Japan’s KDDI Uses 3Tera’s AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform

Launches KDDI Cloud Server Service - the most comprehensive cloud computing solution in the Telco space today

“Cloud Computing technology is quickly transforming computing into a utility, making Telcos logical providers for cloud services,” said Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera, Inc., as it was announced today that KDDI, Japan’s second largest telecommunications carrier, is using the 3Tera AppLogic cloud computing platform to deliver the next-generation IT platform through their new “KDDI Cloud Server Service” offering.

“KDDI has a reputation of technology innovation and leadership, so being at the core of their cloud service is a big recognition for the capability of 3Tera’s AppLogic cloud computing platform,” added Lynn.

IDC Japan’s Senior Communications Market Analyst, Akiko Kawakami, points out in her report, ‘KDDI's Next Generation IT Infrastructure "Cloud Server Service": Will It Accelerate User Migration to Managed Services?’ (IDC. August, 2009): “The field of Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is receiving much momentum from the fact that no IT assets are needed and it alleviates the work involved in the procurement and introduction of IT infrastructure. IDC believes that KDDI's new service has what it takes to fulfill the expectations of user companies embracing cloud services.”

Initial offerings include virtual systems and virtual private data centers run at the KDDI Telehouse domestic data centers. This allows KDDI to offer both Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as a-Service solutions, where customers can run their existing applications on the IT platform or use KDDI’s prepared applications to significantly lower their initial investment and operational costs. Details on the service and pricing are available on KDDI’s official Web site.

Lynn added, “We are excited to have our distribution and hosting partners in Japan - Net One Systems and Xseed - who by making their expertise available and keeping close contact with the customer were instrumental in the implementation on these new services.” 3Tera’s leading cloud platform, specifically designed for hosting and service providers today, offers Telcos a production-proven turnkey platform, powering data centers around the world. By choosing AppLogic, service providers gain access to additional functionality such as visual applications infrastructure editor, real-time scalability, system resource management, comprehensive monitoring and even critical features such as business continuity, disaster recovery.
