Business Applications

CenturyLink Cloud was purpose-built for the full range of business apps – collaboration, legacy, greenfield, and more.


All signs point to continued cloud adoption in the years ahead. And as organizations mature their strategy, many are looking for more refined alternatives. Specifically, people like you are looking for cloud services that are natively equipped to handle advanced enterprise requirements.

That’s where the CenturyLink Cloud fits in. Whether you’re looking to offload a few virtual machines or migrate a larger chunk of your enterprise workload, our infrastructure and management tools offer you a more enterprise-ready path to the cloud.

Business Applications Best Suited to the CenturyLink Cloud

CenturyLink's cloud services – infrastructure, AppFog Platform-as-a-Service, our Runner infrastracture automation service, and powerful built-in cloud management capabilities – are designed to support a variety of business apps.

Web Apps

Virtual servers from CenturyLink Cloud offer native load balancing and other features to ensure maximum uptime for your online properties. Our products offer stringent security and compliance for online payments and user data. Our platform-as-a-service, AppFog, can help accelerate the software development lifecycle and increase efficiency for developers of cloud-native applications as well. We also have an infrastructure automation tool — Runner — which facilitates provisioning, interaction and modification of IT environments, in any cloud or data center.

New, Cloud-Native Enterprise Applications

Creating new apps without violating IT policies can be harder than it looks.
