GREENBELT, MD., Oct. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Presidio announced today that it has been named one of the first four companies to commit to the Cisco Intercloud Builders channel program to build Intercloud-ready private clouds based on Cisco Intercloud fabric. Presidio was also named as one of the Intercloud Providers that will deliver next generation Intercloud enabled cloud services.
Cisco recently announced a major expansion of their Intercloud ecosystem by adding more than 30 additional companies, including international service providers Deutsche Telekom, BT, NTT DATA, and Equinix, to continue to expand the worldwide network of interconnected clouds that Cisco and its partners are rapidly developing to enable a new generation of standardized cloud applications and the proliferation of highly secure hybrid clouds. The addition will expand the reach of the Intercloud by 250 additional data centers in 50 countries.
"We are extremely pleased to be one of the first partners in the Intercloud Builder program as well as having the credentials to be an Intercloud Provider," stated Dave Hart, COO of Presidio. "Presidio's Cloud Services continue to focus on providing our clients with the right combination of cloud offerings that meet their unique business needs. Every business is different and requires a different service delivery strategy that is a blend of private and public offerings."
Presidio's Cloud Services include a service catalogue management and orchestration portal for both private and public assets as well as choices in consumption models. "We have enabled our clients to create a delivery model that is based on Capacity on Demand, which provides public like benefits yet in a private cloud environment, along with a managed orchestration solution" said Vinu Thomas, VP of Solutions for Presidio. "This is one example of how we are custom tailoring solutions to help clients respond to their internal requirements of being agile to their users and customers. With Cisco's Intercloud we have options to extend the data center."
