Microsoft to offer cloud services from local data centers by 2015

Microsoft’s cloud services in India have grown over 100 percent in revenue in the past year

In his first visit to India (New Delhi) as Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella today announced that Microsoft will offer commercial cloud services - Azure and Office 365, from local datacenters by the end of 2015. This is expected to accelerate public and hybrid cloud adoption significantly in India. Organisations in the country will benefit from data sovereignty, lower latency and geo redundancy with the availability of local infrastructure.

 

“Microsoft is deeply committed to helping people and organisations thrive in our mobile-first and cloud-first world - that’s why we are proud to offer our commercial cloud services through datacenters in India,” said Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft.  “With more than 250 million Indians using Internet-connected devices today, there is incredible demand and opportunity for India with Microsoft’s cloud services.”

 

“By offering our cloud services through local datacenters, we can help make Digital India a reality,” said Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman, Microsoft India. “This opens new possibilities in e-governance, financial inclusion, healthcare and education, and will help us positively impact the lives of a billion people.”

 

Microsoft’s cloud services in India have grown over 100 percent in revenue in the past year, and the commitment to offer locally hosted Microsoft Azure and Office 365 will further accelerate this. Microsoft’s locally available cloud services will open opportunities for banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) companies, state-owned enterprises and government departments to adopt the public cloud. The services offered via the local datacenters will create new avenues for Microsoft India’s 10,000+ partner ecosystem, comprised of hosters, independent software vendors (ISVs), system integrators (SIs) and others.
