NTT Com supports Microsoft Azure Stack

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (TYO: 9432), is an early supporter of Microsoft Azure Stack across both Europe and the USA to provide customers with full migration and outsourcing skills in readiness for the Microsoft product launch, currently due in September 2017, the company said.

Azure Stack is designed to bring many of the features of the Azure cloud computing platform into the enterprise data center, providing hybrid cloud customers with the flexibility and innovation capabilities designed to meet the business objectives of those adopting a data transformation strategy.

In strategic partnerships based on hardware server technology from Dell EMC and HPE, NTT Com will provide managed services through NTT Com Managed Services, the global managed services arm of NTT Com, on top of Azure and Azure Stack, delivering a one-stop shop for managed hybrid cloud services. NTT Com already has managed service customers on the Azure platform and is now preparing for Microsoft Azure Stack, to provide a seamless transition for customers who want to leverage this technology as soon as it becomes available.
