Systems integrator CSC is planning to add some substantial infrastructure to its cloud effort. They have launched a 1.5MW expansion at two of CoreSite's facilities in Boston and Northern Virginia in support of a one of their clients in the global financial vertical. The infrastructure is already in place, with direct access to CSC's Trusted Cloud offering.
We may have seen more noise from both the tech giants and the large telcos on cloud deployments, but the systems integrators are in the game also and they hold just as many cards. CSC's cloud offerings cover the full range of public, private, and hybrid possibilities, and are powered by VCE's Vblock.
CoreSite (NYSE:COR, news, filings) became the third of the publicly traded REITs almost a year and a half ago now, my how time flies. So far this year, they've announced three substantial cloud-related moves already. Today's CSC news follows Eucalyptus's Cloud Test Lab earlier this week and support for Amazon's AWS Direct Connect last month.
