EMC-Cisco launch cloud computing Centre in Bangalore

This is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between two information technology (IT) industry leaders with the twin facilities located at the EMC Centre of Excellence and at the Cisco Globalization Centre East, creating a lab that provides Indian customers with an opportunity to experience the benefits and reliability of cloud-based IT infrastructure.

The twin Centres aim to accelerate customers’ transition to an agile cloud-based infrastructure by enabling proof-of-concepts and helping them experience innovative solutions to some of their critical business challenges, a statement here said.

Manoj Chugh, President, EMC India and SAARC, said: "While Cloud Computing is a huge buzzword in technology, adoption is taking its time as CIOs are seeking the reassurance that cloud computing infrastructures are reliable, scalable, and secure.

"The labs established in Bangalore by EMC and Cisco is a live test bed for customers to come in and validate their business cases in a live environment", he said.

Elaborating on the joint initiative, Naresh Wadhwa, President and Country Manager, Cisco India & SAARC said, "Our approach to cloud computing is to maximize customer choice and industry innovation, so our partnership with EMC reinforces our commitment to help customers accelerate adoption of this phenomenal trend in IT."
