Honda rafforza la propria rete globale di fornitori grazie al servizio Enterprise Cloud di NTT Communications

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), l’unità aziendale del gruppo NTT (NYSE:NTT) specializzata in comunicazioni internazionali e soluzioni ICT (tecnologie dell’informazione e della comunicazione), ha reso noto in data odierna che l’azienda produttrice di automobili Honda Motor Co., Ltd. ha implementato il servizio Enterprise Cloud di NTT Communications allo scopo di ridurre i costi operativi annui e rafforzare significativamente la propria rete globale di fornitori grazie a una più rapida e sicura condivisione dei file.

NTT Com, partner strategico globale di Honda, fornisce il proprio servizio Enterprise Cloud alla casa automobilistica dai propri centri di distribuzione di Giappone e Singapore dal 2013. A oggi, Honda ha registrato un aumento di ben 14 volte della velocità di condivisione dei file, cui si associa la contemporanea riduzione del 30% dei costi operativi su base annua. Honda sta attualmente pianificando di allargare l’utilizzo dell’infrastruttura Enterprise Cloud anche ad altre aree chiave della propria attività globale.

Enterprise Cloud di NTT Com (www.ntt.com/enterprise_cloud_e), il primo cloud privato a implementare un networking definito da software (Software Defined Networking, SDN), è basato su un’infrastruttura cloud globale fornita da 11 centri di distribuzione in 9 Paesi del mondo. Offrendo soluzioni aziendali complete con il massimo livello di sicurezza, il cloud sfrutta il paradigma SDN per fornire un supporto flessibile alle più importanti applicazioni aziendali.

La rete globale di Honda interessa più di 10.000 fornitori e 54 Paesi. Nel 2011 fu avviata la riorganizzazione del sistema aziendale interno preposto allo sviluppo, all’approvvigionamento e alla produzione in determinati mercati, con l’obiettivo di rafforzare la collaborazione tra i vari gruppi in modo da poter lanciare rapidamente prodotti con prezzi competitivi in grado di soddisfare le esigenze locali. Il progetto di collaborazione in questione, che richiedeva la condivisione di documenti CAD e altri file di dati di enormi dimensioni tra i fornitori di tutto il mondo, comportò per Honda serie difficoltà a causa delle differenze tra i sistemi e i livelli di sicurezza dei diversi mercati, con conseguenti rallentamenti nel trasferimento dei dati e perdita di tempo e denaro per l’introduzione di nuovi sistemi.

La soluzione proposta da NTT Com fu di utilizzare Enterprise Cloud per standardizzare i sistemi esistenti, riducendo tempi e costi di implementazione dei nuovi sistemi attraverso un ambiente virtualizzato. Honda ha così potuto incrementare la velocità di trasferimento delle grandi moli di dati oltre a standardizzare su vasta scala la propria rete di fornitori, rendendo più rapide ed economicamente efficienti le attività di sviluppo, produzione e approvvigionamento.

1) Trasferimento dei file ad alta velocità

L’infrastruttura cloud di Honda per il trasferimento dei file è direttamente connessa con Arcstar Universal One (www.ntt.com/universalone_e), il servizio di rete di alta qualità gestito da NTT Com. Oltre che per contare su elevate velocità di trasferimento tra sistemi eterogenei in mercati diversi, Honda si è avvalsa di questa infrastruttura per ottenere una maggiore efficienza a livello delle attività interne correlate.

2) Sicurezza standardizzata su scala globale

Il passaggio all’ambiente cloud di NTT Com ha consentito a Honda di standardizzare la propria politica di sicurezza globale in modo integrato attraverso l’algoritmo di crittografia dei file Camellia, una delle tecnologie di cifratura più sicure al mondo, e il protocollo di crittografia della comunicazione SSL.

3) Implementazione rapida e a basso costo dell’infrastruttura cloud globale

Honda può beneficiare anche di un ambiente cloud flessibile, collegato alla rete globale di alta qualità di NTT Com. L’infrastruttura cloud di NTT Com, fornita da 11 centri di distribuzione in 9 Paesi del mondo, ha consentito a Honda l’implementazione di sistemi più veloci del 90% e una riduzione del 30% rispetto al passato dei costi operativi.

“La soluzione Enterprise Cloud di NTT Com ha rafforzato e potenziato in modo significativo il nostro sistema globale finalizzato a uno sviluppo collaborativo dei prodotti” ha dichiarato Mikiya Fujita, responsabile della divisione System Service del dipartimento Global Master Management di Honda. “La loro infrastruttura cloud ci ha consentito di collaborare molto più strettamente con i nostri fornitori di tutto il mondo. Oltre a snellire e standardizzare i processi, abbiamo aumentato la sicurezza riducendo costi e tempi di implementazione dei nuovi sistemi”

Per il futuro, NTT Com continuerà a operare come partner globale strategico mentre Honda attuerà la migrazione al cloud di altre infrastrutture ICT per potenziare ulteriormente le proprie attività di sviluppo, approvvigionamento e produzione.

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances and co...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS).
