Amazon Announces Two New Data Centres for Mumbai
Rapidly Growing AWS
Amazon web services, AWS, is growing rapidly in reach, it seems. The cloud-based AWS has just opened its two new data centres in Mumbai. With a substantial presence of its competitors like Microsoft and Google in this domain, Amazon is taking every step to remain ahead in the market.
Amazon’s Existing Clientele
The company boasts of a high-profile clientele like Ola, STAR India, Tata Motors, Hike, Hungama, Bombay Stock Exchange, Lupin Pharmaceuticals, Future Group, Macmillan Publishers India, Infosys, Cognizant, Shaadi.com and NDTV. It claims to have a 75,000-strong client base in India and now the company is leaving no stones unturned in ensuring a continued strong presence in the web services market.
Plan of Action
The two new data centres opened in Mumbai aim at a faster information flow for businesses. According to Andy Jassy, CEO of the cloud business unit, most of the upcoming startups are using AWS to run important applications critical to their operations. This is why the data centres need to be sufficiently equipped to run smoothly. These data centres have their own power, security and cooling systems.
AWS provides services like database, analytics, computing, storage, networking and messaging, along with machine learning. Business from independent software vendors has increased by 80% since last year. At present, AWS has one-third of the market in its name.
Amazon is also looking at expansion and consolidation options with their Indian partners to capture a larger share of the market.
