Verizon Launches Management System For Server Operating Systems

Wasting no time in the launch of its Verizon Business unit, Verizon Communications announced Wednesday the inauguration of a management system for server operating systems called Remote Internet Protocol Application Management Service Basic.

The new offering enables IT customers to use the service in a variety of ways ranging from their own locations, third party locations, or from one of Verizon's more than 100 data centers.

"From process monitoring to file system space-management, Verizon Business tracks issues that may hamper the performance of the customer's critical IT infrastructure at the operating system level," said a Verizon Business statement. "When a problem is detected -- day or night -- Verizon Business works closely with customers to manage hardware and operation system issues, including identification, verification, diagnosis, resolution, tracking, escalation, and documenting problems."

As examples, Verizon Business said the service can remotely monitor and manage basic IT infrastructure and operating systems like Microsoft Windows and Sun Solaris.

The Verizon Business unit was launched in January after parent Verizon Communications acquired MCI.
