Verizon Business Furthers Cloud Strategy Through Global Data Center Expansion

Expanded Facilities to Accommodate Increased Customer Demand for Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud Services

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ — To meet the increasing demand for the full range of cloud services, Verizon Business is enhancing its data centers around the globe.  Within the next year, Verizon Business will expand its flagship cloud computing services suite –
Computing as a Service (CaaS) – into centers in San Jose, Calif.; London; and Canberra, Australia.  In addition, CaaS data centers to serve U.S. government customers will come online in Miami and Culpeper, Va., during the first quarter of 2011.

As part of this infrastructure enhancement project, more than 5,500 additional server cabinets for enterprise clients also will be added to Verizon Business premium Internet data centers in Paris, Dublin, London, Frankfurt, Belgium, Canberra, Hong Kong and throughout the U.S.  The expansion further enables the delivery of private clouds via more than 200 global data centers connected to Verizon’s MPLS network, Private IP.

These moves bring Verizon another step closer to achieving its “everything-as-a-service” (EaaS) vision of offering cloud-based solutions on an as-needed basis to enterprises around the globe.

This investment is part of the $16.8 billion to $17.2 billion that Verizon Communications plans to spend this year building, operating and integrating its advanced, reliable and high-performance networking and computing platforms.

“Verizon is committed to providing the essential foundation for the delivery of cloud services that will enable businesses to more efficiently achieve their goals through IT transformation,” said Kerry Bailey, Verizon Business senior vice president of enterprise strategy.  “Our continued data center expansion marks yet another milestone in achieving our EaaS vision, which will enable enterprises to do business better by getting what they need, when they need it and where they need it while only paying for those resources consumed.”

Early adopters of Verizon’s cloud services include Modevity, Celstream, iSOFT, ISID, and GWR Medical and Intelenet.  Many are using cloud computing to drive further efficiencies within their operations as well as a way to provide corporate wide access to applications while delivering enhanced ease-of-use for end-users.

Verizon Enterprise-Class CaaS Solutions Lead Market in Performance, Security

Verizon’s cloud computing solutions suite, Computing as a Service, offers enterprises on-demand computing resources, including server, network and storage capacity, with high performance and built-in security that are ideally suited to the complex needs of large enterprises. Enterprises have a choice between Verizon’s flagship CaaS offering or its hybrid solution, CaaS enabled by VMware vCloud™ Datacenter, which facilitates moving applications from a private to a public cloud setting.  Clients can configure their enterprise cloud using Verizon’s Private IP network or its global IP network.

Today, the company has CaaS data centers in Amsterdam and the U.S.  A third center in Hong Kong will come online in October.

To support enterprise clients’ virtualization and computing needs, Verizon offers access to a range of other IT services including on-site technical support services that are provided round-the-clock, 365 days a year; remote backup and restore services; application and infrastructure management; cloud storage and remote backup and restore services; as well as a broad range of consulting services for virtualization, cloud computing and storage.

Converged IT Services Via a Cloud Model

Verizon Business is evolving to an everything-as-a-service (EaaS) model in which cloud-based, converged solutions are delivered with built-in security via managed and professional services over the company’s global IP network.  Verizon is assembling the key components of that unique and powerful approach to serving enterprises, and this latest expansion and enhancement of the company’s data and cloud centers is another step in that evolution. The EaaS platform – with Verizon’s global IP network and data centers as its foundation – is at the heart of the company’s strategy.
