Japan’s KDDI Uses 3Tera’s AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform

Launches KDDI Cloud Server Service - the most comprehensive cloud computing solution in the Telco space today

“Cloud Computing technology is quickly transforming computing into a utility, making Telcos logical providers for cloud services,” said Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera, Inc., as it was announced today that KDDI, Japan’s second largest telecommunications carrier, is using the 3Tera AppLogic cloud computing platform to deliver the next-generation IT platform through their new “KDDI Cloud Server Service” offering.

“KDDI has a reputation of technology innovation and leadership, so being at the core of their cloud service is a big recognition for the capability of 3Tera’s AppLogic cloud computing platform,” added Lynn.

IDC Japan’s Senior Communications Market Analyst, Akiko Kawakami, points out in her report, ‘KDDI's Next Generation IT Infrastructure "Cloud Server Service": Will It Accelerate User Migration to Managed Services?’ (IDC. August, 2009): “The field of Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is receiving much momentum from the fact that no IT assets are needed and it alleviates the work involved in the procurement and introduction of IT infrastructure. IDC believes that KDDI's new service has what it takes to fulfill the expectations of user companies embracing cloud services.”

Initial offerings include virtual systems and virtual private data centers run at the KDDI Telehouse domestic data centers. This allows KDDI to offer both Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as a-Service solutions, where customers can run their existing applications on the IT platform or use KDDI’s prepared applications to significantly lower their initial investment and operational costs. Details on the service and pricing are available on KDDI’s official Web site.

Lynn added, “We are excited to have our distribution and hosting partners in Japan - Net One Systems and Xseed - who by making their expertise available and keeping close contact with the customer were instrumental in the implementation on these new services.” 3Tera’s leading cloud platform, specifically designed for hosting and service providers today, offers Telcos a production-proven turnkey platform, powering data centers around the world. By choosing AppLogic, service providers gain access to additional functionality such as visual applications infrastructure editor, real-time scalability, system resource management, comprehensive monitoring and even critical features such as business continuity, disaster recovery.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
