Admin Re selects NTT Communications for large-scale IT as a service

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has signed a new five-year agreement with closed life and health insurance book manager Admin Re to provide IT managed services, hybrid cloud and data center services initially in the UK, the company said.

Admin Re is part of the Swiss Re group, a global reinsurer in the Fortune Global 500.
The company´s IT strategy consolidates services from both its own data centers and those provided by existing outsourced contracts, to NTT Com´s managed service model.

Admin Re´s outsourced IT services will be migrated to NTT Com´s managed private cloud service, beginning in late 2016. This will be followed by migration of Admin Re´s own data center services to NTT Com´s colocation environment. NTT Com will move additional applications from Admin Re´s legacy workloads to existing private or public clouds as well as emerging public PaaS or SaaS models. In total, over three thousand servers will be migrated.

NTT Communications Corporation is the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (NYSE: NTT). The company provides consultancy, architecture, security and cloud services to optimize the information and communications technology (ICT) environments of enterprises.
