NTT America, a wholly owned US subsidiary of NTT Communications, and OpSource have announced their intention to enhance the adoption of enterprise cloud computing by powering OpSource cloud, a cloud offering bringing together the flexibility, availability and community of the public cloud with the security, performance and control the enterprise requires, through NTT America’s secure data centres and Tier-1 global IP network.
By combining the collaborative strength of OpSource Cloud with NTT America’s enterprise services, companies can deploy a cloud offering via secure data centres and reliable and scalable network available, the companies claim.
Reportedly, OpSource cloud is designed to allow IT departments to manage their security within their internal IT infrastructure. It provides users with a virtual private cloud within the public cloud, allowing them to determine their own degree of internet connectivity. It also offers online sign-up, pay by the hour usage, and online communities.
Kazuhiro Gomi, COO of NTT America, said: “Our portfolio of infrastructure assets gives us the opportunity to provide the most flexible allocation of those assets for our customers. The combination of OpSource Cloud and NTT America’s global IP network and data centres removes barriers that are keeping enterprises from adopting cloud computing, giving them a solution that is not only reliable and secure but scalable.”
Treb Ryan, CEO of OpSource, said: “Offering OpSource Cloud on NTT America’s infrastructure lets us bring our customers a tried-and-true network already being used by some of the largest Internet companies in the world. NTT America’s market-leading position helps reassure enterprises that their data is in the best hands possible and, working together, we will help these companies usher in the new era of enterprise cloud computing.”
