CloudData CentresIndiaTop Stories

Oracle and Bharti Airtel, an India-based premier communications solutions provider, have extended their partnership to support the growth of India’s digital economy by bringing a range of industry leading cloud solutions to more than one million enterprise customers.

The number of active Internet users in India is projected to grow from 622 million in 2020 to over 900 million by 2025, driven by affordable smartphones and data tariffs. With 5G services expected to begin in 2022, the Indian economy will see a further surge in demand for digital services and applications.

Additionally, organizations are moving to cloud-based applications to accelerate their Digital Transformation journeys. As a result, India’s public cloud market is expected to grow from US$3.6 billion in 2020 to US$9.5 billion by 2025.

To support the increasing demand for cloud services in India, Oracle will expand its India West (Mumbai) region capacity with Nxtra by Airtel – the data center subsidiary of Airtel.

The expanded Oracle Cloud Mumbai Region will be available in 2022. Nxtra by Airtel operates India’s largest data center network of 10 hyperdata centers and 120 edge data centers and plans to invest Rs.5000 cr (US$ 760 million) by 2025 to expand capacity by 3X to over 400 MW.
