NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has announced that it has enhanced its Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) offering by leveraging Microsoft Azure Site Recovery. Providing capabilities previously too expensive or complex for on-premises solutions, the new DRaaS offering enables replication of enterprise workloads to an NTT Com data center / centre or Microsoft Azure, assuring real-time business continuity in the case of unexpected server failures or planned downtime.

“With no capital investment and paying for only the resources they consume, enterprise customers can replicate their primary environment to NTT Com or to Microsoft Azure, depending on their requirements,” said Justin Bannister, product manager, North America, for NTT Com. “This is a key differentiator - with NTT Com’s full suite of managed cloud and DRaaS services, customers can securely replicate workloads that don’t fit in the public cloud to an NTT Com data center. They have options.”

In addition to replication, NTT Com’s DRaaS offering provides full-scale planning, implementation, testing and management.

As a Microsoft Gold Certified Hosting Partner with a team of Azure experts, NTT Com takes a consultative approach, providing customizable solutions that best fit an enterprise’s physical and virtualized environments, service level agreement needs, and recovery point and recovery time objective targets. A one-stop shop, NTT Com fully manages a customer’s DRaaS solution, including event response, monitoring, recovery plan testing, and operation. Microsoft technology supports the offering’s expansive capabilities.
