Introducing Azure Stack

Increase agility, enhance innovation and control your costs with the perfect balance between private and public cloud. Azure Stack is a new hybrid cloud solution from Microsoft that allows organizations to run Azure-consistent services in your data center, providing a cohesive, simplified development, management, and security experience. Take control of the cloud with managed Azure cloud services from NTT Communications.

Test Your Application Compatibility Today

Azure Stack provides a way to run the same applications on-premises as well as native Azure. With a consistent cloud platform, organizations can confidently make technology decisions based on business requirements, rather than business decisions based on technology complications.

You don’t have to wait until the product goes on general release. In partnership with Dell EMC, we are providing companies right now with a “batteries included” testing facility that IT Departments are leveraging to gain early advantage of Hybrid cloud using Azure Stack. Complete the contact form on this page for information on how our managed PoC really works.

Hybrid Cloud Use Cases

Azure provides a rich platform for developers to build modern applications. Some applications, however, face technological and regulatory obstacles; regulation, latency, data sensitivity, and customization needs are primary examples. Azure Stack from Microsoft unlocks new hybrid cloud use cases for both customer facing and internal line of business applications:

• Edge and disconnected locations
• Cloud applications to meet varied regulations, such as GDPR
• Hybrid Cloud application model on-premises and in the public cloud

Use Azure in combination with Azure Stack to simplify complex business challenges.

How NTT Com stacks up

Four reasons why we can ensure you get the most out of your Azure Stack investment:
1

This isn’t new to us

In addition to managing global private clouds for over 15 years, we are a Microsoft “early adopter” partner and our team of engineers have been working directly with the Microsoft Azure Stack support labs in the US for nearly a year. Making NTT Com one of the leading technical authorities on this new cloud platform.

2

It’s all about choice

On-premises or hosted; We can manage Azure Stack on customer sites or in one of our 140+ data centers dotted around the globe (twenty of which are located in Europe). If you have concerns about data sovereignty, then the chances are good that we have a DC located near you. We can even provide you with a managed high speed connect to public Azure – see point #3.

3

NTT Com are a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute partner

Leverage a much faster private network connection to Azure cloud, since ExpressRoute connections don’t go over the public internet. Giving you the advantage of guaranteed network performance. You can also leverage NTT Com’s class leading SD-WAN portfolio to connect Azure stack to your other company sites and clouds.

4

We make life simpler

NTT Com can fully manage your hybrid cloud environment, up to and including the complete Microsoft applications suite with a single contract and single service level agreement, making life much easier for our clients. This also includes your Azure “pay-per-use” licensing charges.

In summary, NTT Com’s core strengths are in high speed networks, a global footprint of data centers and providing managed hybrid cloud, making us the perfect home for your new Azure Stack deployment.

 


 

With our methodology focused entirely on delivering the business outcomes that our customers require, a typical customer cloud migration project starts with a structured assessment:

Assessment of existing infrastructure and applications.

Design and implementation of most appropriate Cloud platform Private / Public / Hybrid.

Planning of migration approach to minimize risk and cost.

Use of industry leading tools to assist in discovery, migration and optimization

All backed with the reassurance that the infrastructure is managed in a robust and systematic way in accordance with the ITIL© V3 framework and methodology.

“NTT Communications represents the type of service partner Microsoft are seeking to take Azure Stack to market and help make it viable. The fact that NTT Com realized the potential early, and committed the necessary resources to get accredited from day one, will no doubt give them an advantage to gain a foot hold in the initial market.”
