MTS has unveiled a new cloud offering for large enterprises in Russia.

#CloudMTS comprises “complex” computing and data storage cloud solutions with “advanced disaster” recovery options, according to a statement from the operator.

The services are based on a VMware-based cloud platform and MTS’ data centres.

The operator said it had re-equipped its data centers in Moscow, Saint-Petersburg and Novosibirsk with new data storage systems and servers.

It plans to do the same to data centers in other cities in 2017 with a view to enabling IaaS, SaaS and PaaS offerings, including Big-Data-as-a-Service.

Vladimir Khrenkov, Director of the MTS Innovation Center, which is leading the development of #CloudMTS, said: “By adopting cloud services, companies can achieve a threefold reduction in their IT infrastructure costs.

“With such clear economic savings, as well as the flexibility and simplicity of cloud management, we see great demand for our corporate cloud services.

“Our solutions are not only multi-faceted, with the option to integrate both IT and telecom services, but also guarantee a high level of security and reliability.”

MTS saw revenues grow 2.1 percent to RUB 436 billion last year, but profits fell by 2.1 percent to RUB 48.5 billion.

Vasyl Latsanych, Vice President for Strategy and Marketing, said: “The launch of #CloudMTS is yet another step in delivering on our digital strategy.

“MTS is poised to expand well beyond its original mobile service into the tech segments, including big data, financial and banking services, IoT, OTT, systems integration and e-commerce.”
