NTT Communications on Wednesday said that it will launch the Compute (VPC Type) service, which customers of NTT Com’s Cloud (n) public cloud service will use to build virtual server environments connected to VPN and other secure networks at industry-low rates.
Compute (VPC Type) enables a virtual server to be established on a private network connected to a high-quality Internet virtual private network (VPN) or an IP-VPN such as Arcstar Universal One.
VPNs are virtual secure lines that function like leased lines but share backbone and access lines with multiple users. The virtual service offers instant connections and expansion to various networks. The service rate is fixed, regardless of bandwidth or traffic volume.
Compute (VPC Type OpenNW) connects to an internet VPN and Compute (VPC Type ClosedNW) connects to Arcstar Universal One. Both can be used to instantly create and use secure web systems or intra-systems as required.
For the time being, the service will be offered from NTT Com data centers in Japan, but applications will be accepted from users overseas. Application is offered online.
Going forward, Cloud (n) will be enhanced with other seamless, secure services, including from data centers in the US and other locations within APAC, and security options such as antivirus for virtual servers.
