Tata Communications Limited, which is part of the Tata Group, is one of India’s largest communications companies. Tata's communications network spans more than 500,000 kilometers of subsea fiber and more than 210,000 kilometers of terrestrial fiber. The company carries around 30 percent of the world's internet routes and connects businesses to 60 percent of the world's cloud giants.

The company now has a new partnership with a cloud giant: this week, Tata Communications announced that it is partnering with Google Cloud to drive cloud adoption and transform Indian businesses. With the Google partnership, Tata Communications noted that it has further expanded its managed public cloud services portfolio to include capabilities for Google Cloud. The partnership will enable organizations 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.

Tata Communications’ IZO Cloud Command portal offers a single-pane-of-glass orchestration tool that integrates different enterprise IT environments into a single dashboard and simplifies the management and orchestration of the IT estate, according to the company, offering a unified cloud experience. It provides a comprehensive view of IT resource utilization (across on-premise, private, Google Cloud), thus enabling greater control for the customer, resulting in cost efficiencies and improved productivity.

"The current demands on enterprises to manage and optimize their cloud solutions has never been more important, especially in the wake of Covid-19 and our increasing reliance on cloud infrastructure, said Rajesh Awasthi, Global Head of Cloud and Managed Hosting Services at Tata Communications, in a statement. “As organizations 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.”

Amitabh Jacob, Head of Partners and Alliances at Google Cloud India, noted that 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.
