Verizon Digital Media Services Integrates Microsoft Azure Storage
April 18, 2017
LOS ANGELES—Verizon Digital Media Services announced that it is
extending its relationship with Microsoft to make cloud-based storage from
Microsoft Azure available to all Verizon Digital Media Services Edgecast
Content Delivery Network users. Azure Storage will now power Verizon
Store, the cloud-based origin storage offering on the Edgecast CDN, providing a convenient option for scalable object
Edgecast CDN customers can take advantage of Azure Storage as part of a
single platform from only one vendor. Verizon Digital Media Services maintains
a simple billing model closely aligned with customers’ monetization models,
charging on volume stored, and not on transactions, transfers or egress costs.
Verizon Digital Media Services and Microsoft already feature customized
APIs within each other’s platforms and highly integrated network
interconnections that allow the two platforms to seamlessly work together.
Azure and the Edgecast CDN integrated in 2014 and a number of Microsoft web
properties, including Xbox and Skype, utilize the Edgecast CDN.
