Amazon Bets High on AWS for the Indian Market
Date: Tuesday , January 31, 2017
When our Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched ‘Startup India, Standup India’ & ‘Digital India’, probably no one would have deduced the moments will grow stronger each day and will see a huge number of startups, SMEs and multinational companies joining the mission. Alongside, both the missions pushed company to take ‘Cloud’ shelter for better cost saving and effective utilization of available resources to focus on the core vision and mission of the company. But whether it is moving to cloud or employing it for the very first time, the task isn’t easy enough and requires exhaustive guidance of experts. And in this race of cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has grabbed significant share to emerge as clear winner among other providers like Microsoft, Google and IBM. According to quarterly analysis by Synergy Research Group, AWS holds around 45 percent share of the global public market for IaaS, which is greater than Microsoft, Google and IBM combined together.
With the ever growing need of the market, AWS is also strengthening its presence within India and soon will emerge as one of the leading providers. We will also see a considerable increase in the number of AWS providers in the days to come. AWS already had over 75,000 active customers in India by mid-2016 representing a diverse base of industries with brands like Ola, Tata Motors, Hotstar, redBus, Macmillan India and several others, that it serves from its six offices across India – Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Pune and Chennai.
Understanding the growing influence and the market needs for AWS in India, we at siliconindia bring to you ‘20 Most Promising Amazon Web Services Providers’. Each of these service providers are unique in their approach and strategies. Hope the list will suffice its purpose of creation.
