From the accelerating shift in digital transformation to the need for a greener future, data is the new oil for all businesses. With the rise of digital transformation, organizations are searching for an IT infrastructure for delivering flexibility with safe security. The cloud is the new IT architecture for enterprises and will continue to be a meaningful change for the information and technology industry. Enterprises will invest more in cloud services which are boosting demand for network services and data centres. The main benefits of cloud services are enterprises do not need to make huge investments in infrastructure for using a huge infrastructure.
The major difference between a cloud vs a data centre is, a data centre denotes the on-premises hardware whereas the cloud infrastructure is off-premises. In case of scalability concerns, traditional data centres are scalable, but it includes challenges and delays. Furthermore, a cloud data system holds potentially unlimited capacity based on the organization’s service plan. Thirdly, cloud service is very cost-effective in case of pricing issues. In pricing issues for traditional data centres, the business pays directly for planning, hardware, software, and environment, and for cloud data centres, the business pays per use.
As per the report, India is currently the fastest-growing start-up ecosystem in the world. As per the forecast, it will also become the largest developer market by 2021 with over 5 million developers. The region is poised to unleash a tremendous amount of innovation in the next decade. The next generation of businesses is going to be built on the cloud, especially on cloud telephony services in India. As IT organizations across the world embrace ÏT-as-a-Service', it is creating huge demands for the "Off Prem" infrastructure delivered via data centres and manifested as the cloud. The major industry sectors such as Government, BFSI, Manufacturing, Retail/eCommerce, Healthcare etc have shown increased willingness to adopt public cloud, especially public cloud telecommunication services hosted from local data centre.
As per the view of industry experts, the technology evolution will continue to be led by cloud and virtualization and will elicit growth in the data service market. This however can only happen if there is a seamless movement of data across national borders, benefiting both business and consumers. Thereby, it is also enabling them to access the best available technology and services irrespective of where those resources may be located.
