NTT Communications, a global provider of telecommunications services around the world, is expanding the use of Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) technology in its “cloud computing” services offering.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

The two companies began working together on cloud – or shared computing and server capabilities in a virtualized manner with on demand capabilities – offerings a year ago.

The latest deal involves use of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat Enterprise Linux as part of its Biz Hosting Basic service. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is Red Hat’s most popular offering. Virtualization enables servers to support multiple operating systems simultaneously.

“We selected Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization as the foundation for our Biz Hosting Basic cloud service at launch last year because of its high availability, reliability, security and scalability,” said Mamoru Murakami, director of Ubiquitous Communication Department, Business Network Services Division at NTT Communications, in a statement.

“We have seen such success with this deployment with our cloud service that we’ve greatly expanded our use of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization to further leverage the solution’s performance, security and scalability in an effort to provide an ideal cloud solution to our customers,” he added.
