Verizon said with Cloud Compute, users can determine and set virtual machine and network performance, providing predictable performance for mission critical applications, even during peak times. Additionally, users can configure storage performance and attach storage to multiple virtual machines. Previously, services had pre-set configurations for size and performance, with little flexibility regarding virtual machine and network performance and storage configuration. No other cloud offering provides this level of control, the company said. In addition, while Verizon built the solution for enterprises, it is nimble enough to meet the needs of small and medium businesses, individual IT departments and software developers.
