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.
