Level 3 Communications (LVLT) announced the launch of Dynamic Enterprise Computing, a new data center service in Latin America that will enable customers to rapidly scale, or burst, on computing resource consumption to cover business needs as they arise. It also provides managed services for operating systems and databases. Level 3 has a large network and several data centers in Latin America.
"Level 3's new Dynamic Enterprise Computing service is a fundamentally ground-breaking new way to look at the provisioning of data center services," said Leonardo Barbero, Level 3's senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Latin America. "With this model, Level 3's Latin American customers have the ability to scale their resources as their business needs grow, improve efficiency by allocating resources where needed, and increase their security by leveraging hosting services from a provider dedicated to end-to-end protection. Level 3 Dynamic Enterprise Computing offers our customers a secure enterprise computing environment on a highly available platform, incorporating the flexibility and assurance of resources that enterprises have been seeking when choosing an infrastructure-as-a-service solution."
In an Emerging Markets Analysis Gartner found that 60 percent of enterprise IT decision-makers planned to allocate some of their 2012 external IT services budget to cloud computing related services. "Latin America's fast growing economies and businesses are demanding scalable, good quality and inexpensive telecommunications services," stated Elia San Miguel, principal research analyst at Gartner. "The region continues to look promising as a hyper-growth market because colocation, hosting and managed services have a high uptake, primarily from multinationals looking to expand their market presence."
