(WEB HOST INDUSTRY REVIEW) -- Web hosting provider Savvis (www.savvis.net) announced on Monday it will partner with Indian telecommunications provider Bharti airtel Limited (www.airtel.in) to offer managed hosting and cloud computing services in India.
The move follows Savvis' recent extension of its enterprise-class cloud computing service, Savvis Symphony Virtual Private Data Center, to European customers.
Part of the partnership is Savvis occupying Bharti Airtel’s data centers.
Savvis will provide its infrastructure and service platforms to host and support both local and international custumers using airtel's India-based data centers, bandwidth capacity and network support.
The companies will launch the first rollout in the next few weeks through airtel's Bangalore data center followed by launches in New Delhi, Pune, Mumbai and Chennai.
This addresses Savvis lack of coverage in India.
Having World-Wide data center coverage is the latest race to compete in cloud services.
