Verizon launches new cloud consulting and managed services

Claims to help enterprises manage, monitor and maintain cloud-based applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Verizon Business has launched a set of IT consulting and managed services that offer enterprises an approach to transitioning to the cloud, while addressing security, privacy, performance and governance requirements.

The company said that its Cloud Computing Program helps enterprises manage, monitor and maintain their clouds, whether applications are delivered from an enterprise’s own data centre or one operated by Verizon or a third party.

According to Verizon Business, the lifecycle-centric program offers enterprises a vendor-neutral approach to understanding the cloud environment, using a five-tiered process, assess, design, migrate, manage and secure.

Verizon Business said that it works with enterprise customers to create a secure, cloud computing environment, while giving them the level of support required.

Cloud computing, which uses internet-based technology to supply IT resources, enables enterprises to employ computing resources in the quantities and duration as per business requirements, thereby paying for only the resources used and avoiding the need to build out for peak capacity requirements.

Joe Crawford, executive director of IT solutions and hosting product management at Verizon, said: It is now clear that cloud computing is part of the future of IT. While many businesses recognise the many benefits associated with cloud computing, concerns still persist over security, performance and governance.

“With our market-leading IT capabilities and experience from building and deploying our flagship cloud offering, computing as a service, Verizon Business is well-positioned to advise enterprises on their cloud computing strategy.
