The CloudBees enterprise platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering is now available on the new Verizon Cloud.
Verizon Cloud was announced last October and is now in public beta. It includes an IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) platform, Verizon Cloud Compute; and an object-based storage service, Verizon Cloud Storage.
These two services, said Verizon, are built for the enterprise but "nimble enough to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses, individual IT departments and software developers".
