NTT Communications launched its Enterprise Cloud last year, and is hoping its initial successes translate globally. New locations were announced today, as the company made its cloud available worldwide through data centers in Asia, the United States, and Europe.
NTT Communications' Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based Enterprise Cloud was initially launched via data centers in Japan and Hong Kong in June 2012. Today's expansion adds Enterprise Cloud locations in Singapore, Virginia and California in the US, and England. NTT anticipates opening three more data centers in Australia, Malaysia and Thailand in March 2013.
"NTT Communications’ Enterprise Cloud is a full-layer, self-manageable virtual private cloud that is now global, and growing to incorporate virtualized networks in eight countries and nine locations by March 2013," said Motoo Tanaka, Senior Vice President of Cloud Services at NTT Communications.
NTT noted it is seeing strong interest from global enterprises who view Enterprise Cloud as a flexible extension of their own data centers, enabling them to connect existing private networks to the cloud and gain additional cost-optimized and secure compute capacity.
“NTT Com understands the enterprise client, their struggles, goals and needs," said Tanaka. “Being truly enterprise class is what makes NTT Com the leading partner of choice for client cloud transformation through comprehensive cloud lifecycle services, and is what has led us to develop this real-world cloud, built on a foundation of advisory, migration, operational and management services."
