NTT Communications migrates to cloud using SDN

NTT Communications has launched what it claims to be the world’s first software-defined networking (SDN)-based cloud migration service, the On-premises Connection.

It said it is rolling out the service, designed to connect customer’s on-premise systems with NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud using the internet and SDN technology on July 28 in Japan and later in other markets worldwide.

The service connects on-premises systems and cloud in the same network segment using SDN-compatible gateway equipment installed in the customer’s system.

NTT said this approach substantially reduces the workload normally required to design and configure on-premises networks.

Once in the cloud environment, NTT said customers can continue to use the existing IP addresses of their on-premises systems which further reduces workload.

NTT said the service ensures that encrypted data is transferred between on-premises systems and Enterprise Cloud via the Internet at up to 100 Mbps.

It said SDN technology enables customers to make changes such as adjusting bandwidth to transfer large data in off-peak hours fast, and allows them to use their existing Internet connection lines for cloud migration if required.

The service is offered on a pay-per-use basis with an initial fee of 231,000 yen, including the cost of installing gateway equipment at the customer’s site and a daily charge of 11,718 yen, with a maximum monthly charge of 234,150 yen.

NTT Communications recently opened its NTT Innovation Institute in California, which is designed to carry out research into SDN technologies.

NTT Innovation Institute COO Eiji Kuwana said at the opening that cloud migration was one of the biggest challenges NTT hoped to address by using SDN.

“We understand that moving data between data centers and managing that well, not only within a country but especially when you go outside a country, is a very important thing for us to consider,” Kuwana said.

DatacenterDynamics will have more on NTT’s innovations around the software-defined network in our next edition of FOCUS – Issue 30 – which looks at the software defined data center, out next week. Sign up for your digital edition here.

    This week on White Space, we look at the safest data center locations in the world, as rated by real estate management firm Cushman & Wakefield. It will come as no surprise that Iceland comes out on top, while the US and the UK have barely made the top 10. French data center specialist Data4 is promoting Paris as a global technology hub, where it is planning to invest at least €100 million. Another French data center owned by Webaxys is repurposing old Nissan Leaf car batteries in partnership with Eaton. Brexit update: We’ve also heard industry body TechUK outline an optimistic vision of Britain outside the EU – as long as the country remains within the single market and subscribes to the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation.

  • Powering Big Data with Big Solar

    The data center industry is experiencing explosive growth. The expansion of online users and increased transactions will result in the online population to reach 50% of the world’s projected population, moving from 2.3 billion in 2012 to an expected 3.6 billion people by 2017. This growth is requiring data centers to address the carbon impact of their business and to integrate more renewable resources into their projects. Join First Solar to learn: -Why major C&I companies are looking to utility-scale solar as a viable addition to their energy sourcing portfolios. -How cost-effective utility-scale solar options can support datacenters in securing renewable supply. -Case study of how a major data center player implemented solar into their portfolio

    John has worked in the Telecommunications and Information Transport Systems (ITS) industry for over 35 years, beginning his career at the London Stock Exchange as a BT telecommunication technician. Believing there was a general lack of quality in the ITS industry, John was driven to "professionalize" the ITS industry – starting with a professional diploma programme for the Telecommunications Managers Association – which led to him becoming the first BICSI RCDD in the UK and soon after, a BICSI Master Instructor teaching RCDD and Technician programmes.
