Lumen has launched an Edge private cloud solution.

Fully managed by Lumen, the company’s new Edge Private Cloud provides pre-built infrastructure for ‘high-performance private computing’ connected to the firm’s fiber network.

"Lumen has decades of experience helping our customers implement private cloud solutions for critical workloads, and now we are extending our private cloud capabilities onto our ultra-low latency Edge platform," said Chris McReynolds, vice president of cloud Edge product management for Lumen.

McReynolds added deploying workloads close to where interactions happen can enhance experiences, enhance application performance, and improve security and control.

“With Lumen Edge Private Cloud our customers can have a customized private cloud environment running within days, with Lumen assisting with design, implementation, managed services, and security consulting," he said.

The managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service is based on VMware Cloud Foundation and Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) technology coupled with VMware Cloud Director. The company said the service can be provisioned within days and designed to meet 5 milliseconds of latency.

Lumen Edge Private Cloud is available at the company’s Edge computing locations, as well as 2,200 third-party data centers globally, on customer premises, and to VMware Cloud on AWS.
