Case Study — NTT Communications

Global telecom leader relies on Cloudian for S3 API combatibility and limitless scalability

NTT Communications Delivers Object Storage To Enterprise Cloud Services with Cloudian Hyperstore

ntt-1NTT Communications is one of the world’s top three telecom companies and sits in the Fortune Global 500. NTT Communications enterprise cloud, dubbed Biz Hosting Cloudn Object Storage, is NTT’s cloud hosting service. NTT relies on Cloudian HyperStore® software to bring robust Amazon S3-like services and limitless scalability to its cloud as the company combines flexibility features, straightforward data management, and full customization with expanded global reach.

The IT team at NTT Communications knew its legacy storage systems could not provide the required scalability and ironclad data security at the aggressive price points that its customers demanded. If the company was to compete with the world’s other significant service providers, the team needed to switch from its outdated distributed file storage scheme to the much more agile object storage model in order to optimally manage its many petabytes of user data. These technical requirements lead the Biz Hosting Cloudn Object Storage team to consider Cloudian HyperStore.
