IT company, NIIT Technologies, today said it has joined hands with Japan based Hitachi Information Systems to offer cloud computing services.

“With the tie-up, both the companies will offer complete portfolio of services around the cloud infrastructure to cater to the changing IT landscape,” NIIT Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer, Arvind Thakur, told reporters here.

“We will offer full cloud services by March 2010,” Thakur said.

Cloud computing is an emerging computing technology that uses the Internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications.

It allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with Internet access.

“Hitachi will own the cloud, while NIIT Technologies will harness its competencies and world-class process capability in remote infrastructure managed services to operate the cloud,” he said.

“Our customers will experience the highest quality of reliability, security and service,” Thakur said.

Hitachi would leverage NIIT Technologies data centre in Bangkok and create the first hub outside Japan, networked to their existing infrastructure, he said.
