Orientation solutions are available to support your implementation of or migration to a variety of our services. We offer specialized orientation for CenturyLink Cloud, SafeHaven Disaster Recovery, CenturyLink Private Cloud on VMware Cloud Foundation, Cloud Application Manager and other services, either individually or in complex multi-service configurations.

CenturyLink Cloud Express Orientation

This Express Orientation Service package is custom-designed exclusively for CenturyLink Cloud. Cost-effective and expedient, it enables customers to accelerate their cloud adoption, maximize ROI, and ensure usage of the latest best practices for optimal performance and reliability of your public cloud environment.

SafeHaven Disaster Recovery Express Orientation

Disaster Recovery is a critical component of any business continuity program. But it can be an enormous challenge to identify the risks and build out a comprehensive solution. Our SafeHaven Disaster Recovery service is easy to maintain, but can be a challenge to configure initially. Our Orientation Team can take the pain out of that process, and ensure that you're getting the most out of your service.

CenturyLink Private Cloud on VMware Cloud Foundation

This service is a software-defined data center that enables full automation and self-service via vCloud Director and extensive APIs. It offers native remote console access via an IP-based KVM solution. You may engage our Orientation Team to get your team up and running, or you can engage our expert management teams to implement and maintain your private cloud solution for the full "white-glove" treatment. And underneath it all, the hypervisor and infrastructure are fully-managed.

Cloud Application Manager

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager is a flexible, multi-cloud management solution that enables IT transformation by orchestrating the delivery of infrastructure, applications and services across any cloud. This solution provides three main components essential to managing and governing cloud applications and infrastructure. You may elect to use our Orientation Team to get started, or you can choose Managed Services Anywhere to leverage a comprehensive team of ongoing support.
