MONROE, La. – CenturyLink, Inc. today announced the commercial availability of Hyperscale high-performance server instances offered through the CenturyLink Cloud platform. The new service is designed for web-scale workloads, big data and cloud-native applications.

CenturyLink Cloud includes dozens of self-service features that help enterprises run their mission-critical and business applications in the public cloud with ease. With Hyperscale, developers can now use the same platform to launch and manage advanced next-generation apps.

Hyperscale combines CenturyLink Cloud’s high-performance compute with 100-percent flash storage to deliver a superior experience for web-scale architectures built on Couchbase, MongoDB and other NoSQL technologies. Users of the service will consistently see performance at or above 15,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for a diverse range of workloads. Hyperscale also is ideal for big data scenarios and serves as a complementary offering to CenturyLink’s existing Big Data Foundation Services.

CenturyLink today also announced expansion plans for the CenturyLink Cloud network of public cloud data centers, growing from nine to 13 locations in the first half of 2014. Starting in March, customers will be able to deploy virtual resources in Santa Clara, Calif., and Sterling, Va., with locations in Paris and the London metro market coming online in the second quarter of 2014. All CenturyLink Cloud services, including Hyperscale, will be available in these new locations.

This broad footprint offers more choice and flexibility for geo-targeted solutions and for boosting performance while ensuring data sovereignty. Customers can also deploy advanced IT configurations through the interoperability of public cloud, colocation, managed services and network solutions available through the CenturyLink Technology Solutions portfolio.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
