Reliance Data Center, a part of Reliance Communications (RCom), has launched a hosted infrastructure service based on the Microsoft platform for Enterprises and Small & Medium businesses (SMBs) in India.
Reliance Cloud Computing Services
The new service, 'Reliance Cloud Computing Services', will initially be offered from their Mumbai data centers. Currently, RCom has nine data centers across the country, occupying around 6.5 lakh square feet of hosting space. The Rs. 2,900-crore Reliance Data Center division has also managed to command 60 percent market share.
To begin with, RCom will provide virtual hosting services and has created service schemes depending on computing resource requirements. Over the course of the year, Reliance Data Center will enable enterprises and SMBs in India to gain access to a variety of enterprise scale IT solutions, applications and services on the pay-as-you-go model.
Based on Microsoft Platform and Technologies
Reliance Cloud Computing Services are based on Microsoft's virtualization and management technologies, and the hosting service is made possible through the Dynamic Data Centre Toolkit, which is a tool for leveraging virtualization infrastructure on Windows Server 2008 R2. This is also being complemented by System Center Operations Manager and System Center Virtual Machine Manager, to create managed services and partner hosted cloud offerings.
