NTT Communications (NTT Com) today announced a partnership with Microsoft in Hong Kong to offer Hybrid Cloud Resilience Solution for businesses. This new partnership combines the NTT Communications Enterprise Cloud service, information and communications technology infrastructure, as well as Microsoft’s Azure public cloud and ExpressRoute. The integrated solution will be centrally managed by the NTT Communications and sold in Hong Kong. This solution is expected to reduce more than 55% of the cost for organizations when compared to their own backup cloud solutions.
The Hybrid Cloud Resilience Solution is ideal for enterprises that are digitally transforming their mission-critical business in a cloud first, mobile first world. Customers can run performance-driven applications and store sensitive data on NTT Communications’ private cloud or in the data centre to support their core operations, while seamlessly extending applications and data to Microsoft Azure’s innovative platform-as-a-service in Hong Kong and beyond, to enjoy boundless capacity and continuous availability. With the use of Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute’s secure tunnel, customer data does not travel over the public internet, but is directly connected through their own private connection between NTT Communications and Microsoft Azure.
“Enterprise CIOs are facing a range of challenges in the cloud adoption journey. The demand for always-on connection, peace of mind security assurance, the disruptive growth of data volumes and speed, as well as managing various cloud infrastructure and providers, are all adding complexity and difficulty to realizing cloud benefits,” said Horace Chow, General Manager of Microsoft Hong Kong.
