NTT Communications and IDS
A provider of web- based reporting services to the upstream oil and gas industry, Independent Data Services, reached to the cloud with NTT Communications.
Operational reporting and data analysis
Complicated hardware maintenance and reliability issues across multiple sites
IDS ( Independent Data Services) maintained a complicated hardware infrastructure. The company faced uncertain usagereliability of servers in the legacy system due to complexity in delivery across multiple data centres. It needed a single, intuitive, global customer portal to reduce infrastructure complexity and to streamline the delivery of solutions to ensure accurate operational reporting to oil and gas operators, drilling contractors and service companies located around the world. It also needed to increase its network capacity to provide a growing client portfolio with the fastest and most reliable operational reporting solutions. Scalable service linkage between worldwide connections was a key challenge in achieving a seamless process.
Enterprise cloud reduces complexity and delivers seamless connectivity
In its selection process, IDS prioritized partners with global integrated ICT network and cloud capabilities that could address the need for scalability and mobility responding to business growth. NTT Com’s enterprise cloud was selected due to its extensive distribution of POPs around the world ~ and a resilient backend network which has the capability to deliver optimal consistent latency results. Teaming up with NTT Com Security, IDS has also enhanced its security capabilities with active threat management to match the levels required by its business.
Capacity increased at a level cost while capabilities increased without the need for hardware investment, resulting in higher resilience
In just a few months, IDS increased its capacity at a level- cost by choosing NTT to consolidate its data servers. By reducing the amount of hardware and unused capacity, they were able to increase capabilities without additional hardware investment, thereby maximizing cost savings. With a more flexible and scalable architecture, IDS is able to dynamically manage resources according to demand and workloads. Lastly, with highly resilient and reliable global network, and integrated software defined networking ( SDN), IDS was able to connect and use the network securely with noted vast increase in resilience.
