- Reliable, Low-cost Cloud Services via Distributed System of U.S. & Japan Datacenters -
TOKYO, JAPAN - NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), a data, cloud and international communications leader within the NTT (NYSE: NTT) Group, announced today that in cooperation with Verio, its U.S.-based group company, a range of Cloudn public cloud services previously available only from NTT Com's East Japan Datacenter will be newly offered through a U.S. datacenter beginning March 6.
The new Cloudn services and features will support the growth of global businesses, including the expansion of electronic commerce-originated websites for U.S. customers, and offer increased reliability due to redundant U.S.-Japan system distribution.
Specific services will include Compute (FLAT Type), simple-, low-cost virtual servers connecting directly to the internet with global IP addresses; functions for increasing/decreasing virtual server resources automatically and in real time; Load Balancing Advanced (LBA) for balancing traffic among multiple virtual servers; Monitoring of virtual server components; and Auto Scaling of virtual servers according to set policies (please see Attachment 1 for more information).
Load Balancing Advanced (LBA), Monitoring and Auto Scaling can be combined to maintain optimum resources at all times, ensuring efficient management of infrastructure for websites, content distribution and other services subject to sudden spikes in access.
