Vultr has announced start of their Mumbai location on 12th of this month. It’s amazing to see them entering India. Always a good thing for growth of cloud computing on demand in India. Besides Vultr, we have got Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Digital Ocean, Linode, Oracle Cloud etc in India. I heard OVH also planning for Indian location and so have to see how that goes. In meanwhile, let’s have a quick check on Vultr’s network connectivity.
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.
Just finished with SANOG 26 conference and tutorials. It went very nice. Interestingly this time conference did not start early morning like it did in SANOG 24 at Noida. It was rather late in afternoon. Also, on very good note - there were less Govt. bureaucrats to bore attendees with usual stuff they always talk about but have very little idea. One specific interesting presentation was Opportunities and Challenges for Broadband Wireless in India by Prof Abhay Karandikar (from IIT Mumbai).
Out in Mumbai to attend SANOG 26. Meet and greet if you are attending as well or around in Mumbai. :)
