PARIS and MADRID, September 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Cloud services in four European locations to offercustomers choice in meeting data sovereignty needs
NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within NTT (NTT), announced today the immediate availability of its Enterprise Cloud solution in two new locations in Europe - Paris and Madrid. Europe's strict data protection laws mean that the location where data is hosted is as important as its security. The expansion of Enterprise Cloud allows NTT Com's current and future customers to choose from four key locations within Europe offering flexibility and choice in housing their data.
The addition of Spain and France has increased the total number of Enterprise Cloud data centers to 14 across the world and makes cloud services more accessible to businesses in this region where demand for cloud IT infrastructure has been growing. NTT Com backs its Enterprise Cloud services with a solid infrastructure base - 130 data centers across the globe, and the third largest data center operator in Europe.
"Providing real-world cloud solutions and being truly enterprise class is what differentiates NTT Com. This Enterprise Cloud expansion makes us the perfect partner for organisations that require cloud-migration support and complete cloud-lifecycle services in Spain and France. The local presence further lets us address concerns around data sovereignty which are big issues, particularly in Europe," said Masaaki Moribayashi, MD of NTT Europe Ltd.
Enterprise Cloud has been awarded "Challenger" status in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, Europe published in June 2015. Advantages of Enterprise Cloud include the following:
- Cost optimization: Customers only pay for what they use.
- Flexible and scalable compute resources:Computing power is guaranteed in increments of 1 GHz CPU, 1 GB storage and 1 GB memory.
