Use Cases

OnPremise x Cloud

OnPremise x Cloud use case

OnPremise x Cloud

Data integration with or cloud migration of the mission-critical system

Connect the information system and a public cloud with closed network without going through the Internet, and operate it as hybrid. Optimization of resource usage, phased migration to cloud.

Cloud x Data Center

A use case for the connection of the cloud and a Data Center

Cloud x Data Center

Hybrid usage of Data Center and Cloud services

Data requiring strict control is kept in the physical environment of a Data Center, accessed rapidly from Cloud through the closed network. Reduce device costs by migrating firewals and servers to the cloud.

Cloud Migration

MultiCloud Use Case

Cloud Migration

"Pick the best" of every cloud

Web services or game apps which runs among more than one public clouds, such as IDCF Cloud and Private Cloud, sharing the same customer database.

Redundancy/Global Load Balancing

Use case for Redundancy/Global Load Balancing

Redundancy/Global Load Balancing

By connecting different regions, you can configure a system of global load balancing cloud. You can avoid getting impacted by physical system faults. Using with GSLB (Global Server Load Balancing) enables you to have measures for BCP or DR, including load balancing and automatic switchover to the backup site.
