(The Hosting News) – Cloud.com, the market leader in open source cloud computing software, today announced that Tata Communications, a leading global provider of a new world of communications, is using the company’s flagship product, CloudStack™, for its public cloud offering, InstaCompute. Specifically tailored to meet the IT needs of growing businesses, InstaCompute is an innovative new cloud computing service which provides secure and elastic, on-demand computing and storage resources. Tata Communications chose Cloud.com because of its ability to get the organization to market with a highly scalable and reliable cloud platform that enables it to address the growing demand for affordable and global cloud computing services.
“Growing businesses throughout the world are looking for technology innovations to overcome the lack of IT management bandwidth, tight budgets and the need for quicker time to market,” said David Wirt, SVP, Global Head of Managed Services at Tata Communications. “Cloud computing is a powerful tool that addresses these challenges quickly and efficiently. In selecting our cloud management platform, it was important to find a partner that provided us with a foundation for building a highly reliable and secure cloud service and at the same time, give us the control and flexibility to differentiate and tailor our solution to our customers’ needs.”
The emergence of public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds in the last several years is changing the way that individuals, developers and businesses utilize computing power.
