NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the information and communications technology (ICT) solutions business within NTT Group (NYSE: NTT), today announced the availability of its global portfolio of cloud infrastructure solutions to Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) customers made possible by a partnership between HPE and NTT Com’s U.S. subsidiary, NTT America. The new NTT America and HPE partnership enables customers in the United States to buy NTT Com’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) portfolio solutions, including enterprise private, public, and hybrid cloud infrastructure - plus NTT America professional services including cloud migration services, data center consolidation, managed infrastructure services, and disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS).
These customer-oriented cloud solutions are designed to drive positive business outcomes for medium to large enterprises in the United States in vertical industries such as healthcare, finance, media, retail and manufacturing. The cloud solutions are powered by HPE technology, delivered over managed end-to-end IT infrastructure owned and operated by NTT Com, and backed by the strength and stability of the NTT Group, one of the world’s largest ICT companies. NTT Com’s world-class infrastructure delivers one of the most technologically advanced cloud portfolios available, meeting customers’ goals to achieve a strong ROI by moving to an asset-light IT model. This includes secure network coverage (VPN) in 196 countries; an extensive, high capacity Tier 1 IP network; one of the world’s largest data center footprints with 140 worldwide data centers; an enterprise-grade cloud footprint in 14 global markets with planned expansion to 15; and global operational and around-the-clock support.
Through strategic acquisitions and organic growth, and a strategy that embraces new and open technologies to provide flexible, innovative and forward thinking solutions, NTT Com is well positioned as a leading global IT provider and partner to HPE customers. NTT Com’s class-leading capabilities in enterprise cloud and network virtualization leverage the company’s industry first in commercialization of SDN/NFV enabled services on a global scale. These breakthrough architectures free businesses from upfront capital investment in IT, cut their ongoing operations costs for global expansion and make it easy to create, use and control cloud-connected enterprise networks - on-demand - to very quickly respond to opportunities and risks in today’s increasingly competitive business climate.
NTT Com’s capabilities and custom cloud solutions are well aligned to enterprise requirements for migration of their on-premises systems to cloud, maintaining hybrid cloud environments and secure access to these environments. NTT Com has a proven, efficient process based on deep experience gained from prior enterprise migrations, such as Honda, across multiple customer segments. The company’s support teams provide superior customer service and guidance regarding impact on the overall IT infrastructure before, during and after migration. NTT Com’s managed security services powered by WideAngle protect confidential information and other important corporate assets moved to the private cloud, while NTT Com’s high-performance MPLS network provides direct private connectivity to third party public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, for enhanced security and improved connectivity.
“This new partnership deepens our long-standing relationship with HPE, and allows us to combine our strengths to unlock hidden value, unleash innovation, ignite sales growth and capture opportunities in key customer segments and markets,” said Jeffrey Bannister, Executive Vice President of Global Enterprise Services, NTT America. “As one of HPE’s few global IaaS partners, we will deliver outcomes-driven cloud solutions based on integration of best of breed technologies within our infrastructure to help our joint customers stay one step ahead of their competition.”
“What was once viewed as a disruptive innovation, IaaS is now a sustained innovation with many businesses shifting to off premise solutions,” said Chuck Adams, Director, Partner Ready Service Provider Program, HPE. “NTT Com’s IaaS offers customers the option to purchase services that run applications on the latest and most efficient IT infrastructure without the overhead required to do so.”
NTT Com’s services-centric solutions are made immediately available to HPE customers through the HPE Partner Ready Program for Service Providers. The Partner Ready program will enable NTT Com and HPE to deliver solutions that help joint customers evolve to the New Style of Business. This evolution is based on four core transformation areas, all powered by HPE solutions and expertise: transform to a hybrid infrastructure, protect the digital enterprise, empower data-driven organizations, and enable workplace productivity.
