Engineering offers Cloud services conforming to NIST standards and ISO / IEC (17788-17789), customizable and hosted on dedicated hardware infrastructure and fully redundant. These services have been built using the best HW and SW technologies available. CloudEng enables cloud bursting to integrate its cloud with that of other market-leading operators or private cloud solutions through the implementation of the "Hybrid Cloud" model.

Engineering delivers cloud services through the Microsoft Azure Pack platform and through the Openstack platform.

Engineering cloud offer combines the expertise of the Research and Innovation Division with Engineering Software Labs application experience to offer innovative IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services and fast time to market solutions.  The company promotes numerous research initiatives for the development of cloud-ready products, and for delivering IT innovation as part of an integrated and comprehensive offer of consulting, business integration, infrastructure outsourcing and Cloud services.

Engineering, which in 2010 invested in research on Cloud Computing (Venus-C, Vision Cloud and many others) and in the same years has developed a new platform for cloud managed services for the business (CLOE), in 2016 has initiated a transformation project of its range of products and services to a new Cloud offering named GoToCloud. Through GotoCloud Engineering offers services to the Italian and international markets with the strength of significant partnerships with leading industry players (like Microsoft, RedHat, Oracle, HPE). This choice testifies a close attention of "Engineering Group" on innovation of its services and a strong commitment to meet the highest quality standards.

OpenStack Cloud

Engineering is currently working on the deployment of an Enterprise grade OpenStack Cloud with a service based on the Pont Saint Martin and Torino data centers. Engineering can also offer Cloud implementation services on customer premises, including Openstack, thanks to high level expertise and skills of its personnel. The Openstack project has already been implemented for two production systems, to support business critical services, on customer premises.

OpenStack offers the technical capabilities of proprietary alternatives at a fraction of the cost. The wide range of vendors joining the OpenStack community contribute to the overall success of the project. It provides the flexibility of choice without getting locked into a particular vendor.

Engineering experience on OpenSource projects has a long history and recently Engineering Group confirmed its support for global open source communities and contributes to OSI’s growth. Engineering Group, a founding member of the OW2 Consortium (www.ow2.org) and an associate member of Eclipse Foundation (www.eclipse.org), announced today its corporate sponsorship of the Open Source Initiative (www.opensource.org).

Engineering is a partner in the Cloud28+ Initiative. Cloud28+ is an open community of Cloud Service Providers, Cloud Resellers, ISVs, Systems Integrators and government entities dedicated to accelerating enterprise cloud adoption across Europe, Middle East and Africa. Cloud28+ builds around HPE Openstack catalogue of trusted, business cloud services that matches in-country or cross-border buyer and regulatory workload requirements.
