Verizon Charts Global Data Center Expansion

To meet the increasing demand for the full range of cloud services, Verizon Business announced plans to expand and enhance its data centers around the globe.


The infrastructure expansion comprises more than 5,500 additional server cabinets in the company's Internet data centers in Paris, Dublin, London, Frankfurt, Belgium, Canberra, Hong Kong and throughout the U.S. The expansion further enables the delivery of private clouds via more than 200 global data centers connected to Verizon's MPLS network, Private IP.


Within the next year, Verizon Business will expand its flagship cloud computing services suite - Computing as a Service (CaaS) - into centers in San Jose, Calif.; London; and Canberra, Australia. In addition, CaaS data centers to serve U.S. government customers will come online in Miami and Culpeper, Va., during the first quarter of 2011.


Verizon said these moves bring it another step closer to achieving its "everything-as-a-service" (EaaS) vision of offering cloud-based solutions on an as-needed basis to enterprises around the globe.
