BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ Secure Cloud Interconnect service is now available with HP Helion Managed Cloud Service and the Salesforce Customer Success Platform.

With HP and Salesforce a part of the SCI ecosystem, Verizon now connects securely to six leading cloud service providers (Amazon, Google, HP, Microsoft, Salesforce and Verizon), enabling enterprises to rapidly scale and use multiple cloud services via a pay-as-you-go model. 

Enterprises using cloud services from HP or Salesforce will be able to tap into Verizon’s world-class networking solution that features dynamic bandwidth allocation, strong security (encryption), application performance throughput and quality of service options. Rapid, on-demand provisioning reduces deployment time and maintenance requirements for Verizon SCI customers. 

According to Verizon’s recently released “State of the Market: Enterprise Cloud 2014” report, 65 percent of enterprises are now using cloud technology and are increasingly moving more complex and mission-critical workloads to this environment. 

The report also found that enterprises will continue to use a mixture of providers, partly to benefit from the “best-of-breed” values that different providers offer, and partly to avoid “putting all their eggs in one basket.”  Cloud providers must recognize that for most enterprises they’re just one part of an interconnected and federated ecosystem of providers.
