On demand access to a multiple array of information technology related services has become an imperative of corporate enterprises; they have therefore drawn heavily on the cloud platform as the default mechanism to carry out business today. In a Sri Lankan context this paradigm shift towards the cloud has been slower considering the uncertainty in relation to data and information security. It is in this backdrop that Akaza, the national cloud platform of Sri Lanka Telecom has truly delivered. Local corporates are now able to utilize shared configurable computing resources via locally hosted internet servers, and pay in line with usage. This groundbreaking venture has addressed the essential requirement of securing confidential data which is where the bottleneck has been.
Akaza’s technology typically integrates all of its cloud services inclusive of Iaas, PaaS, DaaS, SaaS and CaaS with the business management platform of corporate enterprises. Effectively, a gamut of services ranging from infrastructure to software can be accessed by way of a self-service catalogue online, centralizing user management. The need for manual intervention in the form of technical support for provision of services has become obsolete thereby empowering the user. The end result? A cost effective means to secure management of essential data and information, reduced downtime to maintain and troubleshoot, significant improvement in IT related service delivery speeds, and ultimately a means for improvement of internal efficiencies.
Akaza provides the much awaited solution to staggering IT infrastructure and maintenance costs as well as technology obsolescence faced by corporate enterprises. The fundamental service stack, IaaS or Infrastructure as a Service has removed the emphasis from the traditional CAPEX model to that of investment in virtual infrastructure or hardware as and when needed.
AKAZA Public Cloud provides comprehensive infrastructure capabilities to host your most critical workloads of business applications and e-commerce or corporate websites. Also, we enable you to manage your services through powerful APIs and a user-friendly web interface portal.Ranging from virtual server space, network connections, bandwidth, IP addresses and load balancers, Akaza gives you the means to draw on a pool of hardware resources, which the cloud provider is responsible for maintaining.
In today’s business environment, the Akaza Cloud Platform takes away the complexity of having to manage traditional on premise application deployment. The need to procure, install, and configure hardware, database and application servers, along with a development and test environment, additional administration, and management of the infrastructure, database and middleware eats into additional time, money and corporate resources. PaaS or Platform as a Service is the solution to allowing faster deployment of new applications. In collaboration with leading cloud platform provider, Cumulogic, Akaza’s technology makes it easy to develop, deploy and manage applications on any cloud, while improving efficiency, time-to-market, and lower the cost of management.
The landscape of the desktop is going through significant change. End users are more remote than ever before, working from home, while on the road or branch offices, and they are accessing corporate resources from a variety of devices. At the same time, IT is under immense pressure to enable this new mobile workforce without sacrificing security and control. IT must ensure that corporate data and applications are secure while also controlling the costs associated with the management of end user devices.
AKAZA DaaS frees businesses from the endless cycle of purchasing, supporting, upgrading and ultimately replacing local PCs by providing an untethered “virtual” workspace that can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, on nearly any device, all for a predictable monthly fee.
The primary importance of Software as a Service (SaaS) as a software delivery mechanism is the fact that it shifts enterprise focus from deploying and supporting software applications to managing the services that applications provide instead. Deploying complex enterprise software such as ERP and CRM applications require a significant investment in physical infrastructure, licensing costs, as well as a large team of skilled IT personnel to integrate the software with existing systems and data. This eats into financial resources and time spent on non-value added activities.
The popularity of eLearning in the area of training, and the benefits of cloud-based Learning Management Systems have contributed towards organizations wanting to offer training methods that are flexible and cost-effective.

The unprecedented growth in unstructured data which encompasses e-mail messages, word processing documents, videos, photos, audio files, presentations, webpages and many other kinds of business documents are accelerating. This has been compounded by the popularity of rich media, the proliferation of mobile devices and the digitization of content. Unsustainable for current NAS/SAN infrastructures, backup and restoration eats into valuable time within an enterprise, while migration from older storage systems to new is very labour intensive.
All of this also serves to increase the cost. Most corporates are faced with a flat to declining storage budget and are compelled to manage the ever increasing storage with limited resources. SLT understands the need for a drastic change in storage infrastructure to tame the data explosion. Accordingly Cloudian together with Akaza, SLT’s national cloud platform offers corporates a powerful and cost effective storage solution. By using Cloudian, a business will have the benefit of stronger protection for data back up and disaster recovery alongside overall lower storage costs.
