NTT Communications Corporation plans to launch the ‘On-premises Connection’, world’s first software-defined networking (SDN)-based cloud migration service. The service will launched on July 28 in Japan and later in other markets worldwide.
On-premises Connection service will connect customer on-premises systems with NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud via the Internet using SDN technology to facilitate smooth, flexible transitions to the cloud.
The SDN technology has been developed by NTT Com in partnership with VMware, and a research institute operated by parent NTT Corporation.
Some of the key features of the new service are:
- The new service will substantially reduce the workload required to design and configure on-premises networks by connecting on-premises systems and cloud in the same network segment using SDN-compatible gateway equipment installed in the customer’s system.
- Customers can use the existing IP addresses of their on-premises systems post-migration to the cloud environment.
- Highly secure, encrypted data can be transferred between on-premises systems and Enterprise Cloud via the Internet at up to 100 Mbps.
- Customers can make changes like adjusting bandwidth to transfer large data in off-peak hours very promptly using the SDN technology.
- Existing Internet connection lines can be used for cloud migration by the customers.
- Payment for the service, including gateway equipment, is on a per-day basis. This on-demand use helps to minimize the cost of cloud migration. because
The pricing details of the On-premises Connection are:
- The initial cost of installing gateway equipment at the customer’s site is 220,000 yen.
- The daily charge is 10,800 yen.
- The maximum monthly charge has is 223,000 yen.
