Lumen Expands Edge Computing Options


Many organizations are making edge computing solutions a priority. According to an IDC survey, almost three-fourths of organizations use a fully manage or co-managed edge solution, and 67% of organizations have an edge solution in production. Edge computing lowers cost, provides security and data protection and enables operational continuity even if network access is interrupted.

Lumen continues to invest in edge computing on the Lumen platform as it gives businesses more choice on where they can deploy applications and workloads at the edge, closer to digital interactions.

Lumen Edge Virtual Machines give businesses access to on-demand compute, storage and secure networking to run their next-generation applications with high performance and at scale.

Lumen Edge VM offers shared, multi-tenant servers hosted in Lumen edge facilities for customers to create virtual machines on-demand for adding, updating and deleting workloads and applications. Businesses will rapidly spin up virtual machines at the edge and easily scale up or down. Infrastructure and network services are fully managed by Lumen.

Lumen Edge VM offers support for multiple operating systems and a wide range of configurations and storage using open-source technology. Lumen Edge VM can be managed through Lumen Edge Orchestrator, alongside other Lumen edge services and public cloud services from AWS, Microsoft and Google.

“With Lumen Edge VM, businesses have a flexible, on-demand compute solution on the Lumen platform,” said Dave Cooper, senior vice president, edge computing, Lumen Technologies. “It gives the power of orchestration and connectivity across hybrid IT environments, providing a unique combination of benefits.”

Lumen Edge VM is available on the Lumen Marketplace and integrates seamlessly with the company's comprehensive edge portfolio. The as-a-service solution helps businesses lower expenses with a pay only for usage model across a range of compute requirements and no capital expenditure required.
