Cable&Wireless Worldwide Selects newScale Service Catalogue Software for Its Enterprise Cloud Computing Solution

newScale Inc., pioneers of the self-service IT storefront for the enterprise, today announced that Cable&Wireless Worldwide, one of the world's leading mission critical communication providers, has selected the newScale FrontOffice Suite to support its enterprise cloud computing solution. C&W Worldwide’s cloud offering will combine newScale software together with Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS), as well as technologies from VMware and EMC, to deliver a secure, resilient and easy-to-use cloud computing infrastructure for enterprises.

“This solution from C&W Worldwide represents the ‘best-of-the-best’ in enterprise cloud computing,” said Scott Hammond, newScale CEO. “It offers the on-demand resources of a virtually limitless cloud infrastructure, a secure network and the flexibility to deploy in a variety of configurations, such as a hybrid cloud. We are thrilled that newScale’s Service Catalogue solution will serve as the ‘front office’ for its enterprise cloud computing solution, providing Cable&Wireless customers with a self-service menu of standardised service packages and automated provisioning.”

“Self-service is a core tenet of cloud computing and newScale’s solution is the ultimate IT shopfront, providing a unified front end for private and hybrid clouds as well as managed hosting services,” said Tom Stockwell, Business Manager at C&W Worldwide. “Only newScale delivers the easy-to-use self-service provisioning our customers demand, together with the policy-based controls, governance, and service lifecycle tracking we require.”

newScale FrontOffice Suite provides a Web-based portal that enables C&W Worldwide’s enterprise cloud computing customers to rapidly provision cloud resources on demand from a catalogue of available services. newScale IT storefront software enables self-provisioning of physical, virtual or cloud resources, and the company recently announced its support for Cisco UCS as well as the VMware vCloud initiative.

With newScale, service providers such as C&W Worldwide can define standard offerings, enable self-service, automate the service request workflow, manage the end-to-end service lifecycle, and track IT costs. As a result, C&W Worldwide’s customers will have easy, yet controlled, access to the IT resources they need on demand, backed by policy-based management and controls.
