This week I worked on the paperwork to get on the board of E2E Networks Ltd as one of the Independent Director. It was quite an interesting process as this is the first time I am joining the board of directors of an organisation. About E2E Not to be confused by the “Networks” in the name, E2E is in the business of selling high powered, low cost compute (Virtual machines) hosted in India targeted towards Indian organisations.
It’s great to see Amazon announcement two days back about launch of their region in Mumbai. In past I was quite happy to see their Cloudfront CDN PoPs in Mumbai & Chennai (blog post here). Now it’s just great to see a full AWS region out of Mumbai. :) Though it’s going to eat most of important customers from the smaller players still it’s good for industry as industry is too big and we need more & more of such large Cloud players in India to bring more and more content hosting in India.
