Orange Business Services joins VMware vCloud initiative

Allows cloud computing providers to develop a common platform based on VMWare vSphere

By CBR Staff Writer

Orange Business Services said that it has joined the VMware vCloud initiative, which enables cloud computing providers to develop a common platform based on VMware vSphere that will enable cloud interoperability and portability.

Orange said that it aims to provide an offering that helps customers easily switch cloud computing providers when they want, get different cloud services, and have cloud and non-cloud services that work together.

VMware is a key partner to Orange Business Services on cloud computing. Flexible computing proposes scalable hosted and virtualised n-tier infrastructures, accessed either over an Orange Business Services VPN or over the internet, that allow businesses to outsource a part or all of their IT infrastructures.

Didier Jaubert, senior vice president for global services at Orange Business Services, said: "The main point of cloud computing is to bring more flexibility to enterprises, enabling them to use what they need, when they need it, at optimized and variable costs.

"We want to be one of the first service providers to offer this freedom and flexibility to our customers. Working closely with VMware and the VMware vCloud initiative will enable Orange Business Services to bring innovations to our cloud solutions more quickly."
