NTT Com, the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group, has expanded the geographic availability and service menu of its Enterprise Cloud service for hosted-private and multi-tenant clouds. The three new service areas – West Japan (‘JP2’), Hong Kong (‘HK1’) and Germany (‘DE1’) – are available immediately.
Users in the newly added areas of East Japan (JP2), Hong Kong (HK1) and Germany (DE1) will have full access to the Enterprise Cloud hosted private cloud and the compute functions of its multi-tenant cloud (based on the OpenStack open-source cloud platform). Useful functions would include monitoring and block storage for logical networks.
Newly Added Functions in JP1 would include:
- vSphere ESXi hypervisor for private cloud
- Resources can be “flexibly and speedily” changed and managed with vSphere ESXi installed on an Enterprise Cloud bare metal server. VMware’s virtual environment can still leverage operations for existing environments and management software after shifting to Enterprise Cloud.
- Block storage with 4 IOPS/GB
- This new function offers block storage with high-performance 4 IOPS/GB based on the Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) protocol for TCP/IP data transfers. Capacity ranging from 100GB to 12,000GB is available for high-speed databases and external storage for big data analysis. Stable environments are not influenced by other data loads, according to NTT Com.
