BT will support Cisco’s InterCloud service working alongside Citrix and NetApp to expand its Cloud Compute portfolio.
In a statement, BT said Cisco’s InterCloud, supporting Citrix CloudPlatform powered by Apache CloudStack, enables companies to move workloads, such as storage, compute and applications, across different clouds in a highly secure way.
BT worked with Cisco, Citrix and NetApp to develop and launch its Cloud Compute services across 17 countries in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific.
The service allows life sciences companies to collaborate on research and development projects and improve their speed to market. It is used by leading international law firms to provide clients with fast access to legal and market know-how across Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
“Our global network reach and extensive Cloud Compute capability give us a unique advantage in helping our customers design and build cloud solutions that are tailored to their needs,” said Neil Lock, director of BT Compute portfolio at BT Global Services.
