With the increase in adoption of cloud-based applications and solutions and expected surge in demand from the government segment, enterprise software company Oracle is now mulling data centres in India. This would help the company to host the applications and various other cloud-based solutions within the country, given the sensitivity of nature of government business.
“We don’t have (own data centres in India) today though we are evaluating it. We are in discussions with a lot of local players on it though we don’t want to give any timeline or any definite plan. But certainly, the growth that we are seeing in cloud drives demand for that,” said Thomas Kurian, President, Product Development at Oracle.
