INDIA: Atos has launched its Digital Data Center services that as claimed –  enable clients to stay ahead of the competition by ensuring their IT operates securely at the speed of their business.  Atos has listed some new software defined services here like: Digital Data Center design, planning and implementation services, Digital Data Center Managed services at customer or Atos secure data centers.

The services will be provided by a dedicated global Atos team to customers worldwide so organizations can migrate and transform to the new Digital Revolution in a non-disruptive way, both smoothly and progressively, it adds. The Digital Data Center services also complement the offerings from Canopy – the Atos Cloud powered by EMC and VMware – so clients can benefit from an end to end capability in the digital space.

It extends its virtualized compute services to include networking, storage and management/automation, delivered as a managed service of a fully integrated software defined platform. Digital Data Center services are built on a software-defined data center architecture and commodity hardware that uses technologies from VMware.

Eric Grall, Head of Managed Services, Atos said: “At Atos we are progressing our customers to what we define as the third Digital Revolution. This is where the speed of IT finally meets the business demand in providing infrastructure resources just when our customers need them, ensuring they can gain a competitive advantage. The Digital Data Center services provide a step change in infrastructure and complement our Canopy solutions and services, positioning Atos as the leader in helping clients to evolve their IT infrastructure to leverage the best of breed software-defined and Cloud technologies”.

“Through a software-defined data center architecture, organizations have the ability to realize greater scalability, flexibility and agility in their IT infrastructure,” said Todd Surdey, Vice President, Global Strategic Alliances and Emerging Partners, VMware.

In addition to speed, the Digital Data Center provides increased security and significant lower running costs and Atos highlights that unlike in existing data centers, in the new digital data center the “intelligence” moves out of the hardware devices towards a new over-arching software layer.

The first Digital Data Center pilots are beginning in Q1 2015 with further functionality from a pre-defined roadmap to be added throughout 2015 and beyond.

According to Gartner: “SDDC’s (Software Defined Data Center’s) key value is enabling agility through policy-based automation of the data center and facilities infrastructure. Software-defined infrastructures are a new way to operate, orchestrate and automate what used to be a manual task, resulting in enhanced processing, mobility and workflow, both internally and externally. It allows for configuration from one place, and will eventually encompass networks, storage, data centers and more.”
