"The true test of 2021 will be how organizations adopt a cloud first approach. Through our partnership with Tata Communications, we will be able to provide our customers with a unified, end-to-end experience that will remove the complexity in cloud management and help them transform at speed and scale", said Amitabh Jacob, Head of Partners and Alliances at Google Cloud India.
Tata Communications' cloud capabilities are enabled by 14 cloud nodes along with its Tier-1 network, which carries about 30% of the world's Internet routes.
