By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor
SunGard Availability Services, a provider of disaster recovery services, managed IT services, information availability consulting services and business continuity management software, was recently recognized with a Cisco Partner Summit theater award for Cloud Partner of the Year in the service provider category.
According to the officials from Cisco (News - Alert), SunGard has been recognized for its cloud solutions that deliver the high availability and scalability the operations demand. Enterprise Cloud Services customers can work within the SunGard cloud portal to modify their infrastructure, such as adding new virtual machines, storage or changing the firewall policy to address a security vulnerability.
A SunGard cloud expert reviews the request and recommends modifications if needed to help ensure availability before changes are executed through IT automation, providing a safeguard against avoidable outages while still delivering rapid provisioning of new cloud service.
"Cisco is proud to partner with so many well-respected and industry-leading organizations, and it is an honor to recognize SunGard Availability Services as a Cisco Partner Summit theater award winner," said Jim Sherriff (News - Alert), senior vice president, Americas Partner Organization at Cisco. "The Cloud Partner of the Year award presented to SunGard recognizes its performance and expertise as a Cisco service provider in 2011."
Sungard also offers Recover2Cloud services that deliver contractual service-level agreements, guaranteeing specific recovery time and recovery point objectives, which are a suite of customizable solutions that guarantee recovery of your critical applications on secure, enterprise-class cloud infrastructure. These services provide cloud deployment alternatives in public and private clouds.
"The Cisco Cloud Partner of the Year award is strong validation for SunGard's Cloud strategy of providing secure, fully managed offerings for production and recovery," said Rob Walters, vice president of product management, SunGard Availability Services. "Delivering our solutions on premium Cisco UCS infrastructure is essential to us in providing highly available cloud services."
Sungard is set to announce their Q1 2012 financial results, ending this past March, on May 1.
