Recommended Workloads

The CenturyLink Cloud Platform has been orchestrated to run diverse workloads to address a wide array of business needs. The information below outlines some of the common uses for our cloud platform.

Start Trial

Storage for Cloud-Native Apps

Most new applications built on web services require the flexibility and high availability of object storage. Use Object Storage from CenturyLink to host multimedia files and much more – all featuring high availability.

Long Term Storage of Static Data

Object Storage is ideal for off-site archiving of static data. Store files for a low monthly fee, and recall them at any time using HTTP. All integrated with your CenturyLink Cloud account.

Secure, Managed File Transfer

Email is problematic for large file transfers, and many free utilities don’t offer the level of security and protection enterprises often need. Object Storage on CenturyLink Cloud is a much more secure alternative.

Ultimate Flexibility

CenturyLink’s approach to cloud storage offers more flexibility in a number of dimensions. Decide what type of storage each scenario requires, and then specify the type of automated DR/BC that’s needed to support the use case. You are not tied into a predefined scheme of “small”, “medium” or “large” instances.

Premium Storage for High I/O Access
and Data Retention

Demanding application components (for example: the data store of your database) require high I/O to deliver a compelling user experience. CenturyLink’s product catalog includes these high-end options for exactly this reason.

Dynamically Adjust Disk Size as Required

The storage requirements of any virtual machine are never static. As business needs change, the storage attributes of a deployed VM are likely to change as well. CenturyLink empowers you to do this on your own, as required.
