CSC Positioned In “Leaders” Quadrant Of Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s Cloud Infrastructure As A Service Report

CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of the new Gartner report, “Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service.” The report, published on October 18, 2012, reviewed 15 providers of cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), looking at their vision and their ability to execute these services.

According to Gartner, “Cloud IaaS is computing resources, along with associated storage and network resources, offered to the customer via self-service in a highly-automated way, on-demand and in near-real-time. In IaaS, the provider manages the data center facilities, hardware and virtualization, but everything above the hypervisor layer — the OS, middleware and application — is managed by the customer, or is an add-on managed service from the provider or another third party. This market is wholly separate and distinct from cloud PaaS and SaaS.”

“We think cloud should be simple for our clients — simple to develop new applications, simple to transform legacy applications and simple to move them to the cloud,” said Siki Giunta, vice president and general manager, CSC Cloud. “Infrastructure as a service is the foundation of our strategy, and this ranking from Gartner reinforces CSC’s strength in combining cloud services with managed services, which we believe is critical for enterprise applications.”

The report was authored by Gartner analysts Lydia Leong, Douglas Toombs, Bob Gill, Gregor Petri, and Tiny Haynes.
