DXC is a large, well established and respected global enterprise services player with annual sales of approximately $25B. As part of its managed IT services portfolio it offers a managed storage service for medium to large-scale enterprises looking to instantiate a full function enterprise storage environment without the traditional procurement, installation and test cycles.
Enterprise IT is increasingly looking to the operating expense (OPEX) side of the budget to fund new projects – a trend that is driven by increased spending for public cloud-based IT resources. With a managed service such as Storage as a Service, customers pay monthly for storage infrastructure. Charges are based on capacity in use and the services layered on top of that capacity. This is very much in line with the cloud consumption model.
DXC’s Storage as a Service features advanced storage technologies delivered as a service from Dell EMC, Hitachi and Pure including flash; block, file and object storage. DXC layers managed services on top of the Storage as a Service offering already available from these vendors. This simplifies solution delivery and management from the standpoint of DXC. Infrastructure is therefore vendor-owned and but fully managed remotely or on-site by DXC. To support this service, DXC has forged strong relationships with Dell EMC, Hitachi and Pure for vendor support when required.
