GPX Cloud Solutions are focused on enabling enterprises in India to accelerate their cloud adoption
DC industry is expanding at an unprecedented pace, it will generate a greater need for hyperscale DCs located strategically across the globe. The DC parks are getting established far from large metros. We are witnessing a higher growth into hyperscale facilities, with the demand to support the platforms of the worldwide web, social media, streaming, cloud gaming, AI, machine learning and, inevitably, hyperscale cloud providers too.
With the all biggies are eyeing to invest in the datacenter business including Reliance Industries, Adani Group and we have already seen on how Hirananadani backed Yotta is investing heavily into this business. At the same time the global giant Digital Realty also exploring on the opportunity. According to McKinsey, core digital sectors in India, such as IT and digital communication services are projected to double in size by 2025 to contribute $355-435 billion to the economy.
The recent pandemic has accelerated the move of companies large and small to the major cloud services. They are drawn by the scalability and accessibility of these platforms that are in place to assist with the complexities of a fully distributed workforce. Whether hosting previously in-house applications or utilizing full Infrastructure-as-a-Service models, many of these key providers have risen to the forefront of importance to global business.
Data Center growth in India:
Worldwide, with employees working from home and customers and partners using digital methods to interact and transact, Enterprises are transforming IT delivery systems and bringing applications and data processing closer to the users—in a colocation facility at the Edge Data Center. Deploying direct, private connections to network, cloud and content providers at the digital edge propels both application performance and user experience and adds to flexibility to shift gears and change directions in case of sudden challenging situations like COVID. Enterprises are leveraging hybrid multi-cloud IT platforms and benefits of interconnection with Internet Exchanges and Cloud Exchanges offered by hyperconnected Edge Data Centers like GPX.
Security & Reliability in a Data Center:
The ongoing pandemic situation has made businesses pay a greater attention to a reliable and enduring network connectivity to their remote workforce, customers, partners, and ecosystems like financial institutes and stock exchanges, among others.
Enterprises are increasingly moving away from on-prem data centres to either on cloud or to a third-party data centre which is always secured and fully managed 24x7 even during lockdown. In hyperconnected Edge Data Center like GPX, not only they can gain access to multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) via Cloud Exchange, but also have access to 170+ ISPs, 12 Carriers, 5 Internet Exchanges (IXes) and all major OTTs, thus enabling all these interconnections happening within same data center campus providing efficiency and reliability through redundancy. Another advantage of third-party data center is that if there is a sudden requirement for increased bandwidth capacity, enterprises’ on-prem DC will not be able to support that as compared to a third-party data center which can offer multiple options to support upsurge in bandwidth demand.
Direct interconnection with cloud over a Direct Dedicated Connect using a Cloud Exchange improves data security as compared to connecting to cloud over the internet. Moreover, in an Edge Data Center, Financial companies, like e-commerce, payment gateways, banking institutions including stock exchanges, can leverage interconnect solutions offered by Internet Exchanges to connect to multiple ISPs and carriers in a most reliable environment and are able to reach out to their customers and partners with improved latency and low cost. This helps financial companies to pass on this speed, cost and reliability advantages to their end users/ customers.
Cloud Exchange: flexibility to meet the challenges
Enterprises need flexibility to shift loads from own infra to a public cloud driven by sudden needs like the pandemic. Easy connectivity to a cloud exchange enable an enterprise for any such sudden change in their IT strategy. GPX is the first data center operator in India to launch a Cloud Exchange. GPX’s Open Cloud Exchange service enables direct, private, and secure connection to multiple Cloud Service Providers hosted inside the same GPX Mumbai data center campus where the cloud exchange is hosted. Enterprises can seamlessly connect to multiple cloud providers via a single port, accelerating their cloud adoption and enabling them to optimize hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud network strategies. Currently, there are 8 International CSPs present in GPX’s Mumbai data center campus, out of which AWS, Google Cloud, and Oracle Cloud currently offer direct private cloud connect.
