Cloud computing and

virtualization solutions


NTT Communications believes cloud services should integrate into the overall ICT solution, appropriate. Our cloud computing and virtualization solutions provide the flexibility, infrastructure and applications that underpin the success of your business. Cloud computing has long promised many advantages over traditional hosting by delivering a cost effective way to scale computing resources on demand. Until now, cloud solutions have failed to provide the security, performance and control vital for today’s enterprise applications. From virtualized servers running on dedicated hardware to true ‘Public’ cloud on a global platform, we deliver ICT solutions to suit the needs of any global enterprise.

NTT Communications’ extremely reliable, high performance, SLA guaranteed global network, offers a truly scalable infrastructure-as-a-service. You no longer need to deploy and manage your own expensive infrastructure and facilities as you can now build a cloud platform through the intuitive customer portal, enabling complete control and any-where management of your cloud solution. NTT Communications owns and operates the world’s top-ranked Tier 1 global IP backbone enabling unrivalled connectivity between data center sites across the globe.



TT Communications’ virtualization services enable the resources of a single physical server, such as CPU, memory and storage, to be shared by multiple virtual servers. Integration of These virtualized hosting services are fully integrated with your customer portal, enabling you to

Service plans

NTT Communications’ OpSource powered public cloud offers two types of service plans: Pay-on-demand: buy access to the public cloud in hourly increments. With no long term commitment or minimum fees, only pay for the CPU and RAM used while the server is running Monthly pre-pay: make budgeting easier and enjoy additional savings by buying monthly blocks of usage. Only charged for the CPU and RAM when the server is actually running.

Development, test and pre-production environments

Virtualization is ideal for developing a new concept or an early test release as it enables you to set up and change virtual machines quickly, isolated from the live production environment. This is particularly useful during application development where issues such as memory leaks can adversely affect other server processes. Set up times are minimised in a virtualized environment as CPU, memory and storage space can be allocated through automated online systems. NTT Communications offers an option to rent virtual servers on an hourly, daily or monthly basis in order to support the unique requirements of the pre-production stage of development.

Why consider cloud computing?

Corporate environmental commitments

By reducing the number of physical servers it is possible to reduce the overall

environmental impact associated with dedicated physical machines. This in turn leads to a reduction in the environmental footprint of an ICT solution.

Virtualization makes better use of the physical server and the energy it consumes by hosting several virtual instances on a single piece of hardware. Instead of a single server for a single application, virtualization enables two or more applications per single server. This uses the resources and compute power of the data center in a
