Sapporo’s Use of Nutanix Cloud Clusters to Establish Hybrid Cloud Environment Follows The Modernisation of Its Datacentre Using Nutanix’s Hyper-converged Infrastructure Solution
Nutanix, a hybrid multicloud computing innovator, and its partner iret (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Mitsumasa Iwanaga) have announced that the City of Sapporo (Mayor: Katsuhiro Akimoto) has deployed Nutanix Cloud Clusters (NC2) on Amazon Web Services and utilised Nutanix Flow Network Security to develop the country’s first hybrid cloud system.
Using Amazon EC2 bare metal infrastructure, on-premises and in the cloud, Sapporo City’s IT complexity and operational burdens have been reduced thanks to the use of a single interface. Because of the recent global semiconductor shortage, Sapporo City smoothly deployed its network infrastructure without delays in delivery.
This resulted in a smooth deployment. Due to the recent global semiconductor shortage, security-related workloads are currently being processed in the cloud, and Sapporo City’s internal IT systems, portals, and external websites will be migrated to the cloud in the future.
Satoru Isobe, Sapporo LA Sales Section at Otsuka Corporation says we were commissioned by Sapporo City to add to the Nutanix HCI infrastructure that we had installed and maintained by building a hybrid cloud environment. We had a very tight deadline to meet, considering the migration of the systems that were already in place
“With the support of Nutanix and iret, the NC2 on AWS environment was up and running in a short period of time, allowing for smooth operations throughout the entire project. We will continue to work closely with Nutanix and iret to provide better services to Sapporo City in the future.”

Deputy general manager of Cloud Integration Division at iret Hiroki Tachibana says iret worked closely with Nutanix and Sapporo City to implement NC2 on AWS, which enables seamless connectivity between on-premises and cloud environments.
“We also procured the necessary on-premises equipment, created a virtual private cloud (VPC) environment, provided the circuits that connect to the VPC, and procured various software licenses to smoothly construct a new environment with a hybrid cloud configuration. iret will continue to provide optimal solutions to customers who wish to configure a hybrid cloud, leveraging our extensive experience, know-how in cloud computing and partnership with Nutanix.” says Tachibana
SVP and GM for Asia-Pacific and Japan at Nutanix Matt Young says Nutanix is committed to helping customers including Sapporo City in Japan and others across the Asia-Pacific region make smart cloud decisions, enabling the deployment of applications and data in the environments that make the most sense, including private clouds, public clouds and hybrid multiclouds
“HCI is a solution that helps modernise data centers, giving them cloud-like agility for workloads that need to remain on-premises. Not only does the Nutanix hybrid multicloud platform take cloud environments to the next level, but by leveraging NC2, we help customers build on their on-premises private clouds and gain the agility and flexibility needed to build hybrid multicloud environments, including public clouds.” said Young
