Servers, networks, storage and desktops are transferred to virtual servers with high levels of automation
Capgemini Group has launched a new suite of virtualisation services in partnership with VMware, a provider of virtualisation and cloud infrastructure technology.
Both the companies will work together to create a flexible consumption-based IT services model that helps companies drive increased cost reductions through consolidation and server virtualisation.
Capgemini said that a virtualised IT infrastructure provides the foundation for building agile, effective cloud computing IT services, where physical hardware such as servers, networks, storage and even desktops are transferred to virtual servers with high levels of automation.
The new Virtualisation to Business services transforms IT into an ‘as a Service’ consumption model, driving a business-centric approach that focuses on outcomes such as operational efficiency, enhanced competitiveness and reduced time-to-market.
The new Virtualisation to Business (V2B) services combines Capgemini’s business-centric approach with VMware’s virtualisation technologies.
Capgemini through this new suite of service offerings will provide the insight, roadmap and support to help clients achieve infrastructure agility and cost reduction.
The new offering is based on VMware vSphere virtualisation platform and provides services in three steps: business infostructure – removing the IT and business barriers; and virtual infostructure – providing the steps required to align services to agile infrastructure management.
The third service IT-as-a-Service that allows IT services to be implemented through a self-service and consumption-based charging model.
Capgemini global head of infrastructure transformation services Daniel Chaffraix said service-oriented approach empowers clients to respond faster and more intuitively to changing market dynamics to enable them to become more competitive and to leverage new technologies.
