Partnership to provide connectivity to cloud computing service, Microsoft Azure

Vodafone Idea Business Services (VIBS), the enterprise arm of Vodafone Idea Ltd., has entered into a partnership with Microsoft to provide connectivity to Microsoft Azure, a cloud computing service.

The partnership will allow customers to connect to their applications on Azure through a private, secure and high-performance multi-protocol label switching virtual private networks (MPLS VPN) connectivity, the company said in a statement.

Microsoft Azure has been created for building, testing, deploying and managing applications and services.

“Cloud adoption is a ‘when’ and not an ‘if’. It is integral to growing the business economically, with speed and efficiency. However, robust network connectivity will always be required to get the best out of cloud. With the market moving towards cloud at a fast pace, our focus is to build an ecosystem that allows our customers to extend their on-premise network on to Microsoft Cloud on a private connection,” Nick Gliddon, Chief Enterprise Business Officer at Vodafone Idea, said.

VIBS partnership with Microsoft is a step towards supporting the growth of companies that are rapidly adopting hybrid and cloud-based models to host their applications in their digital transformation journey. This allows customers to take advantage of the scalability and agility that cloud offers.

Additionally, VIBS plans to make businesses more flexible and responsive to customers and market dynamics through the partnership with MS Azure, it added.
