To meet increasing data center demands, Verizon will begin using Mesosphere’s Datacenter Operating System (DCOS) later this year to significantly improve automation, scalability and efficiency when deploying applications, services and big data infrastructure.
Mesosphere DCOS, which is based on the open source cluster manager Apache Mesos, would allow Verizon to accelerate deployment of new products and services for a wide range of products and services including connected devices and machines, video services, Internet services, storage and mobile applications, as well as big data and analytics.
With Mesosphere DCOS, Verizon Labs developers will be able to operate the entire data center as a single cohesive entity. As a result, Verizon will be able to automatically scale services up and down to handle the dynamic needs of millions of customers.
“Verizon is committed to unleashing the full potential of open source, data center cluster technology and cloud applications for the highest possible customer experience,” said Kumar Vishwanathan, vice president and chief technologist for Verizon Labs. “Mesosphere DCOS gives Verizon the foundation to create far-reaching benefits by increasing our ability to quickly launch new products and services while reducing the IT requirements in our data centers.”
A Fortune 15 company with more than $127 billion in 2014 revenues, Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ) is headquartered in New York and employs a workforce of 178,500.
