Cloud Computing Partnership Rolling Out In Asia [pcworld.com]
Cisco Systems, EMC and VMware hope to soon sign the first Asian customers for their cloud-computing partnership and Acadia joint venture.

On Tuesday, the three companies announced a broad partnership, the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) coalition, that will develop integrated cloud-computing products called Vblock Infrastructure Packages including servers, networking, storage and virtualization software for data centers. The partners also established a joint-venture company, Acadia, which will build, operate and then transfer data centers based on Vblock to customers.

"We have some number of customers that we've agreed on between the three companies and we're calling on them now. In fact, a few of them have already reached a handshake level with us and we believe they will become early adopters of Vblock and of this new entity that we're bringing out, called Acadia," said Steve Leonard, president of EMC Asia-Pacific and Japan, during a phone interview.
