Verizon has launched its Secure Cloud Interconnect service with the goal of helping businesses connect more than one cloud seamlessly and securely.

Enterprises will be able to use Verizon's Private IP service to connect to multiple cloud services – including the Verizon cloud and Microsoft Azure – with an additional half-dozen other major cloud services expected to come online later this year.

In addition, enterprises that have located their private cloud infrastructure in Equinix data centers can directly access Verizon's Private IP service in 15 Equinix data centers in the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific.

"With Secure Cloud Interconnect, Verizon is removing the barriers for enterprise cloud adoption," said Michael Palmer, vice president of product development for Verizon. "The reality is that many organizations today use multiple clouds to meet their business and technical objectives, but there was no easy way to manage this environment until now. Our new offering uniquely gives enterprises everything they require in a multi-cloud environment – security, private connectivity, performance, simplicity and efficiency. SCI will enable a wide range of applications and use cases for organizations."

Verizon's Secure Cloud Interconnect service will offer a combination of features to enterprises, including dynamic bandwidth allocation with fully redundant connections, application performance throughput and quality of service, usage-based billing, and simple provisioning and management via a centralized portal.
