Red Hat, Inc., the provider of open source solutions today announced that Tata Communications, a global digital infrastructure provider, has selected Red Hat Cloud Suite, Red Hat’s broadest hybrid cloud offering, to help enhance its IZO Private Cloud service. By implementing Linux and Kubernetes-based Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat’s massively scalable cloud infrastructure, Tata Communications is able to offer its enterprise customers a reliable hybrid cloud experience across the globe.
Today, enterprises are adopting private and hybrid cloud strategies to help address the complexity and competitive pressures created by the evolution of new technologies. Tata Communications’ IZO™ Private Cloud is an integrated cloud platform that allows enterprises to build a hybrid cloud environment with the flexibility to burst to public cloud with enterprise-grade control and security. It is part of Tata Communications’ IZO™ cloud enablement platform that is underpinned by the company’s global network and partnerships with the world’s biggest cloud companies.
Tata Communications has adopted Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as part of the company’s Container–as-a-Service (CaaS) offering. The addition of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helps ensure integrated consistency through the solution stack and improved datacenter management efficiency, as both the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and CaaS layers are automated. This helps Tata Communications reduce time-to-market for new services without sacrificing existing investments. Additionally, the scale and operational efficiency of Red Hat OpenStack Platform helps to improve the customer experience, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides a way to accelerate application delivery and DevOps adoption in enterprises through greater control and visibility.
Red Hat Consulting also worked on the initial deployment and provided Tata Communications with hands-on expert support and training during the migration. Through ongoing collaboration with Red Hat, Tata Communications is bringing an enterprise-class hybrid cloud to market.
This collaboration enables Tata Communications to offer a robust digital core built around cloud design principles that include delivering a unified experience, an API-based open framework and a highly available microservices platform.
