AT&T launches Synaptic Compute with support for hybrid clouds. AT&T says the system supports bursting, disaster recovery and mobile application development and deployment.
AT&T’s goal is to ease the transition for enterprises to upgrade from a private cloud to a hybrid cloud system using AT&T’s network to provide addition storage and compute power. The service targets VMWare customers that are using the vCloud Datacenter.
AT&T claims that the system supports bursting, data center extensions, disaster recovery, and mobile application development and deployment. New features include virtual machine cloning, scalable computing and memory resources, multiple user interfaces, a multi-layer firewall and open standard software.
