As a part of its Digital India plan, Reliance is expanding its data centre footprints in India. Reliance is set to double the capacity of its existing 6000 sqft data centre to 1.2 mn sqft in next few years. This was announced by Reliance Group chairman Anil Ambani at the launch of Digital India Week on Wednesday.

“A crucial pre condition to the success of Digital India is the availability of unlimited cloud computing power the building block of which is data centre,” Ambani said.

He also announced that Reliance will achieve full deployment next generation content and cloud delivery network by end this year with fully operational Cloud Xchange points. These Xchange points will help government departments to multiply the computing power by 240 times the currently available in the government data centres and over six time high speed storage currently available in India. He also said that this network will have the ability to scale up 100 percent every 90 days as the Digital India initiatives gathers momentum.
