August 29, 2012

SOFTBANK TELECOM (News - Alert), a specialist in voice and data transmission services announced a strategic alliance with infrastructure platform provider VCE to accelerate the adoption of cloud computing by companies of all sizes in Japan. 

According to the agreement, SOFTBANK TELECOM will work with VCE as a service provider and reseller of VCE Vblock Systems.

VCE offers a family of Vblock Systems to meet the needs of the business. Each system delivers predictable units of performance and scales across a wide range of application requirements.

"This relationship with VCE extends our VMware expertise and will help more companies lower costs and improve efficiencies through virtualization and cloud computing. Vblock Systems provide us with a globally standardized platform that we can offer either as a service or as a private or hybrid cloud solution with the ability to easily replicate services as well as performance and cost benefits," Ken Miyauchi, representative director and chief operating officer at SOFTBANK TELECOM said in a statement.

SOFTBANK TELECOM is standardizing its cloud services on Vblock Systems, which bring together leading technologies from VMware, Cisco and EMC (News - Alert) into an intelligent converged infrastructure system with seamless support. In addition to Infrastructure-as-a-Service, SOFTBANK TELECOM and its extensive network of partners will market and deploy Vblock Systems as part of a portfolio of on-site private and hybrid cloud offerings for enterprise customers.

SOFTBANK TELECOM has deployed a Vblock System in its data centers at home and abroad. VCE will collaborate with SOFTBANK TELECOM and provide expertise as solutions are configured and deployed for Japanese customers in and outside of Japan. 

“Working together, SOFTBANK TELECOM and VCE will help companies throughout Japan take advantage of the cost and business agility benefits of highly virtualized data centers and accelerate their adoption of cloud computing through intelligent converged infrastructure using best-in-class technologies,” Praveen Akkiraju, chief executive officer at VCE emphasized.
