By CBR Staff Writer

Information technology services company Atos, storage hardware services provide EMC and virtualisation company VMware have entered into a strategic alliance for open cloud computing.

Atos plans to create a new company, Canopy, to provide a wide range of cloud services designed to accelerate the delivery and help customers take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing.

The new strategic cloud service, powered by EMC and VMware technologies, will enable clients anywhere in the world to choose, access and download applications they require under the Software as a Service (SaaS) model.

Managed by Atos, the new cloud offering will provide a secure enterprise Java development environment, incorporating a standard development framework where Canopy and its clients can design, create and test new cloud applications.

The new service will provide clients with a pre-configured, standardised, enterprise-grade cloud stack for on-premise and off-premise deployments, enabling clients to speed up their cloud readiness.

Atos chairman and chief executive officer Thierry Breton said Canopy will in particular closely work with its private and public sector customers to guarantee that its cloud solutions and operations will provide the highest level of integrity, reliability and security.
