Verizon Business has announced Network as a Service (NaaS) Cloud Management, a new service that enables businesses to control application components and network architecture across multiple cloud environments – public, private and hybrid, in a unified online portal.
Multi-cloud networking is popular among organizations for its ability to host applications in cloud environments with different accessibility, compatibility and data sovereignty policies. However, this could pose challenges for enterprise CIOs, such as connecting workloads across the different cloud environments and developing a standardized architecture and security practices.
NaaS Cloud Management plays a role in such scenarios, with the potential to help alleviate concerns with quicker application connections and response times. The technology is also said to provide better visibility into performance, process management and network conditions across the multi-cloud environment.
The solution’s comprehensive view of cloud network and application performance promises easy insight into overall service health, network traffic, global network cloud connections and issue management tickets.
The new Verizon Business solution is designed to work with its NaaS offering to simplify multi-cloud management as part of the flexible service-model fabric.
NaaS Cloud Management could also enable users to establish connectivity between those public, private and hybrid environments, and between clouds and network infrastructure at the edge. This facilitates secure interconnection of cloud service providers, data centers and end users while maintaining security standards.
By standardizing workload connectivity and offering a uniform procedure for security protocols, governance and configurations, NaaS Cloud Management can consolidate complex multi-cloud networking processes into a simple, integrated network workflow that supports business transformations.
“The NaaS Cloud Management solution can revolutionize the way IT teams deploy and manage cloud applications and monitor multi-cloud connections, making the process simpler and more user-friendly than ever before,” said Debika Bhattacharya, chief technology solutions officer of Verizon Business.
“Being able to deploy workload connections quickly between different environments empowers organizations to scale cloud engineering and development processes, mitigate risk and operate with minimal friction.”
