Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing division of Chinese e-retailer Alibaba, on Friday, announced the launch of its 2nd data centre in India.

The new availability zone, is situated in Mumbai, will offer product lines such as Flexible Computing, Data Storage, Database builds, Networking, Application Services, and Big Data Analytics to support the requirements of local governments and enterprises in the Alibaba Cloud India region, the company said in a statement.

Alibaba’s Expansion plan to provide better services

“The commencement of the second availability zone reiterates our focus on India as a key market in Alibaba Cloud’s global expansion strategy,” said Alex Li, General Manager, Alibaba Cloud India.

This year January, Alibaba Cloud set up its 1st India data centre in Mumbai. To provide with the surge in demand for Cloud computing services among the increasing number of small and medium-sized businesses in India.

Now the availability of 2 zones will further enhance the level of security of Alibaba Cloud’s data centres in India, the company said.

Enabling services for the new partners

The new zone is part of Alibaba Cloud’s strategy to expand its global footprint in order to serve a growing client base while also targeting new local customers.

“India presents a unique growth opportunity with digital transformation set to add close to $154 billion to India’s GDP,” Li said.

This year Alibaba Cloud also launched a distribution channel programme in India with HCL Infosystems Ltd and Ingram Micro as value-added distributors.

The distribution channel programme promotes partners to bring in-depth technical knowledge and build an open ecosystem among sales, technology and service partners.

Bringing in Employment Chances

Strengthening this network to a far extent, Alibaba Cloud said it would train 1,000 sales and technology personnel in India by March 2019.
