Reliance Communications, along with its subsidiary Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) today announced a major expansion of its Cloud Platform inside India and across the globe.  As of noon today, 3,210 Indian Enterprises, 14,505 Global Enterprise and 231 of the Fortune 500 companies in Mumbai have seamlessly connected through the RCOM/GCX network.  On average, users on this new network will have the ability to multiply their corporate compute power by 9 to 15X, and their storage capabilities by over 100X plus access to 2M+ enterprise applications.  These users will also enjoy expanded Data Center footprint in India in addition to boosting their corporate Cloud ecosystem with the deployment of Cloud X Fusion across the country.

“We believe the outsourcing and driving of Clouds will nestle itself in India over the next decade in a similar way as software development, call centers and BPOs did in the last decade,” said Bill Barney, CEO of Reliance Communications (Enterprise) and Global Cloud Xchange. “This will drive huge growth in the Cloud and Data Center space across India, so it is mission-critical that we further enhance the end points of our network with state-of-the-art capabilities to ensure we are prepared to meet explosive new demands ahead.”

Currently the largest owner of cloud computing facilities in India, with 11 Data Centers fibered together with the largest terrestrial fiber network in the country and the world’s largest subsea cable infrastructure, RCOM/GCX is taking another step forward in optimizing its existing assets by expanding its Data Center campuses in Mumbai and in Bangalore, doubling the space and delivering 3X the power.

 “These enhanced facilities will serve as major hubs for our revolutionary Cloud X® ecosystem,” said Braham Singh, RCOM/GCX’s Senior Vice President of Product Management. “In parallel to the expansion of our Data Center footprint, we have deployed Cloud X Fusion across India, delivering predictable performance, carrier-level security for our enterprise MPLS customers to connect to the public Cloud directly from their private enterprise WAN.”

RCOM/GCX enterprise customers across India now have “on-net” access to leading public cloud platforms including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Softlayer, Google, Rackspace, VMWare and more than 20 others worldwide, as well as software services like Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps for Work.
