“Expanding our IZO platform with cloud storage capabilities is part of our mission to provide CIOs with the ability to manage every aspect of their cloud infrastructure as one,” he added.The company notes that industries today are desperately in need of new scalable and safe ways to store sensitive data. IZO Cloud Storage aims to tap this issue with its scalability, as it enables enterprises to store unlimited amounts of data on a pay-as-you-grow basis with “no CAPEX investment”. Also, businesses are exempted from paying extra for accessing or modifying their data, ensuring predictability of storage costs. Hence, the new platform aims to give multinational organisations the freedom to choose a cloud environment to suit their requirements, ensuring data security and sovereignty even in tightly regulated industries. And this it does by eliminating the cost and complexity of working with different storage software providers, network vendors and systems integrators. IZO Cloud Storage currently offers businesses unlimited storage capacity in Tata Communications’ owned and associated data centres in India, Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK, and enables the end-to-end management of data over the company’s global network.
Tata Communications has expanded its IZO cloud enablement platform with the launch of IZO Cloud Storage, a scalable storage service. The new storage service portfolio would support enterprises’ hybrid cloud adoption by combining network connectivity, cloud storage and data security. Underpinned by the wholly-owned subsea cable network, IZO Cloud Storage caters to the complex storage demand of enterprises, as the volume of unstructured data – such as videos, social media posts, images, emails and customer details – is set to constitute 80% of the 125 Exabytes of data generated by organisations in 2017. “As data volumes continue to skyrocket while data retention and sovereignty regulations across industries tighten, companies today face three major challenges: cost, complexity and security,” said Genius Wong, President of Global Network, Cloud and Data Centre Services at Tata Communications.
