Sungard AS Launches Private Cloud with Fully Automated Recovery

Bit Ninja

Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) has launched its new private cloud solution. The company delivers its cloud connected infrastructure solutions from 75 hardened data centers and workplace recovery facilities in North America and Europe. A key differentiator of this private cloud solution would be a fully automated recovery of complex solutions within this private cloud.

Built on hyper-converged technology from its longstanding relationships with Dell Technologies and VMware, Sungard AS Private Cloud would offer resiliency, control and commercial flexibility. In minutes, customers can recover applications all the way up the stack, going well beyond basic data recovery and relieving the burden of reconstructing recovered applications.

This private cloud solution is hosted in Sungard AS’ Connected Infrastructure Hubs, where customers can leverage “high-performance, low-latency” connectivity to public cloud environments. It would allow enterprises to drive application performance by streamlining their hybrid IT and multi-cloud architecture demands.

“Our new private cloud solution helps customers focus on their core business while retaining a level of control as their needs change,” said Jim Paterson, Executive Vice President, Global Products and Technology at Sungard AS. “Many IT leaders are struggling to develop their own private cloud infrastructures, expedite cloud migration or accommodate workloads that are not suitable for a hyperscale cloud solution. Sungard AS’ private cloud enables them to easily deploy and manage applications in a modern, secure and agile infrastructure.”

“Many IT leaders are struggling to develop their own private cloud infrastructures, expedite cloud migration or accommodate workloads that are not suitable for a hyperscale cloud solution,” said Jim Paterson, Executive Vice President, Global Products and Technology at Sungard AS.

Customers can leverage Sungard AS service models ranging from self-managed to fully managed, or something in between, to augment their IT staff when and as they need it. To further support their evolving needs, customers have access to pay-as-you-use, on-demand bursting without any contract changes. This would give users the ability to shift solution spend across resource consumption and services to grow and adapt at whatever speed or direction is required.

“Dell Technologies’ Global Alliances partner ecosystem is critical to delivering the solutions our customers are asking for,” said Bill McCarthy, Vice President, Americas Alliances, at Dell Technologies. “Sungard AS’ resiliency services paired with Dell EMC VxRail and Dell EMC Integrated Data Protection Appliance ensure the private cloud performance, flexibility and security needed to help enterprises drive digital transformation.”

“Leveraging the right virtual infrastructure is key to every digital transformation strategy,” said Jim Aluotto, Senior Director, Cloud Provider Business at VMware. “By combining Sungard AS’ world-class resiliency strengths with VMware Software Defined technology behind this new private cloud offering, global businesses can better navigate their digital journeys with confidence.”
