"Verizon Business is all about empowering our customers," said Michael Marcellin, vice president of product marketing for Verizon Business. "With our newest virtualization option, customers can run leaner and meaner, while out- tasking the management of these complex environments. What's more, this offering can even help companies to be 'greener,' which is a big plus in today's eco-friendly business environment."
The launch of this new service follows three years of supporting VMware ESX Server, the world's leading virtualization solution, in a staging and development environment. Today Verizon Business is deploying a shared VMware Virtual Center management infrastructure to configure and operate this virtualized environment, enabling customers to take advantage of Verizon Business' expertise and best practices in managing this technology.
Use of this service can also reduce the need for customers to purchase additional software and hardware when deploying new applications.
Companies today are turning to virtualization to harness more flexibility and efficiency from their IT applications. According to industry analyst research, virtualization is fast becoming a mainstream technology and is poised to experience solid growth in the coming years.
