NTT Comm Powers Cloud for Yamaha Motors

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) will provide Yamaha Motor Co. with a cloud platform to operate mission-critical systems in Japan for production, procurement, product development, human resources and finance operations.

NTT Com will deploy its Enterprise Cloud global cloud service and Arcstar Universal One global network service to create a highly robust and scalable cloud platform. Yamaha Motor will use the platform to strengthen business continuity and slash ICT costs by consolidating currently dispersed servers, networks and other ICT systems on to NTT Com cloud services.

Yamaha Motor plans to migrate all ICT systems in Japan by 2018. ICT systems overseas will be migrated within an appropriate timeframe.

  • Yamaha Motor’s mission-critical systems encompass some 700 servers and are accessed by their group companies worldwide.
  • Most of the systems are owned and operated at on-premise environments within the Tokai region of central Japan.
  • NTT Com’s cloud platform with its many data center helps lower the disaster risk and improve business continuity.
  • Yamaha Motor operates 140 group companies in 30 countries/regions and generates about 90% of total sales overseas.
