Looking to get your business on the cloud? You’re not alone: Interest in cloud computing software and infrastructure is at an all-time high. Now Verizon is moving to cash in with an offering designed to help ease companies into leveraging the new technology. Datamation has the story.
Verizon on Tuesday said it will now begin offering consulting services for enterprise customers looking for help managing, monitoring and maintaining their cloud-based applications.
Company officials said the Verizon Cloud Computing Program will offer a flexible, vendor-neutral approach for managing homegrown applications, apps hosted by a third party or those running from an existing Verizon datacenter.
Verizon (NYSE: VZ) promises to create a secure cloud-computing environment that incorporates a five-tiered process focusing on assessing, designing, migrating, managing and securing applications and datacenters in the cloud.
The timing — considering all the hype surrounding cloud computing — is ideal for Verizon as it looks for new revenue streams beyond its core wireless and Internet business.
