Tata Communications, the global comms provider, has launched IZO, a global network platform for enhanced hybrid cloud enablement. IZO brings a new way of tackling the challenges that businesses face in realising the potential of the cloud. A single provider offers access to a full ecosystem of network, cloud and data centre connectivity making it simple for a business to connect and build its cloud, their way – be it private, hybrid or public.
The IZO network platform takes the public Internet and engineers it for predictable routing, together with enterprise cloud connectivity and interconnected data centres. Bringing together a growing ecosystem of over 20 service providers reaching 85 per cent of the world’s GDP, two of the largest cloud platforms – Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure – and over 50 data centres across the globe, the IZO network delivers a comprehensive cloud enablement platform.
Charles Bligh, Managing Director, TalkTalk Business says, “Today the key pointers in the global ICT landscape are the need for elastic bandwidths, cost effective secure access, superior application experiences, remote workforces and more. All of which point to the need for rapid cloud adoption. IZO Internet WAN is a game changing deployment of a global Internet-based WAN service that gives businesses the flexibility and predictability of a private network, with the global reach of the Internet – an enabler for businesses to stay competitive. TalkTalk is delighted to be the first UK connectivity supplier to Tata Communications for this service.”
