The company says it expects to strengthen its public cloud, service development and related sales initiatives, as it accumulates OpenStack knowhow by “contributing to the development of open source cloud technologies and by providing flexible and highly reliable cloud services”.
The foundation is a nonprofit organisation that is playing a major role in developing the technology and ecosystem of OpenStack, an open source software for comprehensively managing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
After becoming a corporate sponsor of the Japan OpenStack User Group community, NTT Com concluded a corporate contributor license agreement (CCLA) with the OpenStack Foundation.
The new platform will combine services for hosted private clouds, bare metal clouds and public clouds, as well as provide customers with application programming interfaces and a portal site to centrally manage cloud services, including those of other providers.
NTT Com also says it will continue to contribute to the evolution of OpenStack by proposing advanced open-source cloud technologies to the OpenStack Foundation.
