transparency. They also provide automated arrangement, coordination, federation,
management and security in addition to a public, private and hybrid cloud
computing environment.

Trusted Cloud services provide a portfolio of desktop, computing, storage and
network infrastructure services available on a just-in-time and on-demand
basis, the company says, with full security and service-level agreements.

In addition, CSC customers will have access
to the company’s consulting on cloud computing.

CSC says the Global Business Consulting and
Solutions Practice will be led by Lem Lasher, president of CSC’s
Global Business Solutions and chief innovation officer.
"CSC has decades of experience managing
‘private cloud’ enterprise computing environments on a global scale," says
Brian Boruff, vice president of CSC’s Cloud
Computing, in a prepared statement issued by the company. "Extending these
skills to integrate and manage public and private clouds is a natural step in
the evolution of our business. Enterprises that need secure cloud operations
will find that CSC offers ‘the right mix’ of
private and public cloud experience and will effectively orchestrate risk."
