“We are pleased that NTT America adopted VMware vCloud™ Director to deliver enterprise-class services based on the industry-leading VMware platform,” said Dan Chu, vice president, Cloud Infrastructure and Services, VMware. “With VMware vCloud™ Director, NTT America will be able to bring customers increased datacenter efficiency and business agility by building secure, scalable, and cost-effective private clouds to deliver IT as a service.”
