Tata Comm launches international cloud services

http://english.samaylive.com/pics/article/tata_group265_1297696690.jpgTelecom firm Tata Communications on Tuesday said it has become the first Indian Telco to offer cloud computing solutions globally by launching services in Singapore.

"We are in a strong position as a global cloud provider. Security on the network is a critical element for any customer looking to enter the cloud.

Our security business forms an integral part of our customer's cloud development, rather than being an add-on after the infrastructure has been built," Tata Communications SVP and Global Head of Managed Services David Wirt said in a statement in Mumbai.

After launching in India in October last year, Tata Communications launched Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
services in Singapore, which also covers neighbouring Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Tata Communications Managing Director and CEO Vinod Kumar said, "As one of the business and financial hubs of Asia, Singapore is strategically positioned to drive a rapidly evolving economy where businesses demand flexible and scalable infrastructure. Singapore is where our international headquarters are based and is a key market for us."

Later this year the launch will be extended to the UK, the US and South African markets.
