More than half (54 percent) of the respondents acknowledge the current value of IT is largely defined by its role as owner and operator of IT infrastructure; however, respondents believe within two years, the primary value of IT will come from managing the IT supply chain. Fifty percent of those surveyed indicate that an increase in cloud-based services, particularly those that were formerly managed in-house, has contributed to this evolution. Read more

First announced at VMware’s VMworld in August 2010, NTT America’s engineering staff has developed and deployed both multi-tenant and private cloud infrastructure, which provides customers with available and scalable access to the underlying compute resources that make up a virtual data center. This new cloud solution provides organizations with greater flexibility to create and change their individual environment to suit their specific needs. Organizations only need to purchase the minimum amount of resources required to design their virtual data center including CPU, RAM, storage and network access.  Customers can then manage the amount of resources they require in near real-time, further enabling them to customize an environment ideal for their operations, while only paying for the assets they contract.
