NTT Com Asia Presents Full-Gear Virtualization as a Service in Hong Kong
(Hong Kong, 19 August 2009) NTT Com Asia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), today announced the official launch of Virtualization as a Service (VaaS) - the first on demand full-gear virtualization service in Hong Kong that offers integrated solutions covering remote access, security and business continuity.
The newly launched VaaS series comprises all-round virtualization solutions, ranging from Virtual Server Hosting and Virtual Infrastructure to Virtual Office, which entirely elevates the technology to the next generation. Housed in NTT Com’s Tier III+ data centre in Hong Kong and equipped with HKNet’s premium internet service “vIP-Net” powered by NTT Com Tier 1 IP backbone, the VaaS solutions ensure exceptionally speedy connectivity and high security.
The signature product Virtual Office is the best design for enterprises that manage a large number of mobile workforce and offshore office operations. Through the “MagicConnect” USB key - a highly advanced and secure remote access technology, users can access a virtual-PC environment and office applications with their remote PC anywhere, anytime.
The service is a best-effort solution to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by saving infrastructure deployment time, leveraging physical resources and providing hands-on application management and upgrades. Under VaaS, companies can save up to 50% on their IT cost compared to traditional virtualization solutions. The service fee is subject to an Operational Expenditure (OPEX) basis in which cost estimation becomes steady and predictable, while companies remain scalable and flexible to plan future business growth.
“As data security, space and manpower are the core considerations in modern IT management, virtualization is an ideal solution for most enterprises. NTT Com Asia’s Virtualization as a Service provides wide-ranging cost-saving and IT management solutions to meet the ever-changing business environment. Backed up by our world-class Tier-1 IP backbone, data centre services and the hosted applications developed by our subsidiary HKNet, we believe that this is an unprecedented total solution implemented in Hong Kong.” says Mr. Takanobu Maeda, President & CEO of NTT Com Asia.
