Services giant NTT Ltd has launched a new cloud platform in Paris, aimed at France's mid-sized enterprise space.
The $11bn-revenue behemoth said it's fulfilling a demand in France for hybrid IT and multi-cloud to run their chosen workloads in optimal environments.
"Today's launch of the cloud platform in France fulfils increasing demand for cloud services," NTT country manager for southern Europe, Frederick Tak-Kit Ong, said.
"But the bigger value for clients is the complete global infrastructure proposition that NTT has to offer. We frequently work with our clients to optimise their workloads for performance and cost across hyperscale and NTT cloud offerings.
The London-based services firm claims that the Paris cloud platform will deliver cloud workload optimisation via its Solution Insight product, which supports visualisation, automation, disaster recovery, and hybrid IT resources across multiple hyperscalers.
General availability of the NTT cloud offering will start from 24 October.
In July, the company completed a major restructure, more than two years in the making, which saw it merge 28 companies.
They included comms firm NTT Communications, its datacentre and systems integrator arm Dimension Data and its managed security services business NTT Security.
NTT claims its headcount is now over 40,000, spread across 70 countries, with an annual R&D spend of $3.6bn.
The firm said that it's this global footprint of so many offerings that will bring a full stack and managed services solution, which will differentiate itself in the French market.
"Clients can scale their IT operations quickly around the world with NTT as their partner, leveraging NTT's vast capabilities including network services," NTT Senior EVP of infrastructure services, Masaaki Moribayashi, said.
