Viva-MTS partners with Microsoft to launch the world-leading Azure Stack cloud platform

For the first time in Armenia and South Caucasus region: Viva-MTS partners with Microsoft to launch the world-leading Azure Stack cloud platform

Viva-MTS, the leading telecommunications operator in Armenia pre-launches the Azure Stack cloud platform. This is not only the first introduction of the cloud platform in Armenia but also the first in the South Caucasus region. Viva-MTS is the first company in Armenia to partner with Microsoft to offer Azure Stack cloud services for business customers from its own data centers.[1]

Azure Stack cloud platform offer from Viva-MTS will enable its business customers to reduce costs of developing their own solutions as well as accelerate the launch of their products in the international markets. Business customers will be able to create modern hybrid applications whilst simultaneously using the capacities of Viva-MTS’ local data centers and Microsoft’s global infrastructure. Customers will be able to choose where to store data and launch virtual machines, between their own or a partner’s data center, either in Armenia or among many different datacenter regions worldwide in which Microsoft Azure has a presence. Microsoft Azure integrates a comprehensive set of business solutions that can be accessible via the internet from anywhere anytime.

By having access to Azure Stack platform-based services hosted in Armenia, business customers can process data locally within the country. Using these services will help reducing the costs of adapting technology solutions and customer’s personnel to new working conditions. Seamless integration between the local environment and the public cloud in hybrid scenarios helps to secure smooth operation of the IT infrastructure, accelerate the launch of customer’s new business systems and provide opportunity for their flexible scaling. Azure Stack hosted at Viva-MTS cloud will also contribute to cost-optimization in the IT infrastructure maintenance, by eliminating capital expenditures and optimizing operational expenditures, which will enhance the success of IT processes and help with making room for growth: customers will pay for the services on the pay-as-you-use basis.

“Partnership with Microsoft and offering Azure cloud services from our own data centers will allow us to expand our portfolio of cloud services to corporate customers by providing them with access to the leading modern platform-based cloud services from the global leader in digital solutions. Armenian companies will be able to accelerate their access to global markets, including IT markets, while international corporations can do better in getting closer to Armenian consumers. Viva-MTS embarks on the next stage in the transformation into a digital services provider company, and gives this opportunity to its customers as well,” Viva-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian commented.

Microsoft Azure is a Cloud IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) leader, supporting over 200 pre-configured services. It will give opportunity to Viva-MTS to outsource its mainframe and to develop applications and solutions, tailored for specific business needs.

Azure’s provides efficiency, availability, elasticity, cybersecurity, mobility and productivity to businesses of all sizes. Worldwide businesses acknowledged Azure as the most affordable and trusted hybrid infrastructure and cloud solution for the corporate environment.
