Capgemini, DataSynapse Team

NEW YORK -- DataSynapse, the global provider of application virtualization software, today announced an alliance with Capgemini, one of the worlds foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services. The Capgemini Outsourcing UK Division is adopting DataSynapse’s GridServer® and FabricServer™ application virtualization technologies to develop offerings that can meet the changing needs of its customers and to drive innovation in the burgeoning virtualization market.

Outsourcing firms are often the first to adopt new technologies in order to consistently deliver innovative, cutting-edge services to their clients. Capgemini’s Outsourcing Services operation have offered virtualization services for some time, including server, storage and network solutions and recognized the benefits of incorporating application virtualization to complete a robust and extensive portfolio of virtualization services for their clients.

Teaming with DataSynapse, Capgemini outsourcing customers will be able to reap extensive and rapid benefits across application and infrastructure environments, including improved resiliency, application performance, reduce costs whilst moving to guarantee application SLAs and improve time to market.

In a report released July 11, IDC found that the market for virtualization services will grow from $5.5 billion in 2006 to $11.7 billion in 2011, as businesses turn to the technology to address a range of issues in the data center from power consumption to consolidation to cooling costs. In embracing this latest virtualization technology Capgemini Outsourcing Services aims to help organizations evolve their green technology efforts by enabling clients to dynamically allocate, manage and control resources – shutting down resources that aren’t needed and using less hardware to meet SLA performance targets, thus saving and reducing energy use and expenditure.

“The addition of DataSynapse’s application virtualization technology allows us to extend and complete our virtualization offerings and round out our overall solution stack,” said Karl Deacon, CTO, Capgemini Outsourcing UK. ”As one of the few companies leading in the area of application virtualization, coupled with a comfortable match of collaborative culture and approach, DataSynapse was the clear choice to help accelerate our business by offering new, innovative ways to support our clients business challenges.”
