ESDS (Exuberant Support for Data Services) has launched its second data centre in Mumbai. The Uptime Institute certified cloud data centre is a part of the company’s Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) inked with the Government of Maharashtra at an investment of Rs. 200 crores.
Spread across over 80,000 square feet, the new data centre is located in Mahape, Navi Mumbai and is aimed to help ESDS create 500 employment opportunities in 2017-18. It offers private cloud solutions as well as the proprietary eNlight Public cloud hosting to customers.
“Maharashtra has always been among the leading destinations providing quality infrastructure to companies and creating employment opportunities, especially in the IT sectors,” says Devendra Fadnavis, chief minister of Maharashtra, in a statement. “Additionally, the country needs innovative technology solutions like the ESDS patented cloud and data centres to accelerate businesses in today’s digital economy.”
In addition to the launch of the new cloud data centre, ESDS has released its eNlight 360 hybrid cloud platform. This new offering is designed to offer large-size enterprises and SMEs an auto-scalable and pay-per-consume cloud hosting solution. Moreover, the new platform can be used to compute roll-out of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS based portfolio.
“Our new cloud data center and eNlight 360 on-premise hybrid cloud platform is a true testimony of our commitment to constantly innovate and raise industry benchmarks,” ESDS CEO and MD Piyush Somani said in a statement.
“Empowered with India’s only patented eNlight cloud, we are best poised to be the strategic partner fulfilling modern business demands for highly reliable, available and easily scalable IT infrastructure requirements. Additionally, we are keen to partner the government’s ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ campaigns that will drive connected economy, amplify business growth and project India as the innovation hub,” he added.
