Today’s updates involve Microsoft Security, Google Cloud ROI, Cisco Partner Summit, CWPS, another VAR acquired & CenturyLink’s data center exit strategy.
Five years after CenturyLink, Verizon and other telcos began buying cloud services providers, telco hubs struggle in the public cloud world. Here’s why.
Verizon Public Cloud services apparently will end April 12. The company is urging customers to shift to Verizon Private Cloud services before the deadline.
CenturyLink’s data centers are still up for sale. Discussions with potential buyers or co-location partners will likely accelerate over the next two weeks.
Zayo has acquired another cloud data center, while CenturyLink & Verizon apparently want to sell many of their data center assets — if the price is right.
Verizon’s enterprise cloud business is for sale. The move comes only four years after Verizon spent $1.4 billion on Terremark, a public cloud provider.
CenturyLink, the massive telco that has pushed hard into cloud and managed services, may sell 59 data centers across multiple continents.
