In January this year, Alibaba Cloud set up its first India data centre in Mumbai to meet the surge in demand for Cloud computing services among the growing number of Indian small and medium-sized businesses.

Dual availability zones will further enhance the level of security of Alibaba Cloud’s data centres in India, the company said.

The new availability zone is part of Alibaba Cloud’s strategy to expand its global footprint in order to serve a growing client base while also targeting new local customers.

“India presents a unique growth opportunity with digital transformation set to add close to $154 billion to India’s GDP,” Li said.
