and public cloud models.

BizCloud with CloudCompute is the strategic alternative for private and public sector CIOs, allowing them to focus on IT resources on high value deliverables versus ongoing operations. CIOs can:

  • Improve agility and accelerate cycle time by scaling on-demand — expanding and contracting resources as needed.
  • Mitigate risk and improve ROI for implementing new business and mission critical solutions.
  • Limit upfront IT investment and free up capital for strategic business investments.
  • Simplify cloud adoption in order to act quickly on data center consolidation initiatives.
  • Modernize applications for agility and cost reduction.
  • Create new applications in weeks, not months.

Because BizCloud shares the same infrastructure as the CSC public and off-premise private cloud models, organizations can focus on moving workloads to the right cloud model based on the security and control those workloads require. BizCloud and CloudCompute are available immediately for business and government organizations globally.

As with all trusted cloud services, CSC takes a “business first” approach when advising customers on the right cloud — evaluating business processes and identifying ideal workloads to generate the greatest ROI for the enterprise and then aligning the workloads to the best combination of public and private systems. While maintaining technology independence with the ability to offer tailored solutions to meet any business need, CSC will lead with a strong point of view when advising new and existing clients that the VCE Vblock platform is “enterprise ready” as they seek to exploit the business and economic advantages of the cloud. In addition, CSC’s globally recognized leadership in cybersecurity serves as the foundation to enable “trusted cloud” services.

BizCloud will be rolled out in stages across the globe.
