The new offering aligns seamlessly with our corporate strategy, which focuses on providing innovative cloud-based solutions and services to our customers,” he says.

CenturyLink says its cloud platform provides key benefits for Data#3, offering enterprise-grade Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), delivered through a pay-as-you-go model that is designed to best meet enterprise requirements for reliability, performance, and security.

The company says their cloud-based solutions allow organisations to better achieve success in their pursuit of digital transformation.
