NTT Communications Offers Immediate Self-management Of Cloud, Network On Oct. 8

NTT Communications Corp. or NTTCom, the ICT solutions and international communications business within the Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp. or NTT (NTT), announced Wednesday that the customer portal of its Enterprise Cloud service will offer immediate on-demand management of cloud-connected Internet and VPN circuits. It will also offer cloud-based settings for server and network segments in virtual servers, beginning October 8.

In addition to adding/subtracting server resources, the service will enable changes in connected circuit bandwidth, the addition of network segments, and changes in VPN circuit-routing information. There will be no charge for these functions.

The company said the operation of cloud ICT infrastructure requires the cloud and network to be managed on a unified basis. In many cases, however, changes are not reflected immediately and cannot be centralized.

Until now, network operations within ICT infrastructure have been relatively burdensome in terms of workload and limited flexibility, unlike server resources. In the near future, however, Enterprise Cloud will enable enterprises to accelerate business expansion and reduce workload by directly managing network settings, including VPN and Internet circuits, as well as existing settings for items such as compute resources, storage and network machines such as firewalls, the company noted.
