British multinational telecommunications company British Telecom (BT) has come up with a new generation of cloud services. The new services allow large organizations around the world to connect easily and securely to the applications and the data they need, independently of where they are hosted.
The new services take advantage of BT’s global network infrastructure and build on BT’s long standing expertise in the delivery of enterprise-grade cloud services. They rely on innovative technology developed by BT and its partners in the fields of diversified infrastructure management, service management, global network optimisation, application performance acceleration and security.
BT’s ‘cloud of clouds’ vision builds on a roadmap for future service delivery and is underpinned by a wide range of services and industry sector solutions, delivered over BT’s global network infrastructure. The services are managed by customers through a single user-friendly service catalogue, using BT’s new Cloud Management System.
Luis Alvarez, CEO, BT Global Services said in the official announcement, “In the future digital age, no business will be successful unless it makes the most of the cloud. CIOs ask for choice and flexibility, trusted security and the best know-how in the industry to meet their business challenges. This matches perfectly with our network-centric vision of the ‘cloud of clouds’ and leverages the experience gained through the cloud ecosystems we have already built for the global financial services and life sciences sectors.
