Atos, EMC and VMware to form a cloud computing alliance to support the creation of Canopy, an Atos spin-off

Atos, EMC and VMware to form a cloud computing alliance to support the creation of Canopy, an Atos spin-off

Par admin - le 23 février 2012

Based in Europe, Canopy will offer cloud-based enterprise solutions and services, drawing on the technologies of EMC (for storage) and VMware (for virtualisation). Atos will be the main shareholder in this new company, in which EMC and VMware also intend to invest.

Using dedicated infrastructure, Canopy’s offerings will be based on open standards. Customers may therefore choose their preferred technology, whether to run the solution off- or on-premise and how to mix private, public and hybrid cloud solutions.

The solutions will be targeted at selected vertical markets, and will include:

• An Enterprise Application Store enabling customers to download the business and management applications they require under the Software as a Service (SaaS) model.

• An Enterprise Platform as a Service (PaaS) providing an open and secure enterprise Java development environment.

• A Private Cloud providing customers with a pre-configured, standardized, enterprise-grade cloud stack for on-premise and off-premise deployments.

• Cloud strategy and transformation consulting services.
