NTT Comm to unveil SDN-based cloud migration service

NTT Communications is set to unveil software-defined networking (SDN)-based cloud migration service.

This will be the world’s first, NTT Communications said on Thursday.

The On-premises Connection will be unveiled on July 28 in Japan and later in other markets worldwide.

Enterprise CIOs will benefit as the service facilitates flexible transitions to the cloud by connecting customer on-premises systems with NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud via the Internet using SDN technology.

Features of On-premises Connection

NTT Communications says the service substantially reduces the workload normally required to design and configure on-premises networks. This apart, customers can continue to use the existing IP addresses of their on-premises systems, a further reduction of workload.

The new service enables enterprises to transfer secure, encrypted data between on-premises systems and Enterprise Cloud via the Internet at up to 100 Mbps.

Moreover, SDN technology enables customers to make changes promptly and flexibly, such as adjusting bandwidth to transfer large data in off-peak hours. Customers can even use their existing Internet connection lines for cloud migration.

NTT Communications has priced the services at an initial fee of 231,000 yen includes the cost of installing gateway equipment at the customer’s site.

The daily charge is 11,718 yen and the maximum monthly charge has a ceiling of 234,150 yen.

Internet connection from on-premises systems and two fixed global IP addresses for gateway equipment are charged separately.

Enterprise Cloud allows enterprise customers to build optimal ICT business systems in the cloud by directly controlling global ICT infrastructure via a customer portal.
