Google partners with Tata to set up cloud computing facility
Global internet solution provider Tata Communications today said it has become authorized partner for Google Cloud Platform.
Under the terms of this agreement, Google’s new service, Google Cloud Interconnect will connect with Tata Communications’ IZO Public platform that enables companies to set up their cloud computing facility.
“Together with Google, we are committed in creating an ecosystem to make the internet fit for business to address how businesses use the internet to connect to the cloud in a secure and predictable way,” Tata Communications’ NextGen business CEO Julie Woods-Moss said in a statement.
Cloud platform offers access to computing facility like storage or software on pay as per use model instead of buying the full product at one go. Most of the companies are now accessing software and storage through cloud business model to reduce their expenses as per business needs.
Large corporates generally make their own private network due to their requirement of high speed access and delivery of data as well as to keep their data secure.
Tata Communications has already partnered with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure for IZO platform. The company launched IZO platform last week in 34 countries and plans to expand it to 100 countries by 2016.
