New solution can reduce deployment complexity and enable faster enterprise adoption
SAN FRANCISCO, May 1, 2014 — Deloitte announced today a new private cloud solution – Cloud ServiceFabric™ – which streamlines and accelerates the implementation of an on-premise private cloud.
Using VMware vCloud® Suite, the solution offers organizations a rapidly deployable, on-demand, on-premise private cloud offering, eliminating the use of disparate resources. Cloud ServiceFabric™ delivers pre-configured private cloud technology that is tested and ready to use – now. VMware vCloud® Suite is a comprehensive and integrated suite of cloud infrastructure and management software that enables customers to build and operate vSphere®-based private clouds based on a software-defined data center architecture.
Cloud ServiceFabric™ comes pre-loaded with self-service automation tools, scripts and support for out of the box Showback of IT service costs. Cloud ServiceFabric™ also adds service catalog integration of four key service management processes – request, change, event and capacity – along with a cloud operating model (organization structure, job descriptions and RACI models) and governance framework.
“Clients using this new solution can benefit from the deep knowledge of Deloitte’s consulting professionals combined with leading virtualization and cloud solutions from VMware,” said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “Deloitte is offering a unique pre-configured private cloud capability that maximizes internal IT resources while reducing implementation and operating costs.”
Cloud ServiceFabric™ is easily configured using Deloitte’s “Cloud-Factory” toolset to rapidly reconfigure vCloud® Suite so it aligns with specific industry and client requirements, strategic business goals, and the operating nuances and details of an individual organization. The result is a potent, streamlined approach that can be deployed within weeks, with reduced costs and risk, and a more immediate positive impact on service performance.
“As organizations continue to realize the benefits of a software-defined data center architecture, we are pleased to work closely with Deloitte to empower a diverse set of customers to rapidly deploy and scale a dynamic private cloud solution,” said Dan Smoot, senior vice president, Global Customer Operations, VMware. “Cloud ServiceFabric with VMware vCloud® Suite will offer a powerful and robust private cloud solution to enable organizations to realize greater agility, cost savings and flexibility.”
