LONDON, October 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

- Customer Portal Gives Users Full Control of NTT Europe's New Compute Cloud Offering

NTT Europe is today announcing the launch of its Compute Cloud service to be offered under NTT Com's BizCITY(R) concept of providing secure access to enterprise services from anyplace at anytime. Further launches into new territories are expected in Q1 2011 to enhance NTT Com's desire to provide truly global product offerings with one contract, one SLA and one customer portal.

NTT Europe has successfully been providing private cloud (Global Virtualization Services: branded BizHosting Global in Japan) and public cloud (OpSource-powered Cloud Solution) solutions. The new Compute Cloud service will further complement these existing offerings. Customers will be able to redistribute network, compute and storage resources between multiple environments, on-demand whilst maintaining high levels of security and accountability. This function allows customers to meet the needs of different types of environments such as: Live/Production, Test/Pre-production, Customer Trials, Development Playgrounds/Sandboxes, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery.

In order to control Compute Cloud, users will have a dedicated customer portal giving them the ability to remotely manage the Compute Cloud environment. Customers can deploy, configure and delete virtual machines as required, monitoring performance requirements in real time. Resources can be scaled for purpose at the click of a button, whilst a pay-as-you-go pricing structure ensures customers only pay for what they use.

Stephane Estevez, Product Marketing Manager of NTT Europe, said "The profile of the individual project or the application being put into the cloud determines the type of cloud service required. When it comes to IT infrastructure, there is always a balancing act, and it is very clear to us that it is the level of performance required of the application and its business sensitivity, not the size of the company, that determines which service is best suited. NTT Europe can design solutions of multiple cloud configurations helping customers to reap the benefits of each and manage the integration between them and existing in-house IT infrastructures."

NTT Communications is currently exhibiting at VMWorld in Copenhagen, at booth 14.
