As Indian enterprises look to embrace Cloud-driven solutions, the thriving developers’ community is increasingly preferring open, container native technologies for rapid application development and deployment.

The container-native platform enables DevOps teams to build, deploy and operate container-based microservices and serverless applications, using open source tools.

As developers understand the need to move fast, build for the Cloud but retain the flexibility to run where the business or workloads require, there is more leaning towards open source based, community driven technology stack to avoid cloud lock-in, the company said in a statement.

The company organised the second edition of its “Oracle Code” event here where developers attended keynotes, technical sessions and hands-on labs experience.

“In the Cloud economy, businesses are always searching for innovative ways to increase their developer velocity and agility to accelerate digital transformation,” said Ravi Pinto, Director-Product Management, Oracle Cloud Platform.

“Developers are increasingly preferring open, cloud-neutral and community-driven container-native software stacks that enable them to avoid cloud lock-in and to run in a true hybrid mode — so they can use the same stack in the Cloud — for that matter on any Cloud — as they run on-premises,” Pinto explained.

“Oracle Code” enables developers get hands-on view into emerging technologies and techniques for modern Cloud development. According to Oracle, key trends witnessed in the Indian developer ecosystem include conversational user interface, serverless computing, containers and microservices and Blockchain.

Data centre will also enable Indian businesses to run their applications on the company's Cloud platform

Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of the China-based Alibaba Group, on Wednesday announced to open a new data centre in India that will help nearly 51 million Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to begin their Cloud journey.

The Alibaba data centre, set to open in Mumbai in January, will begin a new competition for the existing players like Microsoft and Google in the country.

Microsoft sees Alibaba as the third competitor in the Cloud business in India, apart from Google and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“We are excited to be officially opening our new Mumbai data centre in early 2018, enabling us to work closely with more Indian enterprises,” Simon Hu, Senior Vice President of Alibaba Group and President of Alibaba Cloud, said in a statement.

“These local enterprises are innovative and operating in growth sectors, and we look forward to empowering them through our Cloud computing and data technologies,” Hu added.

As a key market in the company’s cloud’s globalisation strategy, India offers a business opportunity for rapid economic growth and scope for enterprises to expand beyond the country.

“Our vision to empower enterprises to go global is extended to our Indian clients with cloud products, including computing, storage and big data processing capabilities,” the company said.

The data centre will also enable Indian businesses to run their applications on the company’s Cloud platform.

The data centre’s service offerings include computing, database, storage and content delivery, networking, analytics and big data.

Alibaba Cloud has tied up with Global Cloud Xchange (GCX), a subsidiary of Reliance Communications, that enables direct access to Alibaba Cloud Express Connect through GCX’s “Cloud X Fusion” service.

The company had earlier also announced a partnership with Tata Communications to provide direct access to Alibaba Cloud Express Connect through Tata Communications’ IZOTM Private Connect Service.

Alibaba Cloud has 33 zones in 16 economic centres worldwide, with coverage extending across China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Australia, West Asia, Europe, India and the US.

“As we build the cloud network globally, India is another important piece that is firmly in place.

“This continues our commitment to India, helping it to develop trade opportunities with other markets in the region and beyond,” added Hu.

Alibaba Cloud would have a local team of consultants to provide service planning, implementation and after-sales support, helping Indian companies move to the cloud.

“This will extend what Alibaba Cloud is already doing to service thousands of customers from India globally,” the company said.

Set up in 2009, Alibaba Cloud is among the largest providers of public cloud services in China and one of the largest Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers in the world. IANS
