Hello Gurusms, Welcome to WHT! I would think that with today's technology you would be able to work closely with any datacenter in the world. If you find one you like outside of India, go for it!

BSNL recently launched 100Mbps in Pune. Gurusms, check webwerks.in they are in Mumbai though, but do offer cloud.

We are in process of evaluating Indian market for Cloud hosting, the only thing which is holding us is ridiculously high bandwidth cost.

You should roll your own cloud with OpenStack or Eucalyptus. I'm sure there is plenty of untapped demand in India.

Check out http://iaas.tatacommunications.com/ Based on CloudStack. I'd say this is probably the largest, and most serious cloud provider in that region at the moment.

Dear All, thank you for your quick replies. Yes, in India we seriously lagg behind as far as bandwidth is concern. We do not have high speed connections. Infact this is one of the major reasons why I decided to opt for local vendor. I am still going through various options. More options are welcome. thanks in advance

They are more into offering PAAS than IAAS. This is an arm of TCS and mainly offering cloud based solutions for SMBs.

I visited their DC, they just provide VMware VMs and not real cloud servers. @Gurusms Change your mind, think about cloud servers in US or UK. I have spent lots of time in research - life of data centers in India

What do you mean by "VMware VMs but no real cloud servers" ? VMware can be used for cloud computing purposes too...

A person in their DC told that their so called cloud node is just virtualized with vmware Simple virtualization and nothing else

Posted by webwerksin, 01-06-2012, 03:45 AM
The information is incorrect we have never used VMWARE in our DC for virtualization. We have different instances for Virtualization based on KVM, XEN and Hyper-V. Do not know where you got such unreliable informatioon about VMWARE from our DC. It depends if cloud is ONLY a usage based platform then we do not have that. We offer fixed instance VPSs on multiple nodes.

If you are looking at Pune specifically, you have just 2-3 providers who can meet your requirements and the largest amongst them is TATA communications.

A person in your DC told me about this. Even a lady on phone gave me this information. In your DC, person showed me which servers are used for VPS. Also have a look at amazon ec2 Singapore instance.

Friend, don't think the TATA Instacompute calculator give you the entire cost, they've put a * and mentioned it doesn't include Bandwidth and you can select any provider for that, means, the most costlier part in India is excluded and min. you need to pay $55/mt for their min. instance VM in India/Singapore. To original topic: I would advise to take Rackspace, as they've tieup with AKAMI, it's the fastest and more POP locations and CDN is cheaper thru Rackspace as well. Just register a FREE a/c with Rightscale, deploy a LAMP server in Rackspace for 128MB ram, will cost you $11/mth, enable CDN, install cpanel, boom, you get fastest deployment to Indian customers. I tested 2 months back and monitored a simple static site, between Amazon EC2, Windows Azure & Rackspace all enabled with CDN. 1. Rackspace if CDN is enabled, else 3rd 2. Windows Azure is 1st if CDN enabled, else 2nd & uptime was really excellent than Rackspace/Amazon 3. Amazon came 3rd whther/not CDN and uptime was really bad I feel why both Rackspace & Azure came 1st if CDN is enabled because, both of them uses AKAMAI, the only CDN provider has more locations in India. Among Rackspace & Azure, it depends whther you want a Linux/Windows server. Note: Azure seems to be releasing support for persistant Linux VMs in Azure by mid 2012...!

As the OP hasn't been online at the forum for a few weeks, let's just close this up
