Mitsubishi DSC To Resell IBM’s CloudBurst Technology

Key features of its cloud computing services will include advanced virtualization

IBM Session at Cloud Expo

Starting in February DCS, a k a Mitsubishi Research Institute DCS Company, the ~1,800-man systems integrator, will resell IBM’s CloudBurst private cloud infrastructure, to Japanese customers in various industries.

It also plans on using the widgetry to provide various services out of its own data center in Chiba Prefecture starting with an internal R&D environment.

And besides the private cloud business it figures to get into SaaS too.

It says key features of its cloud computing services will include advanced virtualization, automated system distribution and a standard base environment that employs best practices.

CloudBurst, in case telling one cloud from another has gotten a bit foggy, is the all-in-one solution that packages up the necessary servers, storage, networks and software for configuring cloud environments, together with installation services and the metering and electric power monitoring widgetry for volume-based pricing.

DCS specializes in everything from data processing to computer system development, operation, maintenance, system integration and network services, particularly in banking and finance, a legacy from its days as a division of Mitsubishi Bank (now Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ).
