RCom launches cloud services delivery network

The upgrade is aimed at the emerging MNC data centers, and RCom's own data center facilities

With several data centers billed to come up in India, telcos are looking at the market for cloud exchanges, an area which has made global companies like Equinix rich.

Reliance Communications (RCom) has announced launch of next-generation cloud services delivery network in five cities across the country.

It has deployed Cloud Xchange (Cloud X) nodes in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad and plans to launch 120 such nodes across the globe by end of 2015.

Reliance Group Chairman Anil Ambani earlier this month said the company would achieve full deployment of its next-generation content and cloud delivery network by the end of this year.

Cloud X offers on-demand low-cost cloud services. Users can deploy cloud servers and applications and manage lifecycle of these resources online, the company said.

"Cloud X is changing the paradigm of cloud computing. 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," RCom (Enterprise) and Global Cloud Xchange CEO Bill Barney said.

Reliance Group with its 11 data center facilities has a total capacity of over 600,000 sq ft across the country. They are connected by Reliance's large terrestrial fiber network and submarine sub-sea cable infrastructure.
