Mirantis and NTT Communications have announced a partnership to offer fully managed Private OpenStack as a service in NTT Com Enterprise Cloud and its data center services across the globe.
NTT Com, in becoming Mirantis’ first data center services partner, will offer Mirantis Managed OpenStack on NTT Com Enterprise Cloud’s Metal-as-a-Service. The partnership will offer customers global flexibility for off-premises deployments, a rapid on-ramp to OpenStack services without complexity, and alternatives for total cost of ownership reduction.
“OpenStack is an essential component of tomorrow’s private cloud architectures, and Mirantis has industry-leading technology and processes in its OpenStack software and services, enabling them to manage OpenStack infrastructure as code,” said NTT Com VP of Cloud Services, Hideki Kurihara. “Our technical and go-to-market collaboration will enable true experience of operationalized OpenStack, delivered as a service globally.”
Mirantis Managed OpenStack is a managed private cloud based on industry-leading Mirantis OpenStack software. The offering gives customers 24×7 “as a service” operations by Mirantis and up to 99.99% SLAs on Mirantis’ open source software and tooling.
NTT Com’s Enterprise Cloud, which leverages OpenStack in its core engineering design, serves global enterprises in their IT transformation journeys. Metal-as-a-Service delivers a fully automated on-demand service model and is natively connected to its own closed network. It provides 10-Gbps connectivity between its global data centers and the cloud.
“With direct presence in 87 countries and regions, NTT Group commands the largest data center footprint in the world,” said Mirantis CMO and co-founder, Boris Renski. “Through this partnership we’ll be able to deliver instant-on, hands-off managed cloud experience for our global customers with compelling economics.”
