New service to enable Verizon customers to seamlessly move workloads to and among public cloud service providers based on performance, resource requirements
Basking Ridge, N.J. and Boston, Mass. (November 23, 2015) – Verizon Enterprise Solutions, a global information and communications technology provider, and VMTurbo, the only application performance control system for the software-defined data center, today announced Verizon Intelligent Cloud Control, powered by VMTurbo, to help Verizon customers migrate workloads to the ideal public cloud service based on an enterprise’s performance and resource requirements.
Unlike existing cloud brokerage solutions that manually recommend workload placement to public cloud service providers (CSPs), Intelligent Cloud Control enables Verizon customers to take advantage of software to drive real-time, automatable, price, performance and compliance-based placements. It also allows sizing and configuration decisions to deploy and migrate workloads to and among CSPs.
“Building our joint vision of Intelligent Cloud Control with Verizon has enabled us to take VMTurbo’s core capabilities to its logical extreme – enabling automatable, real-time decisions on where to provision workloads between competing cloud providers to ensure a high quality, low cost service,” said Endre Sara, Vice President, Advanced Solutions, VMTurbo. “Intelligent Cloud Control is different from cloud broker or manager programs on the market today in that it factors in application performance in real-time along with CSP price to determine the best cloud resources for every workload.”
Intelligent Cloud Control benefits users since they will be able to:
- Control public cloud workloads through a single Verizon interface
- Budget and control public cloud spend to help avoid billing surprises
- Help assure the performance and compliance of workloads beyond CSP-specific cloud monitoring
“In listening to our customers, we realized they require a better way to manage their risk when moving to the public cloud,” said Victoria Lonker, Director of Enterprise Networking for Verizon. “With Verizon’s Intelligent Cloud Control, we are removing the complexities and myriad trade-offs between price, performance and compliance in various public cloud services and enabling them to focus instead on the applications and services that their end users demand all within a secure environment.”
Verizon Intelligent Cloud Control powered by VMTurbo is planned to launch during the first quarter of 2016. Initially the service will include connections to Amazon Web Services, IBM SoftLayer and Microsoft Azure.
This new solution provides the perfect complement to Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect service. To learn more about the joint solution and to become part of the conversation, join the Green Circle Community.
