NTT America Announces Release 08.4 Enhancements to the Enterprise Hosting Portfolio
New York, N.Y. – NTT America, a wholly owned US subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, today announced the availability of new and refreshed products and services as part of its Enterprise Hosting Release 08.4. These include the availability of Windows Server 2008; new software patch management service; new security hardware and managed security service options; and new customer care service choices. This Release 08.4 continues the quarterly discipline of enhancing the Enterprise Hosting portfolio of products and services to better meet the needs of customers and target markets.
NTT America now supports Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows Server 2008, as a standard service option. Customers will be able to leverage several benefits with this newest OS release, such as improved and hardened security to control user’s rights on the servers; improved clustering and failover support; substantially faster file transfers; and enhancements for IIS7 to provide faster authentication and more powerful content compression.
Upgrades to managed security services include a refreshed set of Proventia Multi-Function Security hardware options to meet the cost/performance requirements of a wider range of customers at different phases of growth. Managed security services have also been modified to provide target customers with greater price flexibility for support and policy changes.
NTT America has now expanded its Enterprise Customer Care to support service flexibility and choices. Standard service, delivered to all customers, continues to provide around the clock technical support; direct access to certified engineers; provisioning and billing support; and access to billing history and real-time performance data via the customer portal. Three new service levels are available to augment standard customer service, and include options such as: dedicated support for technical issue resolution and escalations; on-going monthly or quarterly reporting and review; project management; and professional services support. With either the standard service or one of the new service levels, customers can be assured that their outsourced IT infrastructure is getting the precise level of attention, care and support they require.
“We are pleased to offer these enhancements to our comprehensive portfolio of Managed Hosting services,” said Vini Handler, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing, Enterprise Hosting. “These new products and services enable customers to take advantage of the latest technology in server operating systems, security and server management. And with our expanded Enterprise Customer Care options, companies can now select a customer care solution matched to their own specific needs.”
