NTT Communications, the global data and IP services arm of telecom company NTT (NYSE:NTT), has announced the launch of Multi-Cloud Connect – an optional feature on NTT Com’s Arcstar Universal One MPLS Network that enables enterprises to access third party public cloud services.
While enterprise adoption of cloud services continues to accelerate, many of these services are public cloud-based and accessed via the Internet. Inconsistent Internet performance would be a major impediment to widespread cloud adoption.
Multi-Cloud Connect will address these performance issues by connecting the Arcstar Universal One MPLS network directly to public cloud service provider platforms, such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Multi-Cloud Connect will initially offer direct access to Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud platforms in Tokyo on August 26th, 2015, followed by London later this year.
NTT Com’s Multi-Cloud Connect Service Highlights:
- Multi-Cloud Connect connects to Microsoft Azure and AWS cloud platforms via a security-enhanced, private Layer 3 connection, not via the Internet.
- After initial launches in Tokyo and London, NTT Comn’s Multi-Cloud Connect solution will continue to expand globally to other parts of Asia and to North America.
- Leveraging its 130 self-owned data centers worldwide, NTT Com can provide customers with a hybrid solution that suits their different application needs: whether it’s a mix of on-premise, private cloud (Enterprise Cloud) and/or public cloud.
