NTT to Strengthens its Hybrid and Multicloud Strategies in Hong Kong
NTT Ltd., a world-leading global technology services provider, announced its expanded partnership with Megaport, a global leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, with the deployment of a Megaport Point of Presence (PoP) at its Tai Po Data Center in Hong Kong, to further support hybrid and multicloud strategies for enterprises.
Hybrid and multicloud deployment are predicted to dominate the market as cloud will continue to be the platform for emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and Internet-of-Things (IoT). Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has largely facilitated the demand for remote working and enterprises’ dependence on cloud. Thus robust connectivity to multiple cloud service providers plays a critical role in application performance, security and user experience.
Through this expanded partnership, NTT Ltd.’s data center clients in the region can establish direct, scalable, and secure connections to multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) including Alibaba Cloud, Amazon Web Service (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Nutanix Xi Cloud, Salesforce and SAP, via a single port that supports multiple virtual connections, allowing businesses to rapidly and flexibly connect to their choice of cloud and can simplify the building of hybrid and multicloud infrastructure.
NTT Ltd.’s Global Data Centers division operates a data center platform spanning 20+ countries and regions with over 500,000 square metres of colocation space across more than 160 data centers, each holding industry leading design and operational credentials. In addition to USA, the UK and Germany, NTT Ltd. provides cloud connect service in partnership with Megaport across Asia Pacific, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
