OVHcloud has announced the launch of its first data centre in India, as part of its Asia Pacific expansion plans which will see the deployment of two additional data centres in Singapore and Australia by next year.
Adding to OVHcloud’s network of data centres worldwide, the new Mumbai facility is part of its recently announced global strategic plan to build 15 new sites by 2024. The global expansion will provide OVHcloud customers with open, trusted, sovereign and sustainable cloud solutions that will enable them to meet growing digital needs.
The announcement comes at a crucial time for the Asia Pacific region, which has witnessed an uptick in cloud adoption amidst sharper regulatory scrutiny over data sovereignty and environmental concerns. Particularly for India, cloud-enabled digital transformation is driving explosive growth of the national digital economy, that already outpaces growth of the larger economy by 2.4 times.
Additionally, under the Digital India government campaign underpinning a concerted push for digital transformation on a national scale, business and government sectors are both set to increase their reliance on the cloud.
Since the expansion of our presence in the Asia Pacific market, the region has experienced phenomenal growth of its digital economy. India, Singapore and Australia remain critical markets that are driving this growth from a business transformation and digital innovation perspective,” said Michel Paulin, Chief Executive Officer, OVHcloud.
“Data sovereignty and sustainability will continue to be key priorities that have to be balanced with rapidly increasing digital needs. We are confident that new data centres will further help OVHcloud’s goal of becoming the cloud provider of choice for customers in the region, in enabling them to remain compliant while benefiting from our unique proposition of an open, reversible and sustainable cloud.”
