CSC has signed a five-and-a-half year information technology (IT) operations outsourcing contract renewal and expansion with educational testing and assessment organisation Educational Testing Service (ETS).

Under the agreement, CSC will provide its cloud services to ETS including CloudCompute, the new infrastructure as a service (IaaS) architecture deployed in the CSC Trusted Cloud Datacentres.

In addition, CSC will also provides service desk, end-user support, network support, distributed computing, security operations, disaster recovery and data centre management services.

The CloudCompute infrastructure is built on the Vblock Infrastructure Platform from the Virtual Computing Environment Company. The virtualisation software, networking, security, computing, storage and management technologies from Cisco, EMC and VMware are integrated with the help of Vblock.

ETS vice-president and chief information officer Daniel Wakeman said CSC has provided IT offerings for ETS since 2001.

"We are pleased to continue our long time relationship with CSC and are confident their IT solutions will have a positive effect on ETS business," said Wakeman.
