A promising collaboration between NTT, the Japanese telecoms giant, and MedOne, provider of cloud computing services. The link between the companies represents a leap forward in terms of the service offered to enterprise companies, in particular full operation of the cloud for 99.999% of the time, and particularly high quality disaster recovery plans (DRPs). For this purpose, NTT and MedOne are investing some 40 million dollars. The cloud servers will be located in two completely separate data centers, and in addition there will be a 24/7 service center, in both routine and emergency times.
