GreatResponder.com US Telecom giant Verizon and VMTurbo a control system provider jointly announced the launch of Intelligent Cloud Control, which will greatly help the customers of Verizon to migrate their workloads to the most efficient and effective public cloud cervices. This system works in an intelligent way and after calculating the performance and needs of the client, suggest the best cloud service provider match for the clients. They claim it’s the first automated system of its kind in the marketplace.
“Intelligent Cloud Control is different from today’s cloud brokers and managers as it factors in application performance and price,” said Endre Sara, VP of advanced solutions of VMTurbo.
Previously, the practice was totally different and it was all manual, the brokerages used to recommend the work load placement to the public cloud service provider manually. The new Intelligent Cloud Control will give an automatic system to the Verizon’s customers, which will instantly calculate the price, performance and placement. It will also make all the sizing and configuration decisions which are needed to install and transfer all workloads to the public cloud service providers.
This intelligent Cloud Control Service will allow the users to attain three main benefits: control public cloud workloads through a single Verizon interface; budget and control the public cloud use to help avoid billing surprises; and guarantee the performance and compliance of workloads beyond CSP-specific cloud monitoring.
Verizon director of enterprise networking Victoria Lonker said: “With Verizon’s Intelligent Cloud Control, we are removing the complexities and myriad trade-offs between price, performance and compliance in various public cloud services and enabling them to focus instead on the applications and services that their end-users demand all within a secure environment.”
The partners also claim that this automated system will be easy to use because of user friendly interface and it will help the users to remain on top of performance and compliance through exact cloud monitoring.
VMTurbo’s Application Performance Control system is used by 1200 enterprises to guarantee the quality of service for applications and to make full use of all resources in cloud and virtualized environments. The ‘Verizon Intelligent Cloud Control powered by VMTurbo’ service will launch during the first quarter of 2016.
