11:12 EDTMSFTNTT Communications launches Multi-Cloud Connect service
Earlier today, NTT Communications Corporation, the ICT solutions and international communications business within NTT (NTT), announced the launch of Multi-Cloud Connect - an optional feature on NTT Com's Arcstar Universal One that enables enterprises to access third party public cloud services through its high-performance MPLS network for enhanced security and improved connectivity. While enterprise adoption of cloud services continues to accelerate, most of these services are public cloud-based and accessed via the Internet. Inconsistent Internet performance is a major impediment to widespread cloud adoption, especially for MNCs with highly distributed end-users. Multi-Cloud Connect will address these performance issues by connecting the Arcstar Universal One MPLS network directly to public cloud service provider platforms, such as Microsoft (MSFT) Azure and Amazon (AMZN) Web Services, AWS.
