CSC Positioned in “Leaders” Quadrant of Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s
Cloud Infrastructure as a Service Report
FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- October 24, 2012
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
The report was authored by Gartner analysts Lydia Leong, Douglas Toombs, Bob
Gill, Gregor Petri, and Tiny Haynes.
