NTT Communications Expands Enterprise Cloud's Service Areas and Functions for Conventional and Cloud-native ICT Environments
Three new areas in Japan/overseas and additional enterprise functions
TOKYO, JAPAN --- NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT (NYSE: NTT) Group, announced today that it has expanded the geographic availability and service menu of its Enterprise Cloud service for hosted-private and multi-tenant clouds. The three new service areas — West Japan ("JP2"), Hong Kong ("HK1") and Germany ("DE1") — are available immediately. New functions in the existing East Japan ("JP1") area will include the sequential additions of vSphere ESXi and block storage with guaranteed IO performance (see attachment for prices).
New Areas and JP1's New Functions
Newly Added Areas
Users in the newly added areas of East Japan (JP2), Hong Kong (HK1) and Germany (DE1) will have full access to Enterprise Cloud's hosted private cloud and the compute functions of its multi-tenant cloud based on the OpenStack open-source cloud platform. Useful functions include monitoring and block storage for logical networks.
Newly Added Functions in JP1
- vSphere ESXi hypervisor for private cloud
Resources can be flexibly and speedily changed and managed with vSphere ESXi installed on an Enterprise Cloud bare-metal server. VMware's virtual environment can still leverage operations for existing environments and management software after shifting to Enterprise Cloud.
- Block storage with 4 IOPS/GB
This new function offers block storage with high-performance 4 IOPS/GB based on the Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) protocol for TCP/IP data transfers. Capacity ranging from 100GB to 12,000GB is available for high-speed databases and external storage for big data analysis. Stable environments are not influenced by other data loads.
Going forward, NTT Com continue supporting customer innovation by offering enhanced seamless global ICT solutions, including conventional and cloud-native ICT functions and managed services. Specific plans include expanded functions for VMware solutions for conventional ICT, strengthened open-source functions for cloud-native ICT, additional OpenStack components, and virtual private clouds based on the Cloud Foundry open-source cloud-computing platform. Managed services will be strengthened for cloud management platforms. By upgrading functions for unified management of new SDx services, such as SD-Exchange, SD-WAN and SD-LAN, NTT Com aims to offer customers total outsourcing of their ICT environments.
