NTT Europe, an ICT solutions partner and wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications, today announces the availability of their Global Virtualization Services offering in NTT Com's new Singapore data centre. NTT Europefirst announced the Global Virtualization Services offering to its European customers in February, 2010, with the launch of the London, San Jose, Sterling and Hong Kong data centres.

Customers using Global Virtualization Services gain the advantages of a single point of contact for management, support and billing; and a consistent set of Virtualization Services based on NTT Communications' global infrastructure. NTT Europe's customers can quickly build and deploy solutions that enhance their business continuity planning, comply with data-handling requirements and enable them to be closer to their customers around the world.

NTT Europe's Global Virtualization Services helps enterprises and multinational corporations seeking to lower their capital expenditures through outsourcing of their server environments. Compared to building a server environment of their own, these businesses realise significant cost savings as they require far fewer servers when in a virtualized environment. NTT Europe's Global Virtualization Services achieves this though higher server utilization, rapid deployment of additional servers, rapid deployment of new applications, and enhanced management, control & reporting through the customer portal.

Customers benefit from having many geographically dispersed data centres to choose from for their hosting needs, allowing the data to reside closest to their end users for increased access speeds or for compliance requirements. Additionally, all the data centres have direct backbone connections to the NTT Com Global IP Network, providing optimal internet route access, global tier-1 backbone private peering, and leading network SLAs. The Singapore data centre is connected to other Southeast Asia regions via 6 diverse submarine cable systems. The Singapore data centre is a purpose built facility and operates under some of the most stringent data centre requirements in the country, including true 2N redundant power systems, which means that no single point of failure will interrupt the operation of the Data Centre equipment.

“With the introduction of Global Virtualization Services in the Singapore data centre, enterprises and multinational corporations with operations or customers in the region will benefit from NTT Group's infrastructure, network performance and data centre facility.” said Masaaki Moribayashi, Managing Director of NTT Europe.

The service is called “BizHosting Global” in Japan and is based on NTT Com's global infrastructure.
