Verizon Business has added to its portfolio of enterprise IT services with cloud storage, hosted storage management and data retention consulting services.
The services will be launched in July on a 'pay as you go' model offering in-house and third-party tools to access and manage the service, as well as APIs for companies looking to develop their own applications.
The Data Retention consulting service will aim to help companies set up and establish policies and management controls on stored data.
"The current methods of storing growing volumes of enterprise data are simply not sustainable from either a cost or management perspective," said Joseph Crawford, executive director of IT solutions product management at Verizon Business.
"Our new cloud storage service is yet another example of our vision to deliver IT services via an 'as-a-service' model."
