TOKYO, JAPAN – NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced today that it will exhibit its global capabilities in cloud computing and virtualization, and also hold a breakout session on these topical subjects, during VMworld Europe 2010 in Copenhagen, Denmark from October 12 to 14.

NTT Com’s exhibit (Booth No. 14) will feature advanced services and technologies available from the comprehensive ICT service provider, including:

  • Global Virtualization Service (GVS), provided in Europe, Asia and the United States to enable companies to easily deploy virtualized systems in a secure environment using a comprehensive array of virtualization services via NTT Com’s global network of premium data centers.
  • Smart Media Delivery (SMD), a complete solution for both live and on-demand streaming of video and audio content, encompassing the entire streaming value chain from signal acquisition, encoding, multi-format transcoding and streaming to customized web player interface design. It also enables advertising to be inserted into both live and on-demand streaming.
  • Group company Integralis’s managed security services, such as early-detection security systems for virtualized IT environments.

“It will be a great pleasure to demonstrate and explain our cutting-edge cloud computing and virtualization services to customers from Europe and beyond at VMworld Europe 2010,” said Mr. Masaaki Moribayashi, Managing Director of NTT Europe.

NTT Com will host a 60-minute breakout session on October 13 (Room 18, 10:30am – 11:30am) featuring Mr. Moribayashi, Ms. Lydia Leong, Senior Analyst, Gartner, Inc., a world-leading information technology research and advisory company, and Mr. Tristan Brandt, Managing Director of NTT Com customer Lebara, the Mobile News Awards’ MVNO of the Year 2009.

The session will enable visitors to learn more about NTT Com’s virtualization infrastructure and other global capabilities, recent research into cloud computing, marketplace forecasts, latest trends in the U.S., practical experiences of suppliers who are taking the lead in this growing field, and the strategic selection of NTT Com as a key outsourcing partner.

Ms. Leong will provide a practical overview of implementing infrastructure via either the public or outsourced private cloud, including how to evaluate vendors, address security concerns, choose the right service levels and SLAs, and create hybrid solutions incorporating legacy infrastructure.

Mr. Brandt will explain how his company’s massive growth led to a strategic decision to outsource and centralize ICT functions, and how virtualization and application management provide the foundations for further growth and profitability. He said, “Our infrastructure choices and strategic ICT decisions, including partnership with NTT Com, have been central to our rapid expansion into eight countries since 2001, and are vital to our next phase of growth. I will be happy to share how we have achieved our goals, including through effective partnerships.”
