NTT Malaysia Partners with Megaport to Bring Direct Multicloud Connectivity to Malaysian Enterprises
Kuala Lumpur, 21st February 2019 – NTT MSC Sdn. Bhd., the global ICT provider in Malaysia has entered into a strategic partnership with Megaport Singapore Pte Ltd, the Singapore subsidiary of Megaport Limited (ASX:MP1) (“Megaport”), a global leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider to launch NexConnect Cloud Service, a Megaport Connected service, in the country. With just 1 single physical connection, enterprises can connect to multiple cloud providers, which eases management as well as promotes cost efficiency.
NexConnect Cloud Service enables enterprises to connect to various cloud service providers (CSPs) such as Alibaba Cloud, Amazon Web Service (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Salesforce, and Oracle Cloud. This is done via NTT’s network Point of Presence (POP) in its data centers in Cyberjaya, Malaysia as well as through Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN), a private, secure, and low latency connection. NexConnect also offers enterprises the ability to have better traffic control between cloud providers, as well as reduce hardware costs by elastically scaling resources without requiring additional dedicated routers.
“Technology is rapidly progressing globally, specifically in automation and cloud services. Malaysia represents an opportunity to increase our presence in the market; NexConnect Cloud Service allows enterprises to bypass the obstacles that impede them from enjoying the benefits of multi-cloud computing adoption. NTT MSC aims to become the data exchange infrastructure provider in Malaysia.” said Taichi Hiramatsu, Chief Executive Officer of NTT MSC Sdn. Bhd. “Our partnership with Megaport further consolidates our presence here in Malaysia as we can help enterprises enjoy secure connectivity to multi-cloud platforms.”
Demand for cloud services in the country has seen an increase as Malaysian enterprises move towards a more digitalized environment to remain competitive in their respective industry. However, a single cloud service environment in today’s world may not suffice as it might not suit the needs and requirements of businesses from various industries. A November 2017 survey by 451 Research showed 69% of enterprises will operate in multi-cloud or hybrid IT environments by 2019. With a five-year Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19%, 451 Research expects the cloud service market to reach $53.3 billion in 2021.
“We are excited to grow our partnership with NTT Communications,” said Vincent English, Chief Executive Officer, Megaport. “As Malaysian enterprises undergo their digital transformation initiatives, cloud connectivity will play a critical role in breaking down the barriers to adopting public cloud services. Megaport’s SDN enables improved performance, security, and scalability for cloud-based applications. Our partnership with NTT Malaysia will give their customers these great benefits and greater optionality when architecting their IT solutions.”
NTT Communication’s latest collaboration in Malaysia charts the company’s growth across Asia Pacific, namely Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. Enterprises within these regions are now recognizing the significance of integrating cloud services within their IT infrastructure. The local presence of NTT services within the region allow companies to address local market demand and potential while leveraging on NTT’s strength and capabilities.
NTT MSC offers the ideal platform for enterprises to enjoy uninterrupted, secure and scalable connectivity with low latency to multiple cloud service environments via its extensive data centers in Cyberjaya. This allows enterprises to migrate their traditional infrastructure and applications to the cloud at significantly reduced costs on consumption basis. Furthermore, multi-cloud environments allow enterprises to streamline and embed DevOps processes for higher efficiencies and reduced downtime.
