The company provides disaster recovery services, managed IT services, information availability consulting services, and business continuity management software. SunGard's Enterprise Cloud Services, built atop a VCE V-block infrastructure platform, provide Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), with multiple layers of data protection for application availability. Among the different types of customers drawn to Enterprise Cloud Services, SunGard's Ryan says some companies have a clear directive from management to create a strategy for services in the cloud. These customers want to move from an emphasis on capital expenditures to operational expenditures to reduce overall costs while increasing efficiencies and understand that outsourcing to a cloud service provider is an option. Other customers are approaching a technology refresh as infrastructure nears end of life.
