NTT Communications and VMware expand global cloud partnership

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com)band VMware announced an expansion of the companies’ decade-long cloud partnership whereby NTT Com will now offer the Enterprise Cloud (ECL) powered by VMware Cloud Foundation service globally. 

This new service will deliver advanced hybrid cloud environments consisting of VMware’s full software-defined data centre stack, and enable a frictionless path to the hybrid cloud through the inclusion of VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension. 

As part of this announcement, NTT Com will also become a VMware Cloud Verified Partner and will display the VMware Cloud Verified logo as proof that its services are compatible with VMware cloud infrastructure.

By combining ECL powered by VMware Cloud Foundation with NTT Com’s global MPLS service, Arcstar Universal One (UNO) and Nexcenter data centres, the new service will enable enterprises to securely and easily transit to the cloud, or provide a consistent hybrid cloud infrastructure across on-premises data centres and the cloud.

NTT Com SVP Masaaki Moribayashi says, “In the midst of digital transformation, enterprises are accelerating cloud shift from their own on-premises to cloud.

“This service is the solution, on top of our partnership, that will help enterprises in transitioning their applications to the cloud.”

“I'm confident in the comfort that customers can feel using our more secure and high-quality services backed by our combined capabilities, this announcement builds on more than a decade of collaboration in the cloud between NTT Com and VMware, as we continue to create new value and deliver it to mutual customers.”

The VMware Cloud Verified designation gives customers confidence that these providers are adopting the most complete and advanced VMware technologies from their cloud service providers, assuring the greatest degree of interoperability across clouds and the greatest advantage for their business. 

VMware Cloud Verified partners such as NTT Com supposedly fuel business growth by driving innovation, improving efficiency and lowering costs for customers as they transform application portfolios for a multi-cloud, multi-device world.

VMware SVP Ajay Patel says, “Cloud service providers play a critical role in the digital transformation of enterprises by enabling highly secure global reach, complemented by specialised local delivery capability.

“VMware’s collaboration with NTT Communications reflects our shared commitment to and vision of enabling customers to adopt the cloud seamlessly and securely while maximising investments in existing software, tools and talent.”

“We are delighted to have NTT Com offer a compatible VMware Cloud Verified hybrid cloud solution."
