NTT Communications ICT Solutions has launched new storage services based on Nimble Storage’s All Flash Systems for its utility, cloud and managed services customers.

National Sales Director, NTT Communications ICT Solutions Julie Barbieri said the partnership with Nimble provided an enhanced storage portfolio and product offering through the vendor’s Multicloud Flash Fabric, which effectively deploys storage resources to meet the growing demands of business-critical applications.

“The partnership provides clients with the ability to scale storage performance and capacity plus offers a flexible, building-block approach to achieving cloud scale,” she said.

Barbieri said the recent acquisition of Nimble by HPE was also a key factor in NTT ICT choosing them over other vendors.

“The acquisition by HPE solidifies the offering and brings further flexibility around our storage solutions. Nimble are incredibly easy to work with and are very focused around the channel, so it made business and technology sense. The use of predictive analytics in their solutions also gave them an advantage over other vendors.”

Nimble ANZ managing director Bede Hackney said the company believed the partnership brought NTT ICT customers the most comprehensive package in the market.

“Our relationship with NTT ICT delivers a next-generation infrastructure capable of unrivalled application performance that is built to support any customer scenario. The Nimble solution delivers a predictive cloud platform that provides greater than 99.9999% availability and the sheer speed that will help NTT ICT’s clients achieve cloud scalability with integrated protection, deep-data analytics, and efficient resiliency.
“The partnership is an exciting venture and we are proud to be associated with NTT ICT to bring them a next generation cloud storage solution.”
