Highly available and secure IT system environment through Amazon Web Services
TOKYO, May 8 — NEC Corporation announced today the availability of services on Amazon Web Services (AWS, *1), including its "InfoCage SiteShell" Web Application Firewall (WAF, *2) Software and "EXPRESSCLUSTER X" (*3) Clustering Software, which have been successfully introduced to leading companies throughout the world.
IT systems and mission critical systems on the Cloud must feature robust security, superior fault detection and rapid disaster recovery. The NEC technologies running on AWS enables the provision of a highly available and secure cloud computing environment.
Key features of "InfoCage SiteShell" and "EXPRESSCLUSTER X" on AWS are as follows:
Enhanced security at a low cost with "InfoCage SiteShell"
HA clustering through "EXPRESSCLUSTER X" in a virtual environment by AWS
EXPRESSCLUSTER X enables the configuration of HA (High Availability) clustering in a virtual environment provided by AWS. This allows more critical business operations to be implemented on AWS and provides users with more system configuration choices. EXPRESSCLUSTER X ensures high availability of users' critical systems by enabling HA clustering across multiple Availability Zones (*5) in each AWS Region (*5).
Going forward, NEC will continue to develop and provide products and services that deliver highly available and secure Cloud computing services.
"We are pleased to see NEC providing WAF software and Clustering software running on AWS cloud for a wide range of companies across all business sizes," said Mr. Tadao Nagasaki, managing director of Amazon Data Services Japan. "Through the ease of use that AWS offers for WAF software and Clustering software to support mission critical domains, it brings more business values for companies in this constantly changing business environment."
*3) EXPRESSCLUSTER X holds the No.1 share among HA clustering software in Asia Pacific including Japan.

Availability Zones: Each AWS Region consists of multiple Availability Zones. Each Availability Zone in a AWS Region has datacenter clusters that are engineered to be operationally independent of the other Availability Zones, with independent power, cooling, physical security, and network connectivity.
