Reliance Communications Deploys 5 New Cloud Nodes in India
Reliance Communications (RCOM) has deployed Cloud Xchange (Cloud X) nodes in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
“These Cloud Xchange nodes can help government departments access 240 times the amount of compute power currently available in government data centers, and over six times the high speed storage currently available in India, said Reliance Group Chairman Anil Dhirubhai Ambani.
The Cloud X nodes are designed to support cloud networking and orchestration, including self-provisioning of network resources and bandwidth-on-demand.
That means infrastructure provisioning in a few clicks, as well as deployment of complex multi-tiered enterprise applications directly on enterprise networks in minutes, rather than months.
“The network must now undergo a profound transformation, from a static entity, to a dynamic, intelligent, application-aware fabric that can support multiple traffic requirements, diverse geographies and flexible pricing models,” said Bill Barney, Reliance Communications (Enterprise) and Global Cloud Xchange CEO.
The Reliance Group today is India's largest provider of data center facilities, with a total capacity of over 600,000 square feet spread across the country and 11 data centers.
