NTT America Announces U.S. Enterprise Cloud Solution

NTT America, Inc., a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, today announced that it is leveraging OpSource's cloud capabilities, the NTT Communications' Global IP Network and NTT America's highly secure data center infrastructure to deliver an enterprise-grade, multi-tenant public cloud solution to its customers in the U.S. market.

The NTT America Cloud is an extension of the company's suite of virtualization services based on the best-of-class VMware virtualization platform. Satisfying the immediate needs of a public cloud offering for U.S. enterprise customers, this local service implementation complements the global virtualization service announced earlier by NTT Communications. The NTT America Cloud offers enterprises the ability to rapidly build, deploy and manage their own networks and servers in a highly secure environment. It supports multiple operating systems, including Windows, Red Hat and CentOS, and is backed by an industry-leading SLA which includes a 100% uptime guarantee.

Customers will have the ability to rapidly provision dedicated VLAN's; configure firewalls, deploy server environments and manage those environments from anywhere in the world. Customers can configure and turn on resources as needed, and shut them down when they are no longer required, making the solution highly scalable and cost-effective. All of this can be controlled via a self service portal or automated through an API.

The NTT America Cloud is built to run enterprise-class software as a service (SaaS) and web applications, and is ideal for customers who are developing applications and/or seeking flexible solutions to deploy computing power on demand. The service enables customers to create as many private networks as are needed, each with their own firewalls, to keep test and development environments separate. It also allows them to develop and test their applications in the same VMware environment the application will run in, and allows testing of applications in the exact configuration that future users will utilize.

"We are excited to offer the NTT America Cloud to our customers, as it demonstrates our commitment to providing them with a complete and highly competitive portfolio of hosting options and solutions," said Doug McMaster, Vice President, Product & Solutions. "With NTT America, our customers can be assured we have the products and services to meet their hosting needs, and are continuing to invest in 'best of breed' platforms and technologies to deliver the quality and comprehensiveness they have come to rely on."

"The OpSource Cloud capabilities combine the flexibility, availability and community of the public cloud with the security, performance and control the enterprise needs," said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. "By pairing OpSource Cloud's technology with NTT America's secure data center infrastructure, companies can take advantage of a solution that is not only powerful and completely reliable but scalable, removing any remaining barriers to enterprises adopting cloud computing today."

Components of NTT America Cloud include: CPU Hours; RAM Hours; Storage Hours; Networks (per hour per additional network); Inbound Bandwidth (per GB); Sub-Administrators (per hour per additional admin). Services are available on a Month-To-Month, Pay-As-You-Go basis with no annual commitment. Customers may also select pre-paid monthly plans at reduced rates with overages paid on a Pay-As-You-Go basis.
