CDC Global Services, a business unit of CDC and a provider of consulting, IT and IT-enabled services, has entered into an agreement to provide design, implementation and operations services for the Foshan Municipal Cloud Computing Center.

The Foshan Municipal Cloud Computing Center provides cloud-based computing resources to the public sector users and businesses in the city of Foshan and the neighboring regions.

Under the terms of the agreement, CDC Global Services will design and implement the PaaS layer (Platform as a Service), which will support a set of open standards.

CDC Global Services also expects to provide on-going management and operations services in the Center and advise the government in the adoption of various SaaS offerings to meet the needs of the public sectors users and its business community.

Upon completing the PaaS layer implementation and the first phase rollout of the SaaS services, CDC Global Services has the option, under this agreement, to form a joint venture with this government-funded Cloud Computing Center to operate this Center and to provide cloud-based services to government agencies and the business communities in the region.
