Philippine Telecom Provider to Offer Enterprise Cloud Solution Through NTT Communications
July 31, 2014
The Philippines has become a hot spot for growing businesses and entrepreneurship because of many policy changes made in recent years. This new business melting pot created a higher demand for cloud products that would enhance business processes and keep competition strong.
The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT (News - Alert)) has just filled some of this demand by entering into a partnership with NTT Communications Corporation, an ICT solutions provider. As part of this partnership, PLDT will be able to offer its enterprise customers an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution called Enterprise Cloud.
NTT (News - Alert)'s Enterprise Cloud lets enterprise users access virtual data centers through a customizable customer portal. The data centers are composed of servers residing the U.S., U.K., Germany, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. It's a fully functional virtual private cloud that allows customers to access things like VPN connectivity and computational resources through highly secure channels. Add software defined networking on top of this, and it's a very enticing offer for companies that wish to expand but don't have the resources to manage their own data centers.
PLDT EVP Eric R. Alberto said, “We are very pleased to offer this highly value-added IaaS solution to clients through our new partnership. NTT Com provides optimum ICT solutions for multinationals operating out of the Philippines, and for Philippine corporations who choose to go global. With this partnership between NTT Com and PLDT, our clients may now capitalize on PLDT's local accessibility and interfacing, and also seamless, high-quality cloud services.”
In addition to all of the software benefits, NTT also offers a strong hardware infrastructure in many countries, allowing businesses operating from the Philippines to expand onto the areas where the data centers are located to get an optimum amount of juice through their networks.
