VNS is now available immediately on AWS.
This latest technology is built upon software defined networking and makes use of the network functions virtualization ecosystem to help global enterprises that are using the Amazon cloud to control their network and security policies.
Basically, users now not only get end-to-end visibility, but also the control they need to effectively manage their mobile-to-cloud transactions on Amazon Web Services.
As Shawn Hakl, vice president of networking and innovation, Verizon puts it:
“With this enhancement, Verizon will help enterprise and government organizations to confidently implement mission critical solutions in the cloud. This offering will help our enterprise customers be able to balance agility, performance, cost and security necessitated by the growth of mobile-to-cloud applications and the Internet of Things.”
AWS, meanwhile, sees this as an invaluable combination for enterprises that are looking to become more agile and create new efficiencies to grow their business into the future.
Verizon’s new VNS service will allow enterprise users on Amazon Web Services the ability to operate an elastic hybrid network that can be altered to meet dynamic business requirements, easily through Verizon and AWS.
