NTT Com Expands DRaaS Offering

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the information and communications technology (ICT) solutions business within the NTT Group (TYO:9432), announced that it has enhanced its Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) offering by leveraging Microsoft Azure Site Recovery, the company said.

Providing capabilities previously too expensive or complex for on-premises solutions, the new DRaaS offering enables replication of enterprise workloads to an NTT Com data center or Microsoft Azure, assuring real-time business continuity (BC) in the case of unexpected server failures or planned downtime.

One of the world´s largest cloud, network and data center providers, NTT Com has brought its global IT capabilities to DRaaS; and for the last several years, technology analysts have positioned NTT Com as one of the top providers in this space. An automated disaster recovery software solution, Microsoft Azure Site Recovery is built upon the capabilities of Azure, named by Gartner as a provider of multiple cloud categories. The integration of Azure Site Recovery within NTT Com´s managed services platform provides a powerful, flexible and affordable enterprise solution that overcomes limitations and reduces costs.

In addition to replication, NTT Com´s DRaaS offering provides full-scale planning, implementation, testing and management. As a Microsoft Gold Certified Hosting Partner with a team of Azure experts, NTT Com takes a consultative approach, providing customizable solutions that best fit an enterprise´s physical and virtualized environments, service level agreement (SLA) needs, and recovery point and recovery time objective (RPO/RTO) targets.

A one-stop shop, NTT Com fully manages a customer´s DRaaS solution, including event response, monitoring, recovery plan testing, and operation. Microsoft technology supports the offering´s expansive capabilities.

As the great cloud migration continues, enterprises are encountering new risks and finding new ways to mitigate them. Among the customers who have piloted NTT Com´s comprehensive DRaaS, powered by Microsoft Azure Site Recovery, is real estate software development company, IDC Global.

NTT Communications provides consultancy, architecture, security and cloud services to optimize the information and communications technology (ICT) environments of enterprises. These offerings are backed by the company´s worldwide infrastructure, including the global tier-1 IP network, the SD-WAN Service Portfolio reaching 196 countries/regions, and 140 secure data centers worldwide. NTT Communications´ solutions leverage the global resources of NTT Group companies including Dimension Data, NTT DOCOMO and NTT DATA.
