Dongbu CNI, which is growing its cloud business as part of its next generation business milestone, selected CA AppLogic software and Nimsoft Unified Manager to implement key functionalities, such as provisioning and execution control, in a faster and more cost-effective way for its cloud service platform. Dongbu CNI will provide cloud services to small medium businesses (SMBs) and medical institutions, which are facing challenges in establishing dedicated data centers and attracting skilled IT staff.
CA AppLogic software offers a turnkey cloud computing platform that enables users to develop a virtual business service that consists of the application and the supporting infrastructure. The service is designed using a graphical tool, after which it can be hosted at either an on-premise data center or managed service provider. The platform offers fully automated provisioning, so clients do not have to worry about aspects like migration and scaling. The CA AppLogic platform has received numerous industry accolades, including HostReview's Annual Web Hosting Award, which cited the software as one of the top 10 best cloud solutions, and the Cloud Computing World Series Award for Best Cloud Platform.
Nimsoft Unified Manager is an integrated solution for IT monitoring and service management that allows integrated management of all infrastructures, including server, storage, network and database in the IT and cloud environments, while improving the response time of applications and services. Through Nimsoft, companies are able to have greater visibility into the cloud environment and can provide high-availability services at affordable prices.
“We are planning to offer cloud services utilizing CA Technologies and Nimsoft solutions, and will also start cloud environment implementation business for clients that want to operate their own cloud services. We will provide Software as a Service (SaaS) for various applications, including real-time transportation management system (TMS) service, server-based computing, IT service management (ITSM), enterprise portal and energy analytics,” said Myung-se Kim, Infrastructure Outsourcing Division Manager, Dongbu CNI.
“Dongbu CNI’s implementation of a public cloud service platform in just two months is a prime example of how an enterprise is harnessing the power of the cloud to transform its business. Dongbu CNI benefitted from using our joint enterprise class solutions for a scalable, highly reliable cloud platform to deliver sophisticated business cloud services to its customers,” said Michael Choe, president, CA Technologies Korea.
Dongbu CNI has also implemented server virtualization to decrease the total cost of ownership for clients and improve service efficiency. Since the process began in 2005, Dongbu CNI has completed the virtualization of over 80% of the servers at its affiliates. With strong virtualization know-how and server hosting business capability, the company is pushing ahead with its plan to launch the cloud business, having established a Cloud Service team in the second half of last year that will join hands with global companies.
With over 17 years of experience and know-how accumulated through IT implementations, Dongbu CNI is now able to achieve greater competitiveness with end-to-end cloud management solutions from CA Technologies and Nimsoft. The company plans to penetrate the cloud market by targeting its affiliates and expanding its presence through joint marketing activities with both companies.
