Dialog Axiata unveils cloud platform for enterprises in Sri Lanka

The platform, launched in partnership with VMware, seeks to strengthen Sri Lanka’s enterprise cloud industry and digitization efforts.

Sri Lanka’s telecom provider Dialog Axiata have unveiled a platform called Dialog Enterprise Cloud by partnering with VMware, to fortify the country’s cloud prowess. With this launch, Dialog seeks to extend the capabilities of a software-defined data center (SDDC) with a self-service cloud environment for enterprises.

Dialog Axiata claim that Sri Lankan enterprises understand the benefits of the cloud when it comes to managing workloads. They say that these enterprises need end-to-end delivery of cloud services in order to mitigate unnecessary costs and prevent vendor lock-ins.

By partnering with VMware, Dialog say that they will leverage the former’s disaster recovery and backup recovery services to secure Dialog Enterprise Cloud platform. They claim that with the platform, Sri Lankan enterprises can design their own virtual data center easily and manage their own cloud services effectively.

According to Dialog, their cloud platform will provide multiple connectivity options to their virtual data centers while reducing overall IT overheads. They say that this platform will be launched at Sri Lanka’s first Tier-III ISO certified data center.

In closing, Dialog said that they will be including other VMware features on their Enterprise Cloud platform. It will be interesting to see how enterprises in Sri Lanka react to this cloud platform, following the launch of their Tier-III National Data Center last year.
