NTT Communications has launched the latest version of its Enterprise Cloud this week, with immediate availability in Japan and availability in the UK, Singapore, US, Australia, Hong Kong and Germany to follow.

NTT Comm said the improvements were driven by enterprise challenges, which include having to grapple with migrating traditional ICT operations to the cloud while simultaneously deploying cloud-native applications at a rapid pace.

Based on OpenStack, the Enterprise Cloud solution includes dedicated bare-metal servers as part of its hosted private cloud service, where customers can access the automation and flexibility of a multi-hypervisor environment, NTT Comm said. With Cloud Foundry, its Enterprise Cloud PaaS is available now to customers as well.

“As enterprise businesses move towards digitalization, globalization and cloud, NTT Com will continue to help customers innovate business processes and create new business models with Enterprise Cloud, which has been enhanced to meet requirements of both secure and reliable ICT and flexible and agile ICT,” Motoo Tanaka, Senior Vice President of Cloud Services at NTT Com said in a statement.
