Terremark, EMC to help speed up cloud deployment
By Asia Cloud Forum editors 12-Jun-2012
Terremark, a Verizon company and a Platinum partner in the EMC Velocity Service Provider Partner Program, is betting on the information infrastructure vendor's storage, backup and replication technologies for its Enterprise Cloud Private Edition as well as public and hybrid deployments.
As part of a strategic initiative, Terremark will standardize its private cloud business on EMC infrastructure technologies and offer EMC-based public and hybrid cloud deployments for their customers.
The collaboration will also leverage common channels through Terremark and EMC to bring to market a range of cloud-based options for IT organizations seeking to gain business agility and control through cloud computing.
"EMC, Verizon and Terremark have been working in the market for nearly a decade," said Bill Scannell, executive vice president of Americas and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at EMC, who hopes the partnership will help customers more rapidly realize the true benefits of cloud computing, transform their business operations and ultimately deliver IT as a service.
"We believe EMC to be an excellent strategic partner who offers advanced cloud-optimized infrastructure technology," said David Small, chief platform officer at Verizon Enterprise Solutions. "Together, we can harness the power of our disruptive innovations to help customers increase their business value."
