New Delhi: The US tech giant Google will soon set up a Cloud infrastructure around New Delhi and NCR to meet increasing customer demands in a key growth market.
It will be the second such infrastructure in the country and the tenth in the Asia-Pacific region.
According to Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian, the company has seen enormous growth in demand for Google cloud services in India so it was expanding its footprint in a new cloud region.
The new infrastructure will help provide solutions to problems such as disaster recovery in India and ensure low latency for many state-owned enterprises in and around Delhi, Kurian added.
Google did not say how much it had invested to put in place the new cloud installations.
India’s emerging start-up economy has also helped drive and accelerate the use of cloud services, the Google Cloud (India) Managing Director Bikram Singh Bedi said.
Google Cloud counts homegrown social network ShareChat, online travel firm Cleartrip and private sector lender HDFC Bank among its India customers.
Google has bet big on India. Last year, it invested $4.5 billion in Jio Platforms, the digital unit of oil-to-telecoms conglomerate Reliance Industries, from a so-called $10 billion digitisation fund targeted for the country.
