BT Compute Management System

Choice and connected control in the cloud

The cloud is opening up a host of new opportunities and taking us all in new directions. Allowing us to think big, do more, do it faster and expand further. But to really transform your IT and provide greater value, you need access to storage, data and applications, quickly and seamlessly.

How? Well, there‘s a system we’ve designed to help your business transform, expand globally and securely… with instant access to knowledge and expertise.

Our Compute Management System (CMS), gives you both choice and control in the cloud. Organisations shouldn’t have to decide which vendor’s technology they’ll be locked in to, if that decision curbs their ambitions later. You need access to systems you’re already using, as well as being able to switch on new independent apps in a moment. 

You should have the option to run private and public clouds together and blend your own data centres with cloud-enabled ones, and be sure everything will run seamlessly together. And moving to the cloud shouldn’t have to be a dramatic throw of the on-off lever. 

Organisations should be able to do what they want at the pace that’s right for their aims and strategy. We make that flexibility possible, from how to connect to the cloud, to where applications run from. And with our CMS, we put you in control. 

Through it they can see all your resources as a virtual data centre and manage your IT, applications and data. You can get new infrastructure up and running in minutes, deploy and manage applications and get cloud-based file storage, data protection and sharing services and more.

Give me choice and control in the cloud
