See how Edge Private Cloud supplies private cloud security with public cloud flexibility
The growing reliance on cloud computing to support IT infrastructure and run business applications means a need for simple, secure, scalable platforms. To achieve that combination without increasing latency, many are looking towards the next generation of cloud technology through edge solutions.
Chris McReynolds, VP of product management, Cloud Edge at Lumen, discusses how Lumen® Edge Private Cloud brings together compute, storage and network visualization into a natively integrated stack that transforms the data center to meet the demands of the digital age.

As demand for data grows at the cloud edge, businesses need an ecosystem designed to address a range of application needs while keeping costs under control. At Lumen, our advanced edge infrastructure allows us to do what most providers can’t—deliver multiple high-performance, cost-effective and secure solutions on a single platform.
Lumen® Edge Bare Metal provides the raw computing power and connectivity application builders need, supported by a flexible, pay-as-you-grow model and one of the most deeply peered IP networks in the world.
Lumen® Edge VM takes this a step further, delivering flexible compute and storage, plus additional integration with network and security capabilities. Designed for near-zero latency, Edge VM is ideal for developers running and scaling workloads at the edge with ultra-low latency requirements.
Lumen® Edge Private Cloud layers in familiar virtualization and container management platforms like VMWare and Red Hat. This helps developers focus less on infrastructure and more on what they care about—building, testing and deploying amazing apps on a platform designed for faster performance.
Whatever your need, our open orchestration makes it easy to optimize and deploy solutions across our edge infrastructure, the underlying networks and your own public clouds. And by building and deploying your edge applications on a single platform, you don’t have to worry about where your workloads are deployed. You simply select the best location that delivers the performance, scale and security your application needs, and let the platform take care of the rest.
