Web Hosting Provider Verizon Business Expands Managed Hosting Capabilities

September 17, 2006 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Web hosting provider Verizon Business has expanded its managed hosting capabilities, it was announced recently. The company’s managed hosting now supports five of the world's most widely deployed computer operating systems – Microsoft Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Sun Solaris systems alongside IBM's AIX and Hewlett-Packard's UX.

"Enterprises today need greater flexibility, choice, performance and reliability in orchestrating essential business applications within more complex IT infrastructures, often the result of acquisitions, consolidations or choices based on features, application performance or architectural requirements," explained Jim DeMerlis, Verizon Business Vice President of Managed Services Marketing. "The challenge of maintaining and securing multiple operating systems puts more stress on the already scarce IT resources of many organizations, which can result in poor performance of critical business applications."

Verizon Business support will include essential IP Application Hosting services such as hardware break/fix, software administration, patching, monitoring and backups. The company also supports common applications such as web and application servers and database software. "This strengthens the breadth of hosting operating system support from Verizon Business," remarked Rona Shuchat, Research Director at Industry Analyst firm IDC. "Further enhanced by its networking capabilities and its flagship MPLS-based offering, Private IP, Verizon Business is ensuring that mission-critical business requirements such as Web-enabled enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) applications can be fully supported in line with evolving enterprise landscapes."
