Offers Tata Communications’ IZO Managed Cloud Services for Google Cloud

India, March 25, 2021

Tata Communications, a global digital ecosystem enabler, today announced its partnership with Google Cloud to drive cloud adoption and transform Indian businesses. With this partnership, Tata Communications has further expanded their managed public cloud services portfolio to include capabilities for Google Cloud.

 

The partnership between Tata Communications and Google Cloud India 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.

 

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. Tata Communications IZO™ Managed Cloud provides the right expertise, infrastructure, and support services to drive business growth and improve performance. Tata Communications’ IZO™ Cloud Command portal offers a single-pane-of-glass orchestration tool which integrates different enterprise IT environments into a single dashboard and simplifies the management and orchestration of the IT estate, offering a unified cloud experience. It provides a comprehensive view of IT resource utilisation (across on-premise, private, Google Cloud), thus enabling greater control for the customer, resulting in cost efficiencies and improved productivity.

 

With the current global scenario, there is wider recognition for business resilience and agility that cloud enables; most businesses are now beginning to explore a cloud-first model. DevOps, a set of practices that combine software development and IT operations, has become an important requirement for enterprises. To make applications future ready, businesses are modernising them by leveraging Containers and Kubernetes (an open-source platform for container orchestration), as they offer businesses the scalability and portability they need to be agile and build a competitive edge, enabling self-service provisioning and capacity on-demand with ease.

 

Tata Communications’ services can manage Kubernetes on Google Cloud platform that can enable application modernisation seamlessly, which is an essential need as enterprises graduate in the hybrid multi-cloud environments.

 

According to an IDC survey[1], more than 60 per cent of Indian organisations plan to leverage cloud platforms for digital innovation, as they re-strategise their IT spending plans. Tata Communications and Google Cloud India together have market leading capabilities across a spectrum of services for customers looking to reframe their business blueprint.

 

“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,” says Rajesh Awasthi, Global Head of Cloud and Managed Hosting Services at Tata Communications. “As organisations migrate to Google Cloud, they need a partner that will support them across their entire IT ecosystem and deliver a unified cloud management platform that offers greater transparency, control and security of their data and applications.”

 

“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”, said Amitabh Jacob, Head of Partners and Alliances at Google Cloud India

 

Tata Communications’ cloud capabilities are underpinned by 14 cloud nodes along with its tier-1 network, which carries around 30% of the world’s Internet routes. Tata Communications has also been awarded the best Managed Multi-cloud service provider of the year by Frost & Sullivan 3 times in a row.
