Verizon Outlines New Cloud Services Model

Verizon Enterprise Solutions is pursuing a new service model for cloud services under which it will encourage multi-cloud hybrid architectures while offering a variety of services tiers, onboarding and workload migration services to encourage help enterprises to migrate business critical workloads.

Verizon promises seamless integration with third-party cloud services.  It will offer several deployment options ranging from public cloud to private on-premise cloud.

At the centerpiece of the strategy is its own Verizon Cloud, which is tightly bound with network and security capabilities. A unified user console will tie multiple cloud services together.

Verizon's MPLS-based Secure Cloud Interconnect (SCI) provides Private IP access to major cloud service providers, including just announced connectivity to AWS.

In a Verizon blog, Kevin King describes this as a "Workload-Driven Approach to the Cloud".
