PowerPlatform is designed to extend Verio’s range of managed hosting products for midsize and large enterprises and gives customers the capability to build out their infrastructure based on modular services, tiered support and enhanced services.

According to Verio, the framework consists of four parts — PowerPlatform Hosting, PowerPlatform Managed Services, PowerPlatform Support and a new PowerPortal. The PowerPlatform Hosting options unveiled today fall into three areas, according to Verio:

  • RapidRollout Solutions for the entry-level market

    The NTT/Verio PowerPlatform Managed Services can be deployed over some or all of the hosting platforms, according to the company. Services include advanced network services, managed security and storage solutions, monitoring and reporting, managed application services and professional services.

    The PowerPlatform Support services include a new multi-tiered structure designed to ensure varying levels of support designed to meet the needs of any hosting customers, according to Verio. The three levels include the following:
