Tata Launches "IZO" Cloud Enablement Platform

Tata Communications, which operates one of the most advanced and largest submarine cable networks and a Tier-1 IP network, launched its "IZO" cloud enablement platform for connecting network, data center and cloud resources on a global basis.

The vision behind Tata's IZO network platform is to combine the ubiquity of the public Internet with predictable routing, enterprise cloud connectivity and interconnected data centers.

Tata's IZO ecosystem brings together over 20 service providers reaching 85% of the world's GDP, two of the largest cloud platforms - Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure - and over 50 data centers across the globe.

The key elements of IZO include:

  • IZO Internet WAN -- brings the security, flexibility and predictability of a private network to the public internet - with the global reach of the Internet. Through partnerships with 20 service providers around the world, IZO Internet WAN provides multi-national organizations deterministic routing of traffic with guaranteed end-to-end SLAs and business standard reporting.
  • IZO Private -- connects businesses to cloud service providers via private network connectivity. Tata has a global partnered interconnect arrangement for AWS Direct Connect and Azure ExpressRoute. IZO Private connects businesses to cloud services over MPLS or Ethernet through one single provider globally to ensure network performance.
  • IZO Public -- tags and prioritizes content with guaranteed performance for Tata Communications enterprise customers.  The customer can map different types of traffic to different Classes of service.

"We're taking the necessary steps towards making the Internet Fit For Business™ by bringing a new level of predictability and reliability to the public Internet that does not exist today. This isn't something we can do alone and we're joined in this initiative to bring about a new era of internet, by some of the world's leading ISP and cloud providers as we collaborate to achieve a common goal. Cloud, in every form, continues to transform the way businesses operate, innovate and generate revenue. Our role is to make sure that we're delivering a network that supports and enhances everybody's network cloud," stated Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Tata Communications.

Tata's network reaches more than 240 countries and territories across 400 PoPs, as well as  nearly 1 million square feet of data center and collocation space worldwide. The company calculates that over 24% of the world's Internet routes travel over its network.
