Cisco’s Intelligent Automation for Cloud application can automate the complex processes involved in cloud service delivery, claims CSC
IT and business services CSC has selected Cisco’s Intelligent Automation for Cloud application to automate the delivery and management of cloud services to clients.
Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud will enable CSC to provide a self-service portal and service catalog that enables clients to order cloud infrastructure services online with on-demand provisioning, a workflow engine to automate tasks associated with orchestration and pay-per-use tracking.
CSC said that the Cisco’s Intelligent Automation for Cloud application 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.
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.
CSC Cloud Computing and Software Services global vice president Siki Giunta said intelligent automation software from Cisco is fundamental to building its cloud services platform because it can automate the many procedures that span operations, and can integrate 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 Giunta.
