Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications™, today announces that it has become a Google Cloud Platform Authorized Services Partner.

Through the IZO™ Public cloud enablement service, Tata Communications and Google will be collaborating to provide businesses with a simple and future-proof way to connect and build their cloud over the public Internet – providing unparalleled performance, reach, and capacity ensuring a consistently good user experience for enterprise end-customers.
The IZO™ Public cloud enablement service is part of Tata Communications’ game changing IZO™ network platform for enhanced hybrid cloud enablement.
