Cisco certifies our IaaS private cloud offering

Steria has joined the exclusive circle of partners fulfilling the strict standards of Cisco’s “Cloud and Managed Services” certification. The market leader in Cloud infrastructure certifies Steria's expertise in the implementation of a Managed Private Cloud based on Cisco technologies, allowing to meet the needs of their clients while maximizing their return on investment. Through its certification, Steria establishes its legitimacy on the Cloud Computing market.

Steria, a leading provider of end-to-end IT enabled business services, today announced that it has earned “Cisco Powered” certification for its “Infrastructure On Command (IoC)” Private Cloud offering. The “Cisco Powered” certification recognises Steria’s technical competence to develop, deliver, manage and support a Managed Private Cloud based on Cisco’s Cloud solutions and tools, thus ensuring end-to-end quality of service for their clients, for which it is renowned throughout the market.

Following the recent buyout of Beamap, [Cloud Computing architecture and consulting company], Steria boosts its cloud computing service by offering its clients a Private Managed Cloud based on Cisco’s solutions, both for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and for the implementation of Cloud solutions (PaaS and DaaS) , catering to the full range of business needs.

“Being a Cisco Recommended Partner is a valuable asset – for the development of our IoC offering, naturally, and also to demonstrate to our clients the high level of competence and qualifications of our cloud computing teams. Through this certification, we’ve also demonstrated our ability to bring complex, innovative projects to the market,” declared Philippe Calvet, Group Service Lines Director at Steria.

“The “Cisco Powered” certification places Steria firmly in Cisco’s Intercloud strategy, making it one of Cisco’s key partners in Europe,” added Christophe Labro, Cloud Services Director at Cisco.
