Includes network intrusion detection, managed firewalls and network services
Savvis, a provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT offerings, said that it has signed a contract to provide managed services for 70 of All Nippon Airways corporate web sites.
Under the three year agreement, Savvis will provide an IT infrastructure offering supporting ANA Group’s corporate web sites and intranets spanning 90 domains. ANA will deploy Savvis’ managed hosting services, as well as managed security services, which include network intrusion detection, managed firewalls and managed network services.
The company said that ANA Group selected its managed IT infrastructure services to reduce its capital expenditures and operational costs and to support the delivery of new technologies. The services will be available on a global basis and delivered from Savvis’ Tokyo data centre.
Savvis’ hosting services allow for higher quality of operations and increased security and infrastructure scalability to meet enterprise-level requirements. These offerings are backed by service level agreements (SLAs) based on server availability.
Masahiro Tsukiji, assistant manager of technology and architecture for information technology services at ANA, said: There was an urgent need to enhance web site governance, reduce costs and increase flexibility. We require 24/7 monitoring, high levels of security within the IT environment, and solid SLAs.
“Choosing Savvis has enabled our IT team to move away from the day-to-day operation and management of IT infrastructure and enable our IT team to focus on other core business initiatives including ANA Sky Web.
