NEW YORK – Australia-based Global Gossip has turned to Verizon Global Wholesale for a robust cloud computing platform that supports the worldwide communications services provider’s 300 sites across Australia, Europe, Fiji, New Zealand, the U.K., and the U.S.
The platform, provided through Verizon’s highly resilient on-demand Computing-as-a-Service (CaaS) is fully managed and gives Global Gossip the flexibility to quickly accommodate new functionality and growth. The company specializes in guest communications that include software, hardware, management and support with phone cards, mobile, Internet and wireless access for tourists, especially youth and student travelers.
“As business needs evolve, companies like Global Gossip rely on Verizon Global Wholesale to deliver the high-performance cloud services they need, freeing them to focus on their core goal of providing quality services to their own customers,” said Patrick Sullivan, sales leader for Asia-Pacific, Verizon Global Wholesale.
Verizon’s dynamic cloud services give Global Gossip the ability to configure and reconfigure its computing infrastructure round-the-clock and monitor the performance and availability of its applications while knowing its content is secure and reliable. By relying on Verizon’s easy-to-use customer management portal, Global Gossip can dynamically move, add or delete resources such as physical and virtual services.
Verizon’s global footprint, 24/7 service support and exceptional server availability allow Global Gossip to leverage Verizon’s highly secure cloud environment for better transit quality and coverage.
Because Verizon’s cloud services provide enhanced visibility into traffic usage and associated costs, Global Gossip has key information to quickly respond to the changing business environment. Detailed reports on deployed resources, as well as service requests and comprehensive online support, provide the control and flexibility that wholesale customers like Global Gossip need to be successful.
In addition, Global Gossip can easily back up its operations into the cloud, safeguarding its resources in the case of service interruptions and providing a built-in layer of protection.
