BT has recently unveiled a new generation of cloud services that allow large organizations around the world to connect easily and securely to the applications and the data they need, independently of where they are hosted. BT said that the new cloud service will empower customers to integrate and orchestrate the IT resources hosted on their own private clouds as well as on BT’s global cloud platform and on the platforms of other leading cloud providers.
Via the service, BT will provide a catalogue through its Cloud Management System to link customers to a wide range of services, such as IT infrastructure and "as a service" applications. It includes seamless provision and integration of cloud and non-cloud services and integration of private, public and hybrid cloud services to support IT needs of customers. BT also aims to facilitate the transition to the cloud and the delivery of a great user experience through global network optimization, application performance acceleration and management capabilities leveraging proven technology from BearingPoint, Dynatrace, Ipanema, Riverbed and others.
