Verizon Business beefs up cloud computing
With more companies migrating to cloud computing, Verizon Business announced it has bulked up its on-demand global cloud computing features.
Verizon Business said it added the enhancements to its “Computing as a Service” (Caas) platform based upon customer demand.
The new features include:
• Server cloning – Provides IT administrators with the option to customize the configuration of a CaaS virtual server and then create a golden, or reference, server image.
• Application and operating system expansion – The SUSE Linux operating system is now supported on the Verizon CaaS platform as a standard service offering. In addition, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 has been added as a "click-to-provision" database server option.
• Expanded networking flexibility – Enterprises now have expanded and streamlined networking options – virtual router and shared virtual private networks, including Verizon Private IP – for connecting back-end systems to Verizon CaaS via the online portal. In addition, customers can purchase metered, burstable bandwidth up to 1 Gbps to meet immediate requirements for temporary computing capacity.
