CSC Expands Presence in CoreSite Data Centers
Managed hosting provider CSC has launched a 1.5 megawatt expansion at CoreSite’s Boston and Northern Virginia data centers to deploy its Trusted Cloud Servces for a major global financial services client, the companies said today (PDF). Both deployments are fully operational.
CSC’s Trusted Cloud Services include three models that meet enterprise class requirements: off premises public and virtual private, on premises private and hybrid cloud. All cloud models share the same cloud fabric, the Vblock from the VCE Company, a standard rate card and service level agreements. All models are based on the pay-as-you-go pricing model and feature bronze, silver, gold and platinum support tiers.
