Cloud computing services
Find value in the cloud from an interconnected infrastructure.
The cloud can help you get your products and services to market faster and connect employees to customers virtually anywhere around the world. But many organizations still have disparate and divided IT systems and legacy investments to manage. How can you break down these walls so the data you need to make critical business decisions moves freely across your enterprise? An agile hybrid IT approach can help you get more value out of not only the cloud, but also every part of your infrastructure.
We can help you bridge together multiple clouds, colocation, hosting and your on-premises and legacy systems, with leading networking, storage and security solutions and our managed services. You’ll get compute and storage resources to meet your specific business requirements so you can improve on-the-job processes, respond faster to customers and drive business expansion. Our cloud computing services put you in control of your cloud and hybrid infrastructure with our team there to help you every step of the way.

Find the right cloud model, and make it your own.
No two businesses use cloud computing services the same way. That’s why we offer two adaptable cloud models. Choose from virtual private and private deployment options—then customize with flexible configurations, features and support. Set up multiple cloud spaces and manage them effortlessly from our cloud console. Our highly secure cloud platform lets you make the right choices to fit your business demands, at the right time, in the right place and for the right cost. Better yet, you can easily connect your Verizon Cloud workloads to our managed hosting and colocation services, a third-party partner or even to your existing IT. This is cloud on your terms.

Data Assurance Services
Prepare for the unexpected to limit business disruptions.
Your IT infrastructure is widespread, a mix of everything from physical servers to cloud-based solutions. It keeps you agile; but when the unpredictable happens, you need to be sure the IT environment that powers your business can also protect your critical data. Limit costly downtime by recovering quickly with a reliable plan B: our Data Assurance Services. Using data virtualization technology, we can consolidate your many technologies, reduce operational complexity and provide needed storage capacity so you can keep data backed up. And we provide fast access to it through our cloud console, so when outages occur, your business can keep on moving.
Verizon Cloud Backup gives you easy-to-use backup and data protection across your on-premises, virtualized and cloud workloads. You can choose from three backup service tiers for the best option for your business. Our Utility Cloud Backup service fits variable-use workloads with short data-volume retentions. If you want predictable monthly charges and longer retention, our Protect service is your best bet. But if you have large data-volume and high physical security needs with custom data retention, our Premises-to-Cloud service is the one you want.
Verizon Cloud Disaster Recovery lets you replicate your Verizon Cloud workloads to a secondary data center and activate them if your main site is unavailable. You get simple and predictable pricing options. And all your data and apps get updated regularly so everything in production is quickly available and configured in the fully functional recovery site if your primary resources are interrupted.
