Verizon CaaS platform now supports SUSE Linux
The Computing as a Service (CaaS) from Verizon Business has been enhanced to provide businesses with better control and flexibility over their computing environments. For instance the introduction of the Server Cloning feature provides IT administrators with the option to customize the configuration of a CaaS virtual server and then create a golden, or reference, server image.
Verizon CaaS platform now supports SUSE Linux operating system as a standard service offering. Additionally enterprises now have expanded and streamlined networking options - virtual router and shared virtual private networks, including Verizon Private IP - for connecting back-end systems to Verizon CaaS via the online portal.
In addition to the new features, Verizon has successfully completed the first annual SAS 70 Type II examination of controls for its CaaS data centers. SAS 70, a widely recognized auditing standard performed by a third party accounting firm, is conducted in compliance with the standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public
"With the addition of new features and the completion of the SAS 70 Type II data center audit, we are continuing the investment in our flagship cloud offering as enterprise clients increasingly look to cloud computing to fundamentally change the way they consume IT resources," said Joseph S. Crawford, executive director - IT solutions, Verizon Business.
