Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced that NTT Business Solutions, a member company of NTT West Group has selected the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to deliver its growing “Regional Revitalization Cloud” and provide a hybrid cloud service to local governments, educational institutions, and businesses across western Japan. The new hybrid cloud service meets the demands of customers for robust cloud services which span public and private cloud environments and ensures that critical data are located close to the end customer, thus alleviating any concerns about data sovereignty.
The key driver of the NTT West Group’s Regional Revitalization Cloud is to solve regional issues and help businesses and institutions accelerate their digital transformation. The initiative is based on a regional information integration platform that combines NTT Group’s various technologies, regional data centers and other facilities, business sector-specific consulting services, along with community-based support capabilities, and cloud technologies of partner companies. NTT West Group is implementing a hybrid cloud approach that leverages Microsoft Azure public cloud combined with the HPE GreenLake platform to provide a strong regional delivery model.
The company has deployed the platform running HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack Hub to quickly accommodate the different requirements, resources, and budgets across the various prefectures. The first cloud services have been launched in Kyoto, Tottori, and Aichi and are rolling out in individual data centers across a total of 30 different prefectures across the western part of Japan.
