TCS to offer certification for cloud conformance test
New Delhi: Country's largest software services firm TCS on Tuesday said it has been appointed as an exclusive certification provider by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA).
Tata Consultancy Services will provide certification services for SNIA's cloud data management interface (CDMI) conformance test programme, which provides interoperability standards for end users.
Using the solution, vendors can ensure that their cloud storage products meet SNIA standards with greater efficiency, leading to faster time-to-market, increased market share and less cost, the company said in a statement.
The ever-growing demand for cloud storage solutions, coupled with the rapidly evolving number of products on the market, necessitates industry standardisation.
The CDMI standard is applicable to all types of cloud ? private, public and hybrid ? allowing IT departments and end users the freedom to operate between multiple clouds with an industry approved standard for data storage, migration and security.
TCS' CDMI Conformance Assurance Solution tests cloud storage products for adherence to SNIA's CDMI standards and reports issues that need to be fixed, the statement said.
"Our strategic cloud platforms in India and across the globe cater to a broad range of customer needs. We have the capability to deliver the certification and test services as per SNIA standards and are happy to be their trusted partner in their CTP programme," TCS Chief Technology Officer K Ananth Krishnan said.
