Tata Communications has partnered with Google Cloud to "drive cloud adoption" in India, the company announced on February 16.
The partnership, Tata Communications claimed, has further expanded their managed public cloud services portfolio to include capabilities for Google Cloud.
"The partnership will enable organisations to deploy and access Google Cloud services through Tata Communications’ IZO Managed Cloud while providing them ease-of-use coupled with end-to-end services, including cloud architecture planning, workload migration and ongoing operational support," it said in an official release.
As a Google Cloud India partner, Tata Communications will support organisations with services across "infrastructure modernisation, data centre transformation, application modernisation, smart analytics,
multi-cloud deployments and more", the statement further added.
The company’s IZO Cloud Command portal helps integrate different enterprise IT environments into a single dashboard to simplify management of the IT estate. It also offers a unified cloud experience and provides a comprehensive view of IT resource utilisation across on-premise and private Google Cloud.
“The current demands on enterprises to manage and optimise their cloud solutions has never been more important, especially in the wake of COVID-19 and our increasing reliance on cloud infrastructure,” Rajesh Awasthi, Global Head of Cloud and Managed Hosting Services at Tata Communications, said.
Amitabh Jacob, Head of Partners and Alliances at Google Cloud India, reiterated the point, claiming that upgrading their cloud solutions is essential for organisations in 2021.
“The true test of 2021 will be how organizations adopt a cloud first approach. Through our partnership with Tata Communications, we will be able to provide our customers with a unified, end-to-end experience that
will remove the complexity in cloud management and help them transform at speed and scale”, he said.
Tata Communications’ cloud capabilities are underpinned by 14 cloud nodes along with its tier-1 network, which carries around 30 percent of the world’s Internet routes.
