June 4, 2009 - CSC announced this week a family of cloud services that leverages strengths of private clouds and combines them with new public cloud models.

Cloud computing is an emerging computer architecture where services such as data and applications can be connected virtually via the Web. CSC manages complete ecosystems of cloud service providers. Their Trusted Cloud Services is a portfolio of industry-compliant infrastructure services on demand with full security features and stringent service-level criteria. CSC is also offering consulting.

Many businesses are not yet willing to host mission-critical information and regulatory compliance data in a public cloud and are still evaluating services that offer service level agreements, security, data monitoring and other means to visibility and transparency.

But Brian Boruff, vice president of CSC's cloud computing said in a statement that “Enterprises that need secure cloud operations will find that CSC offers the right mix of private and public cloud experience and will effectively orchestrate risk."

Forrester Research Analyst Jim Kobielus wrote this week that “DBAs will need to make sure that cloud-based DW offerings meet their organizations’ most stringent security, performance, availability and other service-level requirements.”
