The FINANCIAL — CSC and AT&T on September 23 unveiled AT&T NetBond with CSC Agility PlatformTM to help manage workloads across hybrid cloud networks.
CSC Agility Platform and AT&T NetBond help businesses become more flexible and lower costs by moving key apps to the cloud. The joint solution allows the developer to rapidly and consistently provision apps onto cloud and network services using automation. Enterprises can now safely transform to a highly secure hybrid cloud environment, according to AT&T.
“We’re combining our strengths to provide a complete hybrid cloud management solution,” said Jon Summers, senior vice president, AT&T Mobile & Business Solutions. “The CSC Agility Platform can manage multiple clouds from one dashboard and AT&T NetBond provides on-demand, dynamic network management.”
Moving apps to hybrid clouds can cause enterprise security challenges. The CSC Agility Platform quickly applies policies to all cloud resources. This improves both security and resource management while reducing audit burdens.
Here’s how it works: A business struggling to keep up with demand can use the solution to boost computing power, storage and network capacity. They can access multiple cloud providers from a CSC Agility Platform single control plane over AT&T’s virtual private network.
“We’re creating a more consistent blueprint for hybrid cloud apps. This makes the user experience easier and more complete, while improving conformance with enterprise guidelines. The joint solution does just that,” said Dan Hushon, CSC chief technology officer. “This is a step forward for enterprise cloud service — end-to-end control helps the most complex environments work better.”
