New Delhi: Tata Communications today launched IZO Private Cloud service that gives direct control to organisations hosting it over their critical data. “IZO Private Cloud is the next step on our mission to harness our partnerships, global network and data centre infrastructure. The new service puts the CIO back in control of their cloud and data centre estate,” Genius Wong, President for Global Network Services, Cloud and Data Centre Services at Tata Communications said.
The new service will be available in 12 locations worldwide which include select cities in India, Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK and the US. Cloud computing service allows users to access softwares, storage etc on pay as per their use only and without actually buying the entire product.
Some companies specially in the field of banking, research and development prefer to have private cloud to keep their information isolated from public network for security reason. “Most of the times customers are worried about security on public cloud, our private cloud offering takes that security concern out,” Srinivasan CR, Vice President for Global Product Management at Tata Communications said.
The new service is part of Tata Communications’ IZO network platform ecosystem which currently consists of over 20 service providers covering countries accounting for 85 per cent of the world’s GDP. It has partnered with Microsoft Azure, Office365, Amazon Web Service, Google Cloud Platform and Salesforce to offer cloud services.
