New-Delhi headquartered Iris Global Services is all set to address enterprise cloud market in India with Alibaba Cloud services


Himanshu Chawla, COO, Iris Global Services, is optimistic to have at least $2 Million revenues coming in from Alibaba Cloud services this fiscal

Expanding its solution repertoire, Iris Global Services, the IT integration arm of Sanjiv Krishen led Iris Computers—the leading IT distribution company in India—has struck a tie-up with China’s Alibaba Cloud for addressing the growing market for enterprise cloud services in the country. Iris Global Services expects at least $2 Million revenues coming in from Alibaba Cloud services this fiscal. Iris Global Services  enjoys  rapport with government organizations and enterprises cutting across verticals.

Recently, Alibaba Cloud has set up its datacentre in Mumbai, which is aimed at conforming to India’s Apex Court’s directive for data localization. The company makes it clear that the Indian enterprise cloud market would primarily be addressed from its Mumbai datacentre. This move very much allays the uneasiness of those enterprises and organizations, which genuinely desire their data not to be residing on overseas datacentres.

Alibaba Cloud now has 33 availability zones across 16 economic centres globally, with coverage extending across Mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Australia, the Middle-East, Europe, U.S. (East & West Coast) and India. Mumbai datacentre is the newest addition to Alibaba Cloud’s global footprints.

Interacting recently with Digital Edge, Himanshu Chawla, COO, Iris Global Services, confided that his company had seriously been evaluating the possible tie-up with some cloud players; finally, Iris Global Services zeros on to Alibaba Cloud.

Alibaba Cloud provides a range of computing services including high performance elastic computing power in the cloud like data storage, relational database, big data analysis, protection and content delivery networks. Interestingly Alibaba cloud is also working in the cutting edge areas of Iot (Internet of Things), virtual reality, smart homes, automotive networking and information and cloud based mobile device operating technologies.

Iris Global Services plans to address vertical-specific cloud solutions using Alibaba platform. “The USP of Alibaba Cloud will be to provide industry and domain specific solutions meant for that particular business vertical including FMCG, automation, transportation, and smart cities among others”. Iris Global Services is already testing with 100 seats for its partners on Alibaba Cloud platform and hopes to convert them to 100 per cent paid customers paving the way for more.
