n this session, you will see how Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) provides a client-directed cloud solution focused on what customers want to do today. ACS has created a private cloud-based service that offers many of the benefits of a public cloud computing environment. The difference is that in a private cloud-based service, data and processes are managed within an ACS trusted environment without the security exposures and legal requirements that come with using public cloud services across open, public networks. Additionally, private cloud services can offer the enterprise greater control, thus improving security and resiliency as user access and the networks are restricted and designated.
Novell and ACS teamed together to build the ACS Management Platform, which enables you to fully manage the cloud service offerings, from the core management services to distributed multiple clouds running in multiple data centers. Learn how the ACS Management Platform provides streamlined service provisioning of application tiers and performance levels in a multi-tenant, virtualized, cross-cloud computing platforms. Additionally, it provides ITIL 3.0, Pharma and SOX compliance to ensure you have high levels of services at a much lower price than traditional service providers.
Learn how Novell and ACS are working together to help customers with the creation of various business models, which include the integration of services from different providers (public and private) to support and drive business innovation and optimization. This session will demonstrate a multi-phase delivery engagement model to define, integrate, and implement the technologies and processes necessary to deliver cloud-based services.
