Verizon Cloud, which was announced in October 2013 and is currently in a public beta testing phase, is being outfitted prior to going into general availability with a variety of enterprise-class services, according to Verizon. The company's goal is to create an ecosystem of enterprise technologies in the cloud.
Now, one of those will be CloudBees PaaS, which is billed as a continuous-delivery PaaS that accelerates the development, integration and deployment of applications.
"We are working with best-in-class enterprise technology companies to bring additional value to our customers above the core availability, performance and security we’ve built into Verizon Cloud," said John Considine, CTO at Verizon Terremark, in a prepared statement. "CloudBees is a leading PaaS provider with an experienced team. We're pleased to formalize this longstanding relationship with CloudBees and its proven service for our customers' benefit."
CloudBees has been busy as the little insect it references in its name. The cloud provider recently named its first CTO, and in the last few months, it has announced integration with the Amazon Web Services Elastic Beanstalk and also rolled out new enterprise features on its PaaS.
Verizon has likewise been busy, and its aforementioned public cloud offering, which is the first time the company has moved out of the private cloud services business, is the first step in going head-to-head against the big boys of public cloud, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft (MSFT) Windows Azure, Google (GOOG) Cloud and Rackspace (RAX).
