Verizon Business Launches IT Virtualization Professional Services

Verizon Business is launching a new set of Virtualization Consulting and Management Services aimed at helping enterprises make the most of virtualized environments. The company also announced that it has earned the top designation as a provider of VMware technology.

Verizon Business said its professional services team could customers determine what virtualization solution will enable them to make the best use of their IT resources. Industry experts estimate that roughly 80 percent of computing capacity is unused at any one time.

First, Verizon Business engineers evaluate the utilization and capacity of customers' servers, recommend which servers and applications are strong candidates for virtualization, and provide a cost-benefit analysis. In the build phase, VMware servers are installed and configured into the customer's infrastructure. Professional services experts also migrate physical servers and applications into the new virtual environment.

Once the migration is complete, Verizon Business can monitor and manage the virtualization technology round-the-clock, 365 days a year. Verizon Business can manage the virtual servers and infrastructure at the customer's data center, a third party center or a Verizon Data Center.

Earlier this year, Verizon Business deployed a shared VMware Virtual Center management infrastructure to configure and operate virtualized environments. These new consulting services enable Verizon Business to assist hosted customers in a shared infrastructure with an easier transition and deployment.http://www.verizonbusiness.com/us/itsolutions
