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.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
