Belgacom teams with VCE on professional cloud

Belgian incumbent Belgacom is teaming with VCE to offer end-to-end cloud services to businesses.
The operator is offering professionals the infrastructure firm’s cloud platform, which bundles server, storage, networking, management and virtualization technologies. Belgacom claims the move frees companies from IT integration and validation work, so cutting the cost of deploying cloud computing.
A company statement claims the VCE partnership allows Belgacom to combine “several products and services,” in a single global product.
VCE was formed by Cisco, EMC and VMWare in late 2009.
