Within months after Microsoft’s announcement of commercializing three data centres by end of 2015, Amazon Web Services (AWS), the pioneer in cloud infrastructure services, announced that in 2016 they expect to set up data centres in India with a heavy investment of millions of dollars.
AWS has the largest space in the world and expects its revenue to be $6.2 billion in 2015 and is growing by 40-50% annually. This India centre will enable to lessen latency – take less time for fetching data.
At the start of July, the customers will be enabled to do previews of infrastructure privately, with Azure, its enterprise-grade cloud computing platform. In the next year, Office 365 and Cloud CRM, a productivity suite in cloud version will be offered.
At the end of 2014, IBM, one of the top cloud venders, also has setup a data centre in Mumbai offering cloud services.
