  • Edge Computing

    Edge computing is the new approach that offers the TCO benefits of cloud computing with the performance of on-premises IT. Lumen is helping companies rise to the occasion — with Lumen Edge Private Cloud running on VMware Cloud Foundation, a hybrid cloud platform built on full stack hyperconverged infrastructure.

    Lumen Edge Private Cloud with VMware Tanzu enables enterprises to speed deployment cycles by deploying software and workloads fast with a modern software supply chain from development to operations. Modernize app development by simplifying lifecycles with self-service and automation tools to run modern apps and centrally manage machines and clusters. Accelereate Kubernetes enterprise adoption and address the Day 1 and Day 2 Kubernetes operations burdens using a complete, easy-to-upgrade Kubernetes runtime with pre-integrated and validated components.
  • Work-from-anywhere

    The Lumen platform combined with VMware capabilities support next-gen applications and technologies that are no longer constrained by the IT architectures of the past. By leveraging SASE, we can provide secure, reliable and optimized access to next gen applications for mobile clients and branch location with a single solution.
  • Security

    Simplify security with integrated solutions and managed firewalls that embed high-fidelity intelligence, automatic threat detection and proactive response directly into our platform services — so you can identify and mitigate cyberattacks before they do harm.
