Japan's NTT Com has introduced the Managed Microsoft Azure Stack Solution in Singapore.

Marrying NTT Com’s expertise in managed services with Microsoft’s cloud technology, the Managed Microsoft Azure Stack Solution is designed to help enterprises to keep pace with ever-changing business requirements, in an agile and secure cloud environment.

As organizations across Asia Pacific (APAC) advance on their digital transformation journeys, cloud environments are gaining traction as a viable, secure and cost-efficient model for delivering customer centric services.

According to a recent report by 451 Research, 56% of organizations in the region are already planning for or have formed a formal strategy for hybrid cloud deployment. According to the report, the main drivers of hybrid cloud adoption in the region include improvements to the consistency of security policies and risk management, enhanced business agility and the better interoperation of applications or workloads.

The Managed Microsoft Azure Stack Solution empowers businesses with a more efficient platform for hybrid cloud migration and deployment, ensuring cost optimization and compliance with specific regulatory requirements. The joint solution enables enterprises to run Azure-consistent services in NTT Com’s data centers, through secure private connectivity to Microsoft Azure Public Cloud. Businesses can also manage sensitive data using Azure services from their data centers to maintain compliance with the industry’s latest regulations, such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

“The expanded availability of the Managed Microsoft Azure Stack Solution in Singapore illustrates our commitment to addressing the technology needs of enterprises across the region,” NTT Singapore director of cloud and managed services Kiyoshi Matsumoto said.

“The business landscape has evolved with new regulations and advanced threats, making security and compliance more important than ever. Our partnership with Microsoft enables us to deliver a solution that provides data-critical businesses, such as financial services institutions and government organizations, with the capabilities to manage their sensitive information, while better supporting their business needs.”
