Alibaba Cloud to open new data centre in Mumbai
Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, has announced that clients can sign up for services to be delivered in its new data centre in India in Mumbai, set to open in January 2018. The data centre will help meet the demand for cloud computing services among the growing number of Indian small and medium size businesses in the region.

India is a key market in Alibaba Cloud’s globalisation strategy, and the firm sees tremendous business opportunity given the rapid growth of the Indian economy and the nature of the enterprises looking to expand from the country. Alibaba Cloud’s vision to empower enterprises anywhere in the world to go global is now extended to Indian clients with a comprehensive suite of high-performance cloud products including large-scale computing, storage resources, and Big Data processing capabilities.

Indian businesses of all sizes can now run their applications on Alibaba Cloud’s powerful, reliable, and secure cloud platform. Other data centre service offerings include elastic computing, database, storage and content delivery, networking, analytics and big data, containers, middleware, and security.

Alibaba Cloud now has 33 availability zones across 16 economic centres globally, with coverage extending across mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Australia, the Middle East, Europe, India and the US (East and West Coast).

Simon Hu, senior vice president of Alibaba Group and president of Alibaba Cloud said, “We are excited to be officially opening our new Mumbai, India data centre in early 2018, enabling us to work closely with more Indian enterprises. These local enterprises are innovative and operating in growth sectors, and we look forward to empowering them through our cloud computing and data technologies. As we build out the Alibaba Cloud network globally, India is another important piece that is now firmly in place. This continues our commitment to India, helping it to develop trade opportunities with other markets in the region and beyond.”

Alibaba Cloud will establish a local team of dedicated professional consultants to provide service planning, implementation and after-sales support, helping customers of all sizes as they move to the cloud and enabling them to realise their full growth potential. (GK)
