TechnoCUVIC VP is an IaaS platform service that allows users to freely increase or decrease virtual servers. CTC will promote it mainly to those companies which are planning to introduce large-scale private clouds or to integrate servers in an attempt to achieve sales of 11 billion yen for FY 2014 from service-type cloud solutions including TechnoCUVIC VP.
CTC has been offering the TechnoCUVIC IaaS cloud service since 2008. In this service, virtual servers are available for monthly fees.
In response to recent growth in customer needs for introducing private clouds for integrating their intra-company systems without owning assets, CTC has added the TechnoCUVIC VP private platform option for virtualization and integration. On this cloud service, users can freely design and construct virtual servers as a new option of TechnoCUVIC.
That allows customers to construct their private clouds without owning any assets and without performing device setting design and construction. TechnoCUVIC VP has the following features.
