Vultr announced the launch of its cloud data center location in Mumbai to power growth and digital transformation in India. The opening marks Vultr’s 25th global location and brings easy-to-use, high-performance cloud infrastructure to Indian businesses and developers at affordable, predictable prices, enabling users to provision Optimized Cloud Compute instances powered by 3rd Generation AMD EPYC processors, as well as Cloud Compute instances powered by Intel Xeon CPUs.
According to Research and Markets “Cloud Infrastructure Market in India 2021” report, the Indian Cloud Infrastructure Market was valued at INR 301.40 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29% during the 2021 – 2025 period to reach INR 1,169.23 billion by 2025. The demand for improved infrastructure, the economic benefits of cloud computing, and the government’s efforts to promote Digital India are among the factors propelling this explosive market growth.
In today’s business environment, organisations demand agile, intelligent business and IT applications. In practice, this translates to growing urgency to move from legacy technologies to cloud-based solutions. Making the leap to cloud computing models has the potential to turn traditional companies into disruptive market forces.
“Mumbai is the financial capital of India, the leading data centre hub in the country, and the preferred destination for cloud players. Mumbai’s excellent infrastructure support makes it a great strategic fit for us in expanding our global footprint,” said Vinod Chacko, Business Development Director, Vultr. “We are glad to be investing in the economy here and providing world class, affordably-priced cloud computing to the local market.”
The opening of Vultr’s Mumbai data centre location will empower businesses across India to innovate more quickly and at reduced cost. Vultr’s cloud computing platform offers better price-to-performance than the three Big Tech clouds, and simple, transparent pricing with no hidden fees.
Vultr already counts a large number of Indian businesses among its customers, such as Dukaan, a DIY platform for creating e-commerce sites. Subhash Choudhary, founder of Dukaan, shared, “It’s incredibly exciting that Vultr has opened a location in India. We already use Vultr for our edge locations across the world. With a data centre location in India, our home country, we will be shifting a lot more workloads over to Vultr. The price-to-performance ratio, ease of spinning up on-demand bare metal servers, and first class BGP support makes Vultr a perfect choice.”
Cloud computing has been a significant factor in business success over the past decade, while the COVID-19 pandemic has further solidified its importance through the exponential rise of remote working. Yet, the high cost of Big Tech clouds has led some businesses to even consider repatriating workloads to on-premises infrastructure. Vultr has been successful by offering an alternative — delivering all the benefits of cloud infrastructure, but at a disruptive price-to-performance ratio and with unrivaled ease of use.
Vultr’s streamlined interface and powerful API give developers and businesses the foundation to do anything they need, and the ability to deploy an instance in less than 60 seconds. Developers can sign up to try the platform at www.vultr.com.
