SUSE® today announced Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has selected SUSE OpenStack Cloud as the standard foundation of the TCS Enterprise Cloud Platform.
The TCS and SUSE teams have worked closely to architect a robust and flexible Enterprise Cloud Platform.
